SOLUS and Patron Point announce major new integration

SOLUS and Patron Point are pleased to announce a new integration between eb#1, SOLUS’s Events & Room Bookings platform and Patron Point’s Library Marketing Automation platform.

Dublin, Ohio  ()

Launching with Moonee Valley Libraries in Australia the development deeply integrates Patron Point’s automated email marketing and SOLUS’s Events & Room Bookings solution and enables libraries to seamlessly market their Events and Rooms. Some key features of the integration are:

  • Full automation between Patron Point and SOLUS. The library designs their emails, sets a schedule and target patrons and the system does the rest every week or every month or whatever schedule they like
  • Only available events. Events that are fully booked or cancelled are hidden from view (optional) ? Full filtering by category and location. The library can design different emails for different audiences
  • Series summaries. In emails we show one entry for the series with the time/location details summarize to save space and make the events lists manageable in size

Neil Wishart, CEO of SOLUS states, “This is a great integration for our customers that are already using Patron Point’s library marketing automation platform. It makes it easy for libraries to market their Events and Rooms for hire and we’re delighted to have the first customer benefitting and going live. We hope to extend the integration to other SOLUS products moving forward and are delighted to be working with Patron Point.

Ian Downie, Founder and CEO of Patron Point states, “We’re always looking to make the marketing of library services easier for our customers and automating the promotion of Events & Room Bookings, a key part of library service provision, will reduce the set up time for our customers and maximise their attendance figures. SOLUS are taking a novel approach in this space and we’re excited for our mutual customers.”
