From reporting metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) to patron tagging specifications, Gale Engage fits your public library’s needs and allows you to develop and design goals based on data. Our solution ingests and centralizes library data so you can analyze patron interactions in real time and identify key patterns and behaviors.  This information elevates the value of your data, making your public library system more adaptive to the needs of your diverse communities.

Our CRM system offers a visual display of metrics allowing for faster and more efficient decision-making. Tagging capabilities means you can specifically target a group who will benefit and be interested in your public library programs and services. Imagine library management from a single comprehensive tool and begin engaging with patrons in an impactful way. With accurate data and the ability to engage with your patrons in specific, measurable ways, public libraries can use Gale Engage to be more agile, data driven, and adaptive.

Gale Engage is in beta and will launch fall 2019.
