StackMap™ is a solution that provides patrons with a detailed map and written directions to an item in one click, without ever leaving the catalog. Libraries who already have the service will also have the option to use it in their mobile apps when signing up with Capira Technologies for their mobile patron service.
"Offering a mobile app with StackMap™ and self-checkout allows our busiest library users, and soon-to-be library users, to find the item they need in the catalog while they sit and wait to pick their kids up, map it as they walk in the library door, find it, check it out and continue on with their busy day ... no waiting in line, no small talk, no tiny paper receipt they will lose," she stated.
Harris added that
By leveraging the StackMap™ set of web APIs, Capira Technologies mobile apps will now provide the capability to display the visual mapping layout of where an item resides inside the library when users search the catalog. Additionally, the app will automatically zoom to the location of the item selected on the graphical mapping, allowing patrons to easily find where their item is located. This functionality in Capira Technologies mobile apps will sit alongside other patron-first features the developer offers, such as digital library cards, mobile library card signup and renewal, self-checkout, and push notifications.
"We are excited to offer StackMap™ integration into our customized library mobile apps," said
"We are particularly excited to be working with Capira on mobile because it will enable StackMap™ to provide that much more value to a library patron, by giving that patron the ability to carry the digital map with them while they attempt to navigate the physical space of the library," he stated. "Working with Capira has been a great experience for us to really collaborate and tailor the StackMap™ experience to a native mobile environment."
