We Love ResourceMate
Comments: If you are a small library or any other entity that needs to have your books recorded--this program really works well.
Our library is small so joining a consortium would have cost us more in annual upkeep than we have allowance for books.
I looked at many products before I chose ResourceMate and tried them out to see how they ran. ResourceMate out preformed them all.
I was going to try the free software that is available but it is not as easy to use as this product. THAT is how much I love ResourceMate.
We plug in the ISBN and all the information comes up. Now, we still have to look that over because the information coming from the libraries may not be correct--but we do not have to wait an hour for the data to appear. Whenever I needed help the customer service people have gone above and beyond normal customer service, working on the problem until there was a solution. I really appreciate the shared screen, I learned a lot with those invisible hands taking over the screen and showing me the way.
Getting our collection online has proven to be difficult.
I think there must be an easier way to do it but since I'm not a programmer--there you are.

Very convenient in the African Post/Secondary school in which it (Essential Plus version) has been used
Comments: Ease of use and flexibility
Pros: Ease of use, great customer support, good help manual, demo version, ease of upload of data from another software, user friendly and clear screens, ability to customise reports, labels, grid layouts, OPAC screens
Cons: 1) It would have been far better if the cataloguing module would have been a true relational database where the common cataloguing data (for all copies of the same book) like Subjects, Dewey, author, ISBN, title, imprint was in one table with the accession details (date purchased, price, bar-code) being in a linked 2nd table. This way a change in the catalogue table would be automatically updated for all copies of the book. 2) Accessible lists of subjects, authors, deweys (+ other authority lists) so that mistakes can easily be corrected throughout the whole database 3) Provision for bulk transfer of data across fields would also be useful.
