Announcement of Agreement between InfoVision Technology and Altarama Systems

Press Release: InfoVision Technology [April 20, 2001]

Altarama Systems Pty Ltd and InfoVision Technology Pty Ltd have concluded an agreement for InfoVision to provide continuing support for the library software products supplied by Altarama to their customers.

It also provides for a wider range of products to be offered to Altarama's customers through InfoVision's CiVision and AUSinfo products, and for Altarama's ZGateway, Kinetica upload and Reference tracking products to be offered to a wider range of customers.

The agreement also includes offering all Altarama customers a migration path to InfoVision's Windows compliant Amlib system, a state of the art, but proven and robust library management system installed in over 200 libraries within Australia and a further 50 libraries in overseas countriesusing the latest Windows based client server technology. Amlib is totally "made in Australia". All programs are designed, developed and maintained in Australia, including any software enhancements.

Most importantly, this new arrangement ensures that current support services and product knowledge will continue to be available to Altarama's customers.

The continued support arrangement will be made available to all existing Altarama Data*Library and VTLS customers. Altarama customers who have recently upgraded from VTLS to Virtua will be offered special consideration and priority in migrating to Amlib.

We are currently in the process of arranging user group meetings as well as individual user meetings where you will be able to meet with management from both companies to have any issues arising from this new arrangement addressed, and to review the opportunities that it creates. We look forward to meeting with you.
