EnvisonWare's Reservation Service

The Reservation Service, built on EnvisionWare’s revolutionary CloudNine platform, is web-based and is available as a hosted service. CloudNine, is designed to completely remove the burden of updating from customers, from a single branch library to a complex consortium. Our revolutionary ZeroClient is an innovative, ‘never update’ approach. The ZeroClient downloads all of the needed components when it starts and, as things change, downloads the new components automatically. The server is updated as needed by our Quality Assurance team. When EnvisionWare pushes out an update to the Service, every customer immediately has that update. This includes everything from small updates and patches to a major new release, ensuring that libraries are always running the latest update.

Reservation Service licenses are based upon service population as an all-inclusive subscription service that includes the software and maintenance removing the need for added costs as you install more branches or client PCs.

If you haven’t yet had a quote to install your new Reservation Service please contact us. We are currently taking advance bookings for migrations of existing customers and installation of new libraries.
