VTLS develops interface to work with Unique Management

Blacksburg, VA – VTLS Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of an interface between the Virtua – Integrated Library System and Unique Management Services, Inc. Unique Management is the leading material recovery service for libraries in North America.

The interface, provided through the Virtua InfoStation module allows libraries to communicate with Unique Management, providing information on delinquent patron accounts. This information is used by Unique Management to collect overdue materials and monies through a gentle, yet effective approach, that yields results.

The interface includes both the ability to generate and transmit the initial delinquent patron account information as well as a synchronization feature to make sure that patron account information is always updated. Once the initial interface setup is complete, Virtua InfoStation provides the capability for the synchronization routine to be scheduled and automatically transmitted to Unique Management based upon a library-defined time period.

“Of the companies providing collection agency services, Unique Management is clearly the company that more and more libraries are choosing to help them in their recovery efforts. We are pleased to make this service readily available to our customers.,” said Carl Grant, President of VTLS Inc.
