"We are extremely excited by the opportunity to offer iTeam's extensive line of products directly through Dynix, the leading providing of library management systems," said iTeam Resources President Megan Newell. "The synergies created between our two companies will bring to market products and service unparalleled in the industry."
"One of the main reasons I chose iTeam was the good word-of-mouth comments I heard from other library system administrators from across the country, and I found iTeam to be responsive and knowledgeable," said Jim Rosaschi, System Administrator for Sonoma Country Library (Santa Rosa, CA), a Dynix customer since 1989. "When it came time to make a decision, and after we got the required price quotes, it was a pleasure to be able to select iTeam."
"When we began to offer public PCs with Internet access and multiple applications in our seven branches, it became very clear that a printing solution was needed to reduce the printing of unnecessary pages and the number of 'mistakes' made by our users," said Eileen Kontrovitz, Director of Ouachita Parish Public Library (Monroe, LA), a Dynix library since 1987. "Our pay-for-print vendor of choice was iTeam. We are extremely happy with the software, hardware, and support we've received."
On average, libraries using pay-for-print services from iTeam save 60 percent of current costs for patron printing. In addition to receiving remarkable cost savings, libraries that implement iTeam's range of cost recovery solutions free up staff time, allowing librarians to spend increased one-on-one time meeting users' needs.
