Atrium

How do you use Atrium to enhance other ministries.  For instance our shut ins can go on line and order books that our visitation team will deliver.  I am looking for ideas so that we can justify the cost of the program.  For those of you that have had Concourse did you eventually switch over to Atrium?  We are doing a complete remodel so now is the time to bring our library up to speed.  Thank you in advance for your help.See More

"For software, I use Concource from Book Systems.  I have level 3 and it does what I want and is user friendly, I think. Other companies I use are Demco for supplies and Follett to order books. "
