Read why Fernhill School switched to
KnowAll Matrix to manage their
secondary school library in Hampshire ...

“I liked the simplicity of the system and the reasonable pricing structure, but also the clear links to reviews.”


“Bailey Solutions staff have always been very open to feedback and available to offer guidance.”

What problems were you having that prompted you to change library system?

I had become frustrated by the unreliability of the Library Management System I was using.

The LMS regularly crashed and lost data. Issuing books was incredibly slow and impossible to manage during busy timetabled lessons. I would end up writing down information to record later. This was of course un- workable!

Why did you choose KnowAll Matrix?

I first heard about Bailey Solutions and SLLS at a Hampshire School Library Service event. I knew that I needed to make a change, but with a tight school budget wanted a system that works and did not pressure my book budget too much. I was introduced to KnowAll Matrix early in 2021.

I was given plenty of time and opportunity to explore the LMS and provide feedback. Bailey Solutions staff have always been very open to feedback and available to offer guidance.

How has KnowAll Matrix helped you in your job?

It is so reliable! I know that if the bell is going to go for the next lesson in 10 minutes time, I will be able to issue books in time!

What would you say to someone considering subscribing to a software product from Bailey Solutions?

Please do give Bailey Solutions your attention; their customer service is excellent. They respond quickly and listen to suggestions for future development.
