EBSCO Information Services and Capita Increase Efficiency for Mutual Customers

~ Electronic Data Interchange Available for EBSCO Customers Using Alto Library Management System ~

IPSWICH, Mass. — March 3, 2016EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and Capita are working together to make customers’ workflow more efficient. Following customer testing, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) invoicing using the EDIFACT standard is now available to EBSCO customers who use Capita’s Alto Library Management System (LMS).

Importing electronic invoices when purchasing serials saves librarians time by eliminating the need to manually input invoice data. By streamlining the workflow librarians can spend less time managing subscriptions and more time helping researchers achieve their objectives.

EBSCO supports the exchange of EDI for serials invoices, claims and orders with a variety of Library Management Systems using industry standards as well as proprietary formats and continuously works to test new releases and interfaces as they become available.
