Inmagic Introduces the InfoCart Customized Consulting Product

Inmagic, Inc.ís 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 Inmagicís 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 Inmagicís 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 Inmagicís 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."

Inmagicís 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.
