|Inmagic, Inc.’s consulting division has announced the release of the
InfoCart, its new consulting product. Enabling work flow efficiencies for
both library staff and end-users, the InfoCart can be customized and incorporated
into Inmagic’s core DB/Text WebPublisher products: DB/Text WebPublisher
and DB/Text WebPublisher Lite.
"Much like the online shopping carts found at most online stores, the
InfoCart allows users the ability to save the results of a catalog search
so that item references can be grouped and stored for later retrieval,"
said Kevin Rourke, head of Inmagic’s consulting services division. "Individual
selections can be processed as a group of items, providing work flow efficiencies
for both users and library staff."
A customizable consulting product developed directly from the requests
ofWebPublisher customers, the InfoCart has drawn favorable customer comments,
according to the announcement. "We are looking to Inmagic’s InfoCart to
add the final level of true interactivity to our site," said Jessica Chaiken
of the National Rehabilitation Information Center (NARIC). Linda Jordan,
of the Federation of State Medical Boards, said: "The InfoCart is a great
way to provide users the ability to manage a Web-based catalog search.
It saves time and effort because they can access the saved set without
doing the search all over again."
Inmagic’s InfoCart is one of three new consulting products that marks
the beginning of an ever-expanding suite of consulting services designed
to help library staff and their end-users speed work flow and reduce costs.
Inmagic announced an Email Request System that allows users to request
items via e-mail directly from the online catalog. Comparable to a drive-through
window at a fast food restaurant, the system lets users searching for one
or two items request the item the moment they find it.
The Save Password system allows users to save passwords to the local
PC so that they need not retype their passwords each time they return to
the login page.
