“Field Law wanted to move to a cloud-based, integrated library system to manage the workflow of a multi-office, multi-librarian, regional law firm library. We wanted a system that would be easy for lawyers to use. Lawyers and librarians can now do enhanced resource searches that help them quickly pinpoint the tools they need to begin client research projects. Library staff can more efficiently manage the dynamic life cycle and cost of subscriptions across multiple offices. Using technology to streamline our processes is part of Field Law’s ongoing commitment to provide efficient and effective service to our clients. Soutron Global fit our requirements and their migration team was supportive and great to work with. We are very pleased with our new library catalogue and portal.”
Josette McEachern Library Manager, FIELD LAW

John P. Connolly George L. Ohrstrom Jr. Librarian, National Sporting Library & Museum

“Customer service at Soutron is tops, a #10! The library of the International Fertilizer Development Center needed modern functionality to make the archives visible in every catalog search result. Using the Soutron solution, our staff will find the fertilizer research done in the past by our IFDC agronomists, engineers and economists, as well as find the groundwork and early research done by the Tennessee Valley Authority, the TVA scientists, so that IFDC’s and TVA’s work in fertilizer continues to help feed the world.”
Joyce L. Fedeczko Managing Librarian and Archivist, IFDC
“Our physical law library has been greatly reduced over the last several years, and we did not require the complexity of our former software. A major factor in our making the decision to change to Soutron was their willingness to design a system to fit our specific needs, resulting in one that is more simple and much more user friendly. A huge thank you to Soutron’s staff for making the transition as quickly and easily as possible. They were readily available to answer any questions we had.”
Katherine Kavanaugh Accounts Manager, Cook, Yancey, King & Galloway, APLC
“Soutron is exactly what we were looking for to help us manage our library more efficiently and effectively.

Jacqueline Beattie Jacqueline Beattie, Content Management Lead, Neftex (Halliburton-Landmark)

Becky Bolliger HES Library J157, Halliburton
“The management of the Intellectual Property Archives at Rochester Electronics requires an extremely flexible database with strong security.

I am confident that our partnership will result in the robust catalog and tight access control that we have promised to our clients.”
Teresa Powell IP Archives Technical Librarian, Rochester Electronics, LLC

Laura Pike-Seeley Brand Archivist, Fossil Inc.

Our historic transaction records have already been digitized and are accessible online, and we look forward to expanding our digitization programme to other areas and including all in the archive so it can be easily found and accessed remotely.”
Sheila Miller RHASS Librarian, The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS)

Angela Betts Information and Intelligence Services, Uniper
“Our previous library software really never did what we wanted it to do for us, it wasn’t that easy to use and with support at the time moving to the USA we decided to move over to Soutron. We did look at other software vendors in the marketplace, but liked the extended functionality Soutron offered within the library management software and it really just ticked all the boxes for us.”
Helen Cafferata Helen Cafferata, National Information Services Manager, Berrymans Lace Mawer LLP
“As a modestly-resourced county historical society, we are very much looking forward to going live with SoutronSolo very soon.

Donald Munro Librarian and Past-President, St Albans and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society
“We have maintained a Library database at Ricardo for many years, and in 2012 we decided to move to the Soutron Library Management System as we already knew and trusted Soutron, who were able to provide a clear roadmap and future development of their own software. Today we are preparing for a re-launch using the new portal, and look forward to the benefits this will bring for both our internal users and external client subscribers.”
Roland Christopher Information Manager, Ricardo
“We were looking for a smaller version of our existing Adlib software we were stuck with on a local server. We wanted software that would provide us with a simplified straightforward archive and library solution. We selected Soutron as the whole product offered fits our needs, budget and we really liked your approach to things. Integration with our website was also important and as a cloud based software we are rest assured you will be maintaining this, so we don’t have to! “
Chris Bozejewicz Archivist & IT Manager, Polish Underground Movement Study Trust (PUMST)
“Although we are an international organization the needs of our library are relatively modest. The host of customizable features within the administration area, the improved functionality for end-users and the whole look and feel of the Soutron software gave us exactly what we required from a modern Library Management System.”
Linda Fawcett Information Manager, Amec Foster Wheeler
“Soutron were selected, after a public procurement process, to provide the new library management solution at the Law Reform Commission as it was felt you demonstrated a key understanding of the special library sector and could respond to the developing needs of the sector – and us in particular! – in an agile and effective matter.
You addressed all of the features and functionality specified in the government procurement process, but more importantly you also demonstrated a commitment to provide a flexible and customized solution. In particular we liked the fact you were able to provide multiple portals designed to match the requirements of our different user groups.”
Órla Gillen Library and Information Manager, Law Reform Commission
“The communications we receive and the support from the help desk is simply outstanding.

