Library Automation + RFID: Innovative and Bibliotheca Announce Alliance
Innovative and Bibliotheca announced today that they have entered into a strategic alliance that will enhance integration of the companies’ products to create value-added offerings to library customers worldwide.
Under the terms of the agreement Innovative will have rights to directly resell Bibiotheca’s RFID systems to Innovative customers around the world, including the Americas, Europe and Australia.
The two companies agreed to work jointly to identify and develop technology initiatives that provide leading-edge connectivity between their respective product lines.
The agreement also allows Innovative to market the Bibliotheca products under the “triple I” brand and establishes a more formal working relationship between the respective companies’ marketing, support and consulting organizations that will eliminate many of the frustrations commonly associated with operating and integrating separate ILS and RFID technologies.
