Sagebrush Corporation has announced the launch of two data management modules to make understanding library data easier at the school and district level - Sagebrush InfoCentre District Reports Manager and Sagebrush InfoCentre Patron Manager. These two modules allow for ease of use and better district accountability, according to the announcement.

District Reports Manager allows administrators to access data for all of the district's libraries to create detailed reports on circulation, collection, and patrons. These reports allow administrators to analyze the district's libraries and their contributions to student achievement, identifying strengths and weaknesses for future planning.

The District Reports Manager creates consolidated reports in accordance with state requirements as part of overall accountability. The system offers graphic charts and reports, as well as drill down capabilities with the ability to analyze sub-groups.

Patron Manager provides seamless synchronization of student information system data with patron information in the library management system InfoCentre for more efficient management of the entire library system. The software consolidates SIS data at the student level and automatically sends the relevant patron information to the library automation software. The module is available on industry standard .NET and SQL platforms ensuring reliability and support.

District Report Manager and Patron Manager are available in one-year subscriptions, $1,595 for District Report Manager and $2,495 for Patron Manager. The two products are also bundled for $3,495.
