Surpass Hosting Service

Surpass Hosting Services puts your entire Surpass system on our servers, accessible via the web.

All software is installed and maintained on our servers, so there’s nothing for you to install or update on your end.  We handle all program upgrades, updates, backups, and maintenance.  Not only can you access your core functions remotely, but you’ll also provide your patrons with an on-line searchable catalog that they can access from home when you subscribe to this service.

Any time, anywhere access

Your surpass system is available all the time from any location.  You won’t be tied to specific computers at the library for administrative access and your patrons can access your catalog from anywhere too.


Surpass will keep your data safe. Regular back-ups and server maintenance assure your day will be uninterrupted with server problems.


Because we maintain your Surpass system for you, you’ll save the time and money associated with purchasing and maintaining a local server, plus the time saved for maintenance and upgrades of the software.  Saving time is saving money!

Mac or PC

You can connect to the hosting service from any Mac or PC (not Chromebooks at this time.)  A small connection client loads onto your computer or as a plug-in to your browser.  We always support the newest versions of either operating system.

“We easily migrated from an in-house Surpass network-based system to the Surpass Web Hosting system which provides us with the flexibility to access our Surpass products from any computer 24/7.  The daily operations of our libraries have been simplified with this web-based system, including automatic upgrades and backups of our database.”
