Centriva is an integrated suite of applications that provide the ideal centralized automation solution for libraries with multiple branches including school districts.
As a centralized automation system, Centriva uses a single, centrally located database for all holding and circulation data for all locations. Centriva will vastly reduce maintenance and support costs while increasing resource availability. Centriva accomplishes this while preserving local function for individual libraries.
Centriva's Web-based catalog, Surpass Safari Web Edition, provides an intuitive, feature-rich catalog for your patrons with unique features such as patron-written book reviews. If you choose, Safari can provide access to your catalog from home or other locations outside of your library.
Training and support for Centriva is provided to all users, not just a few district or system-level personnel. Your Centriva purchase includes the first year of maintenance and support in the purchase price. You'll receive the highly acclaimed support services of the Surpass Support Team, where we feature a "no-hold" toll-free support line and a dedicated technician's hotline.
Centriva is a 6th generation automation solution from Surpass. This means that we've built Centriva on the core components and technologies that have been refined and enhanced over years of use in real libraries. We've incorporated hundreds of user suggestions into each generation of Surpass. Experience the power, yet ease-of-use, of Surpass by exploring this site and requesting a free trial which can be run on a stand-alone computer for up to 60-days.
All key areas and settings in Centriva allow you to specify a location so that district-wide consensus is rarely needed. Set up your circulation rules, settings, reports, and many other areas just the way you want them in your library! Surpass Centriva allows you to make library-specific decisions in key areas...like you're probably already used to.
Whether working with patron, circulation, or material records, Centriva provides a location selector like the one shown below.
Centriva provides local-library choices even beyond the software itself. Only Surpass lets you choose which add-on modules and enhancement services each library wishes to use. Other centralized systems require system-wide choices.
Centriva pricing varies based on factors including the number of libraries and the components licensed. Competitive upgrade discounts are also available. The average Centriva price is around $3,500 per library plus $1,895 per system/district for Centriva Server. Contact us for a quote.
"Surpass is the best!!! I love its stability! I like its ease of use, its speed, and its reliability. It is easy for students (and teachers) to use. I can't tell you how much easier it makes my job to have a wonderful automation system."
