Lucidea’s Evergreen Program

Your Upgrade Path for Continuity of Value

Our ILS, KM and Collections Management products are built to stand the test of time. We know that as a DB/TextWorks, SydneyPLUS, Genie, Cuadra, or Eloquent user, you love your system—and in many cases you’ve felt that way about it for several years.

With new technologies and techniques, we’ve built a portfolio of even more powerful solutions. In order to ensure that all our valued clients benefit from these new products, we have introduced the Evergreen program—an upgrade program designed to enable clients to leverage the value of their investments and migrate to our newest, most innovative solutions.

Our Evergreen program delivers an upgrade path that allows users of our classic Library, Archives, KM and Museum products to retain the value of their investment and take advantage of the power, features, benefits and innovations of our latest solutions, including:

  • SydneyEnterprise
  • GeniePlus
  • Inmagic Presto
  • PrestoWorks
  • ArchivEra
  • Argus

Evergreen Program Benefits:

  • Inclusive, available to all customers (all types, sizes and budgets)
    • Archives
    • Knowledge Centers
    • Museums
    • Special Libraries
  • Continually addresses changing requirements (e.g., functional, security or growth)
  • Ensures compatibility with the latest browsers, operating systems, and mobile devices
  • Available at similar cost (e.g. current maintenance or subscription fee)
  • Leverages the flexibility of our Essentia program as appropriate

Our Evergreen program allows us to provide our global clients, large, small, or somewhere-in-between, with the most advanced ILS, KM, and Collections Management applications available. Choosing an Evergreen upgrade path ensures access to the most current and advanced features, user interface, security, and functionality—and allows you to proactively manage technology compatibility and avoid situations requiring expensive emergency upgrades.

If you’re a current DB/TextWorks, Genie, SydneyPLUS, Cuadra, or Eloquent user and would like to take advantage of the features, capabilities, performance and security of our most current solutions, our Evergreen program may be right for you. Please contact us and we’ll be delighted to explore your upgrade options.

“We now feel a lot safer about the intellectual control of our collections.”

“We can get really nuanced with our searches, which for an archivist is really great.”

“The public portal is clearly effective for the average user; people are asking for specific items instead of asking for broad research. ArchivEra has focused things—and has probably brought in researchers who wouldn’t have thought of us before.”


“We recommend Argus because it’s customizable, Web-based, and has a knowledgeable support team – the people behind the system have been fantastic; it’s a relationship.”

“Argus has definitely assisted with workflow—it’s a single venue for input on the back-end, and public expression on the front end.”

“Argus has taken everything we do to another level. Whether that is creating a new display, locating items, consistency of organization and standards, to how we work with the collection. It offers accessibility for staff as well as the public and is a great success.”


“Two of our volunteers work from home, so the remote working ability in GeniePlus benefits the staff. Easy uploading and rapid data entry is the best thing since sliced bread. Everybody who uses it loves it.”

“Advancing accessibility is an important reason to embrace this kind of technology. Our GeniePlus catalog records can now be accessed anywhere in the world.”

“GeniePlus has given us both intellectual control and discoverability.”


“Presto offers the best of both worlds—it’s off the shelf but with the ability to configure. You shouldn’t have to warp your content to support a system; with Presto you don’t have to compromise. It offers flexibility that supports the weird quirks of our data.”

“Presto’s presentation layer is very professional and slick. Finding content across the multisite organization even on an iPhone is great.”

“Presto’s full text search functionality has been a game changer.”


“The acquisitions module allows us to better manage the steps involved in purchasing. In fact there are fewer steps in all ILS operational work, resulting in greater efficiency.”

“We appreciate the ease of navigation within SydneyEnterprise, and each module offers flexibility. Customer service is outstanding.”

“SydneyEnterprise centralizes everything in one place. It is also user-friendly; both staff and end users find it very easy to work with.”
