In determining our pricing, a key objective is to keep the basic cost of ownership as low as possible by not charging clients for services which they may not require.

If you are migrating an existing catalogue, Koha can import from MARC format records or other sources, such as a a spreadsheet or a tagged export file. You are welcome to undertake this task yourself, bearing in mind that a certain amount of data cleaning and remapping of fields is necessary to ensure a good result. Alternatively, you can commission us to do the data conversion.  We will use our tools and experience to merge different data sources and avoid issues such as duplication of bibliographic items in the catalogue. Migration of your existing patrons data is a similar story but less complicated than migrating the catalogue.

When our clients require a new feature we will often implement it without charge if it is of general interest to the community and not an inordinate amount of work.
