Many other PC-based automation systems have been on the market in the years since, most of them having either gone out of business or bought-up and closed down by larger companies. Surpass, on the other hand, has enjoyed long-term, consistent development and leadership from its original founder and CEO. This has led to a very strong product offering being built on years of input, feedback, and suggestions from Surpass users worldwide.
Many new capabilities have been added to Surpass and it continues to evolve to meet the growing needs of the various types of libraries using the system. With ease-of-use as the key design consideration with all new features, Surpass has found a home in many types of libraries, some even run by volunteers with little to no experience in library systems.
