OREM (UT) / SYDNEY (AUST) / DERBYSHIRE (UK), March 16, 2012 -- Altarama Information Systems and Soutron Limited announced the signing of an agreement today that enables Soutron to offer Altarama's family of reference management solutions to its customer base of law firms and special libraries.
"Soutron is the ideal distribution partner for us," said Arthur Brady, Altarama's CEO, "with a strong presence in the UK and throughout Europe, and with an extraordinary reputation among its clients."
Soutron's Managing Director, Graham Beastall, said: "Having developed enquiry management systems in the past, we recognised the comprehensiveness and unique flexibility of RefTracker right away, and we know that our clients will as well. Its features supporting libraries spread across global organisations are especially attractive for our Soutron Integrated Library Management Systems clients."
"We also share a common development platform, making integration and support tasks a natural fit," said Shirley Forster, Altarama's founder and chief architect.
Soutron will introduce RefTracker Request Management to its client base of legal and special libraries in the coming months, and will work closely with Altarama development staff to identify potential integration points among the product families.
