Jessica Faust, Marketing and Communications Manager at East Central Regional Library recently commented on the implementation:

From the moment our Aspen Discovery demo call ended, our team couldn't stop talking about all the wonderful things Aspen offered. We jumped into implementation and quickly learned that the implementation team was just as amazing as their product! Everyone was absolutely fantastic to work with. We had so much fun designing the look of our discovery Layer, creating promotional placards, and learning all the ins and outs of the platform. Whenever we had a question, the implementation team was quick to respond. We couldn't have asked for more responsive, knowledgeable, or friendly people to work with. Now that we've launched our discovery layer, the implementation team has reached out to make sure things are going well and to schedule future check-ins. As an organization we have felt supported and valued by the ByWater Solutions team throughout the entire implementation process and now even after our launch."
