ByWater Solutions Plans Enhanced Koha Features

ByWater Solutions is in the process of updating the open source Koha ILS. One new development is the integration of five econtent services into Koha’s catalog: OverDrive, Axis 360, Recorded Books, Serials Solutions, and Freading. Now patrons can check out materials from these services from within the Koha catalog. Several other changes are in the pipeline, including the following:  
  • A rewrite of the accounts system is designed to improve the reporting capabilities for fines and enable PayPal integration so patrons can pay their fines from within the OPAC.
  • An EDI development that will facilitate electronic ordering and invoicing is in the testing phase.
  • Speed enhancements, such as the application of Elasticsearch to the system, will allow larger institutions to use Koha and give the staff and patron interfaces quicker response times.
