WMS-What to expect
Comentarios: I really like WMS. I think it is an extremely helpful software which is very popular among librarians. I know for a fact that if the developers further worked on the UI of the software, the users would appreciate it even more than they already do.
Puntos a favor: WorldShare Management Services (WMS) is a cloud-based software which can be customized according to an organization's needs. I came to know about WMS at my school library since I work at the circulation desk. We mostly use WMS to check books in and out. It's a neat little software that is very helpful in keeping track of records and data. Also the fact that there are not many cloud-based library systems that do what WMS does really makes the latter a trailblazer in its own right.
Contras: I don't like the UI design of WMS. The white space takes over most of the page and it feels as if the user is not given much to interact with. It may be too set in its ways which can work against the software at times. I wish the developers work on softening the features of the software and making it more user-friendly in general.

Reliable OCLC product
Puntos a favor: WMS has great integration with other OCLC products, as one might expect. There could be more interfacing between Circulation and Tipasa modules, but overall, it's a very reliable circulation system that can handle all the stages of an item's lifecycle from acquisition and cataloging to weeding.
Contras: The interface can take some getting used to, as it's rather bare-bones. Finding the right menu option is very intuitive, though, since everything is broken down by category: Metadata, Acquisitions, Cataloging, Interlibrary Loan, Analytics, and Admin.
