Do you want to change the Library Industry by paving the road for more openness and flexibility in the industry?

The FOLIO Implementation Consultant (Data Migration) provides the support client needs as they go live on FOLIO and beyond.

And most importantly, work with clients to ensure that they are using FOLIO to support their workflow as FOLIO evolves.

You will take part in the continuous refinement and scaling of our services.
