“We understand that libraries are struggling with limited budgets at the same time they are looking to benefit from new technologies”, stated Allen Falcon, CEO of Cumulus Global. “We offer libraries options that simplify their IT infrastructure, enhance capabilities, and lower both direct and indirect costs.”
With the CumuluSuite for Libraries Basic package Libraries get the email, calendar, document collaboration, intranet, and video services of Google Apps bundled with unlimited support for their IT team. For libraries required to retain emails under public records laws or policies other packages provide for compliant archiving and e-discovery services, as well as backup services for content in Google Apps and social media sites. Tier 2 end user support is optional with all bundles.
“The options help libraries pick a solution that meets their needs and budget”, added Falcon. “Libraries can select the services they need and deploy them without investing in capital equipment and software. Libraries can also decide if they need the Business or Government editions of Google Apps.”
The window for libraries to apply for fiscal year 2012 E-Rate funding through the Universal Service Administration Company Schools and Libraries program (www.usac.org/sl) opened on January 9th and closes in March. Through the program, libraries may be eligible for discounts and reimbursements of 40% or more.
