A software application that can efficiently order new materials, check in and route serials, claim missing issues, track costs, and identify duplicate/unneeded subscriptions can be a time saver for library staff and a money saver for the firm. SIMA Serials does all this and more. Everythingincluding serials management, acquisitions, accounting, reports, searching, spell checking, even emailis seamlessly integrated, and the elegant user interface displays all key information on a single screen.

If you acquire SIMA Serials Online now and later decide to upgrade to the SIMA Camelot Online Integrated Library System, your SIMA Serials Online titles will seamlessly transfer to the SIMA Camelot Online program ... and since SIMA Serials Online operates the same as the Serials application in SIMA Camelot Online, you will have NO learning curve!
