Vubis Smart Draws Praise at the Swiss Library for the Blind

BRUSSELS, Belgium, November 4, 2007. Vubis Smart, Infor's integrated library system, has drawn praise from staff and patrons alike at the Swiss Library for the Blind (SBS) for optimally serving the visually impaired through unique functionality. Vubis Smart, which has been live at the library since June 2007, incorporates special features for circulation, serials management and cataloguing. The system includes an application to lend Braille publications and/or Daisy-Roms through a fully automated procedure, which requires no staff intervention, as well as other custom-built solutions. Through various specially created APIs, Vubis Smart also communicates seamlessly with other applications in the library.

Chris Kluiters, Country Manager Infor Libraries Division Netherlands, said: "We are very happy with the extremely positive feedback from SBS. Our consultants and developers have gained a lot of knowledge and experience in building and maintaining software for libraries serving visually impaired users - particularly in respect to the specific custom-built solutions that these users require. We aim to develop this knowledge further in the future with new solutions, for example for customers who work a lot with audio books".
