Accessit Software | Increasing literacy by making it easy for students to find, engage and read books and resources.

Accessit Software is a leading global school technology business that has its roots in School Libraries with our flagship product – Accessit Library. Founded in New Zealand 20 years ago, Accessit is now a leader in their market and loved by customers in more than 55 countries. Headquartered in Wellington Accessit has more than 60 staff across six countries.

 “Accessit exists to increase literacy by making it easy for students to find, engage and read books and resources, and to help educators do what they love rather than be stuck doing admin.’’ says General Manager & Director Natalie Screen

‘’Last year we became part of the Follett School Solutions business and it’s exciting to now have the opportunity to solve wider school problems from fundraising and online school shop fronts to student administration, and resource management of devices and sports equipment.’’

Along with multiple new feature releases, growing the team and entering new markets, Accessit have just completed 16 roadshow events across the UK and Australia. ‘’Roadshows are a fantastic opportunity to bring our customers, partners, and the wider community together for a day of training, learning and inspiration. Feedback so far from our team and customers has been awesome and we’re looking forward to wrapping up 13 events across New Zealand this August.’’

Partnerships are also hugely important to Accessit and connecting with others in the education space. Providers like the team at ePlatform and SCIS to other software providers that Accessit integrates with like Hero. As such Accessit would love to invite any NZ businesses in their space to reach out, connect and share ideas and knowledge! Email: 

‘’We’re also growing in the international school space, building connections throughout the world, and seeing that we’re a real solution for schools that are passionate about improving literacy and linking the library with the whole school. ‘’

Investment in school libraries is hugely varied globally. Some like New Zealand are seeing staff cuts or turning libraries into classrooms, others like Ireland are pushing hard into investing in the library and literacy. “This is challenging as we know the very real downstream impact this has on student literacy and their long-term outcomes and success. ‘’

On the flip side, Accessit fits in perfectly as a solution to help non-librarians who are working in the unofficial “librarian” roles to manage the library quickly with only limited hours.  

“Accessit is powerful enough for qualified librarians, who LOVE getting in to the bitty gritty, to do what they do best and get their schools engaged with the library and smart research.’’

Ka rawe team Accessit, we love your work!
