Tech Logic expands CircIt Software presence in Toronto

White Bear Lake, MN (January 23, 2013) - Tech Logic surpasses a record 500 seats as they continue to deliver contracts for their CircIt Self-Checkout software system in the Toronto Public Library, often called the ‘World's busiest urban public library system.'

President Gary Kirk states, "The Toronto Public Library and Tech Logic have worked together for many years and we are proud of our achievements there, proud of our scalability of CircIt, but most of all, proud that TPL is a key part of the Tech Logic family. The staff at TPL works closely with our team and pushes us to become a better company. It is a partnership that benefits both organizations greatly. We truly appreciate the relationship."

With 98 branches located in and around Toronto and over 32 million items borrowed each year, the Toronto Public Library needed a powerful software system to handle the complexities inherent with their size. Tech Logic says that CircIt's feature-rich flexibility, easy maintenance, and customization options provide the necessary functionality to support a community library network of this magnitude.

"We feel gratified that our relationship with Toronto Public Library has led to such a large-scale SCO project," says Eileen Keehan, VP of Global Business Development. "This level of involvement underscores their belief in our product and as we continue to support additional seats, we clearly deliver on our product's promised scalability."

Library Sales Consultant Bill Payne shares numerous benefits of continuing to grow this large-scale deployment, including patron ease of use due to familiarity with CircIt at other branches, patron anonymity, and service speed, all significant factors within such a large library population. He says that Toronto Public staff has found the system to be so efficient, they have even been using CircIt as they check in materials that have been returned, dubbing it "SCO-Lite."

Bill Payne joined Tech Logic in 2012 as a Sales Consultant with an extensive background in Business Process Automation solutions, Content Management, and eLearning. He consults with libraries in the eastern region of the U.S., including Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Rhode Island and Vermont. Bill's territories also include the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec.

Tech Logic will showcase CircIt along with new products as an exhibitor at ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle, booth#1631, January 25-29, 2013.
