"We've been participating in the OBILLSK program for over a year. Moving beyond traditional tracking methods, this system traces items every step of
the way across a number of shipping services, such as USPS and Fed-Ex. We're thrilled to report that now, when items go missing,
we can detect their location or prove their delivery. We're hopeful that over time we'll be able to save significant amounts of money in lost and overdue book charges."

"OBILLSK gives us one central place to track all our library shipments. It's been especially useful for our in-state courier shipment tracking,
allowing us to quickly scan items in transit totes. The straightforward interface and colorful dashboard make it easy to use -- and fun!"
Cathy Boswell, Library Systems Supervisor, Antioch University
