Lund, Sweden, March 10 2021 – Axiell, the leading supplier of software to the cultural sector, today announces a strategic partnership with Adimeo, a tech and consulting company based in France. The partnership grants Adimeo exclusive distribution rights to bring Axiell's Quria product, a library services platform designed for the modern public library, to French-speaking European markets.
Quria is designed for the modern public library and the solution is developed leveraging Axiell's 30 years of experience servicing customers across Europe. Axiell's strong European position and large customer community connect customers across borders for the benefit of sharing expertise, best practices and influencing the future development of the platform. The solution is currently used by libraries in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Czech Republic and Norway.
'"We are thrilled to have established a strategic partnership with Adimeo to bring the Quria platform to the public libraries in France and French-speaking markets", says Joel Sommerfeldt, President & CEO Axiell Group. "The solution will benefit any Public Library that wants to use a modern Library Service Platform to improve the user experience and access to their (digital) content."
A modern library must do more than manage books to be relevant to its patrons. It needs a communication platform and full support for digital processes, which Quria provides for a library that wants to evolve its services.
With Quria and Quria Discover, physical and digital collections, e-media services, library events, patron communications, and more can live together in one system. Quria makes daily work more efficient, leaving librarians more time to promote reading and learning, support information seekers, and create a welcoming space for patrons. Library staff can access the cloud-based platform from any device and manage every aspect of the library from the same solution.
Quria Discover offers a modern web presence under the library's brand, a powerful search engine that combs all website content and library assets at once, and user-generated ratings and written reviews to help patrons find the content they'll enjoy.
The partnership between Axiell and Adimeo will combine the power of the Quria platform with Adimeo's expertise in supporting organizations in their digital transformation, especially in digital change management.
"We are excited to open a new chapter in Adimeo's development with a partnership that will create strong digital opportunities for Adimeo's customers", says Marine Soroko, General Manager of Adimeo.
Adimeo has been working in the cultural sector for 15 years and has successfully launched essential projects for several large libraries, such as the Plaine commune, Ville de Grenoble and the Département de la Gironde. This partnership will be instrumental in meeting the sector's rapidly growing demand for digitization and digital transformation.
