Bibliotheca RFID Library Systems, the world's leading RFID supplier to libraries, has formed a new joint development company - Bibliotheca Nordic A/S – together with AXIELL bibliotek, which is the leading IT supplier to libraries in the Nordic Region. This move will further promote the introduction of RFID in the Nordic Region.
The unification of two strong suppliers means that Nordic libraries will be able to benefit from the joint expertise that will be applied to the ongoing development of products for libraries, whether it be RFID products, self-service automats or library systems.
Both Bibliotheca RFID Library Systems and AXIELL bibliotek are renowned for the positive dialogue they have with their customers and for the fact that customer requirements are taken into consideration when they develop their products and systems. This tradition will continue and even be strengthened. We will not only comply with standards; we will also adapt the systems to meet the special requirements of the libraries.
Bibliotheca RFID AG, with headquarters in Switzerland, has carried out hundreds of efficient installations all over the world. "This cooperation in the areas of sales and development will put us in a very strong position on the Nordic market. It will also allow us to develop our products in collaboration with the market's leading system supplier to meet the specific needs of the demanding and sophisticated Nordic customer ", explains Marcel Nauer, chairman of the board at Bibliotheca RFID AG.
In order for the RFID solution to function optimally, the integration of RFID technology with the library systems must be made more flexible in a number of areas. "The cooperation will provide us with a unique opportunity to develop our products on the basis of a dialogue with both the customer and the library system supplier and this will benefit libraries greatly" says Henrik S. Jensen, managing director of the new company, Bibliotheca Nordic A/S.
"From AXIELL's point of view, this cooperation will enable us to sell one of the world's strongest brands within our territory. This will ensure that we are able to control the development and maintenance of products and systems so that they match the requirements of our customers, the Nordic libraries ", says Jerk Sintorn, managing director of the Nordic parent company, AXIELL bibliotek AB.
In the future, the new company, Bibliotheca Nordic A/S, will be responsible for the service, support and installation of AXIELL's existing product range of electromagnetic loans, returns and sorting automats.
