Abraquest Unattended Issue/Returns

Unattended Issue/Returns is Nearly Here!

Abraquest has managed for the past 20 years by teacher logging into the system and then leaving the children to scan books to issue or return them. The next release of Abraquest adds optional additional features to allow pupils to issue and return books without teacher being in the room. This release doesn't replace any existing Abraquest functions although it should be faster than the old method and is free to all new and existing Abraquest Software Assurance customers. Please read on for more information.
