Innovative Interfaces, second ranked company in the industry after SirsiDynix, has delivered its own steady stream of accomplishments so far this year. Recent sales of the Millennium ILS include the Oakland Public Library in California, Texas State University—San Marcos in Texas, Jinan University in China, Bibliothèque Méjanes in France, and the Université François-Rabelais de Tours Information Services also in France.
In addition to purchasing Millennium, Oakland Public Library will join the implementation of INN-Reach of the Link+ consortium. The company recently reported a new INN-Reach sale for a five-library consortium in Ohio to support direct consortium borrowing. Colby College selected Innovative’s Symposia as the basis for its institutional repository. Binghamton University, a member of the State University of New York, selected Innovative’s Electronic Resource Management system.
These accomplishments reflect Innovative’s stature as a strong competitor in the industry.
The company’s Millennium ILS is gaining an increasingly international following. Beyond the ILS, Innovative’s Electronic Resource Management was the first commercial offering in the new ERM arena, which the company continues to lead in sales. INN-Reach continues to prosper as a resourcesharing platform, and Symposia demonstrates the company’s interest in testing the new-product waters, in this case a commercially developed institutional repository that competes with the already established open-source products like DSpace and Fedora.
