Baratz acquired by Total Specific Solutions

Smart Libraries Newsletter [September 2021]


Madrid-based Baratz was acquired by Total Specific Solutions, another CSI operating company, in June 2021. Baratz was founded in 1987 by Juan Beitia to develop and commercialize online database systems. The company's AbsysNet integrated library system has been implemented by most public libraries in Spain and has a presence in other European countries and in Latin America. Juan Repiso, the general manager for Baratz, continues to lead the company following its acquisition by TCS. Prior to the acquisition, Baratz spun off its other products for archives and document centers into a new company, Albalá Gestión Documental.
