Capira Technologies is committed to bridging the gap between libraries and providing the best patron service possible in an always-on and mobile world. Libraries need much more than an online presence to efficiently serve their patrons today. Capira's goal is to make library service personal again with Capira's mobile and i-Beacon library solutions, suitable for Apple iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and Nook devices.
Capira's customized mobile apps personalize your library for an optimal patron experience, including state-of-the-art functionality and services, such as digital library cards, self-checkout, remote renewal capabilities, and much more! There is also a lower-cost Express mobile app available.
CapiraConnect is Capira's iBeacon product for libraries. Small battery-powered Bluetooth proximity sensors placed throughout your library building, combined with the CapiraConnect mobile app installed on iOS or Android devices, allows you interact with your patrons on a whole new level. Your patrons will receive push notifications to their mobile device, including account, event, shelving and contextual information as they move about the building with their mobile device.

"We could see that mobile was where our customers were expecting to find us so we were very early adopters of a competing mobile library app. Over time, with no substantive development, the product became stale and the company unresponsive. We felt their product was beginning to make us look outdated and behind. Having to update our files with a weekly FTP was also getting old.
That’s how we came to work with Capira and we have not once looked back. Capira has been a delight to work with because they don’t treat us like 'customers'; they treat us like partners. From the start, they collaborated with us to create the perfect mobile app for our users. They’re always open to refinements and new ideas. Working with them on building iBeacons into the mix has been a treat. We are so eager to promote new ways to personalize the user experience. Bottom line: they make us look great!"
