13 April, 2015: Civica, a leader in specialist systems and business process services that help organisations to transform the way they work, has announced the release of Spydus10, the company's Web-based integrated library management, discovery, digital asset management and archives solution.
Unveiled during Civica's annual Technology Roadshow in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland and Perth this week, Spydus10 heralds an exciting new phase for the market-leading Spydus integrated library management solution. "This is a significant development for Spydus", said Kevindran Jeyakanthan, Civica Library Solutions' Head of Product. "Spydus10 incorporates the very latest in Web-based user interface design. Importantly it keeps all of the richness in functionality from Spydus' 30-year heritage while providing the foundation for digital transformation in the library sector. With the first release of Spydus10 complete, we are now focusing on integrating customer enhancements, and further integration with our Event Management solution and third party content providers."
Marc Nolan, Managing Director, said: "Civica has been a market leader in library systems for schools, higher education institutions and public authorities for many years and it is important for both the company and our customers that we remain at the cutting-edge of technology. Furthermore, because we are library operators ourselves we understand the myriad pressures that libraries face on a daily basis. Spydus10 as cloud-based solution will help remove the technology burden for libraries so they can focus on maintaining and improving patron services."
The first library to go live with Spydus10 will be Civica's fully managed Sports Hub Library in Singapore.
The Civica and Partners Annual Technology Roadshow begins April 13 in Melbourne and travels to Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland and Perth. In addition to the Spydus10 launch, Civca is proud to present keynote speakers Kari Lämsä from the Helsinki City Library, and Michael Byrne from the City of Maribyrnong, Melbourne. Partners include FE Technologies, EBSCO, and ALS Library Services.
