He  stated that Adeniyi explained that the major advantage of the software was that it provided an easy to use identification system that helped the security unit to monitor  the activities that would  go on in the library.

 According to him,  the TouchNut provides an intranet server that contains students’ information and it comes with an intranet connection.

He said that the software application server was also well secured.

” Adeniyi pointed out that with the TouchNut app, students  can   borrow books and members of staff of the library will  not need to worry about their return on their respective expiration dates because the software will track down student’s card and notify the staff.

“ Second is the circulation unit because it helps create user profiles for students, develop and assign cards as well.

“ And lastly is the Management Unit because the management  has complete oversight of everything that happens in the library.”

He said  the application would be deployed to other areas of activities on the campus.

“After the test run, steps will be taken for the deployment of the software in other relevant areas including campus shuttle transportation.