Compared to other LMS suppliers Soutron provided the perfect solution for a corporate library.”
Andrea Cable Library and Bookshop Manager, Oxford University Press
“Our staff are constantly on the go delivering programmes in various Commonwealth countries, a web based system really supports accessibility from whichever country they find themselves in. Ease of use and intuitiveness are big drivers; the system has to be straightforward because users want simple interfaces with simple search boxes that do a lot behind the scenes. Soutron continues to help us deliver our vision.”
Nsekanji Pelekamoyo Head of Library & Knowledge Services, The Commonwealth Secretariat

Shirley Sardena Medical Librarian, The University of Gibraltar

This, along with your excellent customer centric approach and initial demonstration of the system, made Soutron stand out as a supplier of choice for us.”
Heather Jardine St Bride Library Volunteer, St Bride Foundation
“We fell out of love with our previous software supplier. The upgrades process was also putting a strain on our own IT department, but thanks to Soutron and their new Cloud Based solution we now have software that is taken care of for us, much to the joy of our own IT department. We also really like the simplicity of field editing and look forward to going live very soon!”
Rob Petre College Archivist, Oxford University, St Edmund Hall College

Sandra Zuniga Guzman Librarian, Oxford Hub
“I must say that it is a pleasure working with this new tool. Especially now that I work with two screens.

“The ability to import and export content en masse and flexibly for our workflows and reporting needs is also very important to us as we are a small team. As we already used EndNote® for collecting publication records, thanks to Soutron it now takes half the time it did previously to add them to the LMS. We can now bulk import various record types, article metadata, migrated ejournals and ebooks directly into the LMS.”
Tim Wales Head of Library & Information Services, Rothamsted Research
“Using Soutron for our library management has made a huge improvement to our department. The self-checkout tool for our lawyers has worked wonders, no more manual checking and it is just so easy to keep track of our 800 books and journals.”
Andrew Phenix Information Services Manager, Wilsons Solicitors
“We chose Soutron to replace the outdated software used to manage the library’s print collection because of its flexibility, range of features, competitive pricing and attractive, user-friendly OPAC. I look forward to being able to manage the firm’s electronic and internal resources in addition to its print materials, and to utilizing Soutron as a knowledge management tool.
The customer service and training provided in implementing Soutron is terrific – very responsive, professional, and friendly. As a solo librarian with more familiarity with research than technical services, I especially appreciate being able to view recordings of the training sessions and the extensive online help guides. The OPAC looks to be easy for users to navigate and is simple for me to update. Working with Soutron Global supports the library’s provision of high-caliber information management and service to the firm.”
Karen Calarco Library Services Manager, Sideman & Bancroft LLP
“Sound Transit is pleased to have Soutron as our new ILS vendor. We chose Soutron because of your high-quality product and presentation, competitive pricing, and software dedicated to improving the overall library experience for patrons. We have also been very pleased with the Soutron staff we have been working with in preparation for our ILS migration.”
Bronwyn Dorhofer Research Librarian, Sound Transit
“Integrating our library and the archives data into a single system without compromising the collection management functionality on either side was a priority.
With the development of Soutron’s Portal and the ability to display the hierarchical relationships of our archives, finally we are able to present our entire holdings to researchers in one go.
As existing customers it feels like we’ve had some rather bespoke attention for a very modest increase in our costs.”
Hilary McEwan Archivist, The Commonwealth Secretariat
“We were keen to seek a new and cloud based library management product and selected Soutron to provide such a solution. With all the functions we needed, loans, online catalogue and a search portal for end users, it was a perfect match for our library. We find it very easy to use and love how we can add extra fields to the catalogue.
It really helps us and our users search the library catalogue with ease and Soutron provide us with very helpful support too.”
Giulia Galeazzi Library Coordinator
“BIALL selected Soutron Library Management (LMS) software to allow us to better manage and leverage the collective knowledge of our Association. This includes current known knowledge items, committee minutes, PDFs of previous newsletters and other internal documents. Soutron LMS will allow us to reduce administrative time, save on data duplication and increase accessibility and monitoring of our internal knowledge.
Soutron’s flexible cloud based software and built in API will also allow integration with our website. This, along with their attentive support, will prove to be a fundamental and valued addition to the Association.”
British and Irish Association of Law Librarians
“We selected Soutron for our new library management solution as you listened to our needs and we liked your approach to our future and current requirements.
We needed to update our current software and we really found the ability to combine our archive and library, digital content into one single repository ideal. It perfectly provides a solution for our and our Members’ needs.”
Annette Ruehlmann Librarian, Institution of Civil Engineers
“Soutron LMS is so much easier to use and navigate. We find the process of cataloguing and serials management perfectly suited to our requirements and thanks to Graham’s knowledge and input, the end results have been simply brilliant.
Soutron LMS is a great solution for a law firm like Geldards”
Tonia Sexton Information Manager, Geldards LLP
“I’d like to take this opportunity to express what a joy it is to work with Fred Wiese as the primary contact for our organization. He frequently goes above and beyond what can be expected from the role that he is performing. He not only has a very thorough understanding [of] Soutron’s role in our organization, but he is willing to share what he knows in ways that make my job easier. When I reach out for support or with questions he is very easy to communicate with, quick to respond and thorough in his responses. He is patient with my questions and – I can’t stress this enough – explains things when they need to be explained in ways that allow me and our organization as a whole to make decisions and act quickly when problems arise. I don’t know if we are just extraordinarily lucky to have our questions filtered through a single contact, or if this is the Soutron model, but knowing that when I log a ticket Fred will be responding removes some panic when issues with Soutron do crop up.
We’ve been having a summer of [newly outsourced] IT issues and interactions with Fred has been a bright spot.”
