I had no concerns when upgrading to Liberty, the Softlink team took care of everything from implementation to data conversion. Liberty was up and running to begin using from day one with no issues.

The search functionality in Liberty has meant researching information is much easier for staff, scientists and students. They no longer need to search separate databases but can find exactly what they need instantly in one search in Liberty.

Softlink staff provide the kind of attention to detail that make the difference between Softlink and other vendors. With Softlink you don’t just learn how the program works. You learn how to make it work for you. I couldn’t do my job today without illumin.
