With over 15,000 systems worldwide, Koha is one of the most widely used Library Management Systems (LMS) in the world and for good reason…
Used and developed by libraries of all types and sizes, this Open Source LMS is richly featured and fully scalable according to your organisation’s needs.
Koha is entirely web-based for both staff and public functions. This helps make the system light, easy to use, easy to deploy and easy to manage.
For use of Koha’s OPAC, all features are implemented in currently available major browsers.
Koha’s impressive feature set continues to evolve and expand to meet the needs of its user base. It includes modules for circulation, cataloguing, acquisitions, serials, course reserves, user management, inter library loans, and more.
As an ISO27001 company, PTFS Europe has an excellent reputation for the quality of the support service that is delivered. Our staff are highly skilled and all have many years experience in working in the library sector. We are supporting over a hundred organisations, many of which are extremely demanding in the quality of the service that we deliver. We can only provide this service due to the high quality and experience of our staff.
All of our staff are based in the UK and, between them, have hundreds of years of experience working in library automation. Koha is an easy system to administer and all administration takes place through a web client. Also, as a hosted solution, there is no ongoing responsibility on staff to maintain and configure the infrastructure or application. Local administration is relatively lightweight and many of the regular admin processes are carried out via scripts and cron jobs. The majority of our customers do not have dedicated systems staff and our standard support service reflects this.
Koha has an active user community worldwide that participates in guiding software direction and sponsoring product development. Over 40 companies worldwide are now actively contributing to the product with over 400+ Koha contributors submitting code and translations into over 40 languages. There have been over 15k downloads of the software globally.
