Innovative Interfaces Inc. will continue selling the Polaris integrated library system (ILS) to new customers and supporting Polaris as a product separate from the company’s Sierra Library Services Platform and Millennium ILS, Innovative CEO Kim Massana told LJ during an interview at the 22nd annual Innovative Users Group (IUG) meeting in Detroit last week. IUG’s more than 1,000 attendees this year included a contingent of dozens of Polaris users, who were greeted with a track of sessions and panels that addressed lingering questions regarding Innovative’s integration plans, updates on the Polaris ILS and the company’s LEAP staff client, and more.
Innovative Interfaces, developer of the Sierra Services Platform, the Millennium ILS, and other library technology solutions, has announced the appointment of Kim Massana as the company’s new chief executive officer. Co-founder, Chairman and CEO Jerry Kline will remain in his role as chairman. Massana was previously president of Thomson Reuters Elite, a division of the global news organization that provides integrated information solutions to professional services firms in the legal, accounting, marketing, management, and IT consulting fields.
