Roam allows library staff the freedom to move around the branch

No longer constrained to sit behind an information desk, but able to help patrons with catalog inquiries, event information and registration, room bookings, library account setup, and much more, all from a mobile device.

 Roam module spec


Roam allows staff to be away from service and information desks, and manage all your customer-facing tasks from a single handheld device, allowing you to freely interact with your customers.
