VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – October 22, 2013 – Atlas Systems, the leading provider of time-saving solutions for libraries, today announced the availability of Aeon Concierge and the release of version 3.5 of the Aeon software for managing special collections user services.

According to Stephanie Spires, Chief Service Officer for Atlas Systems, an annual subscription to Aeon Concierge delivers the customized services many libraries, archives and museums have been asking for. “Aeon Concierge will help our users implement new releases, review and analyze their workflow for enhanced productivity, and help ensure the continued smooth integration of Aeon with other programs and stylesheets,” she said. “The Aeon Concierge team will also assist in creating custom reports to support data-driven assessments of an institution’s special collections services.”
In announcing the release of Aeon 3.5 Chief Customer Officer Genie Powell commented that Aeon 3.5 delivers enhancements that have been prioritized by the Aeon user community. Highlights of the new release include:
– Times are stored in UTC format so that hosted servers can see times in their local time zone
– Ability to assign billing categories to individual users and charge them at different rates
