The functionality to return items outside of standard library open hours is a modern service offering that is in the interest of both customers and libraries. returnIT™ integrates with the library LMS and discharges the items from the user record. The items are collected in one or more of our media-friendly book bins.
The returnIT™ is a fully automated book return machine. It is designed to offer a superior service when returning library items, reduce queues and waiting times and to free up library staff from returns transactions. The system sorts items into different categories easily.
Sorting can be configured to suit the libraries needs and budgets from single bin to 2, 3, 5 or 30 bins, the system is designed so you can add a module as many times as you like. More than one feed can be implemented to speed up the return process.
The returnIT™ can easily be built into existing interior walls and enables the user to quickly return items. Whenever a user places an item in the slot, returnIT™ automatically recognises whether it belongs to your library, opens the hatch and checks in the item. When it does not recognize the library item, the hatch remains closed.
