(Carlsbad, CA - August 26, 2003) Market leader EOS International announces the immediate global availability of EOS.Web, a robust, proven Web-based system that leverages the knowledge-base EOS has acquired from being a leading library automation vendor for over two decades. EOS.Web is available as a local, in-house solution or as a hosted solution in conjunction with the EOS e-Library Service.
EOS.Web is a modular, scalable, customizable library knowledge management solution which employs the latest .NET technologies from Microsoft and "Best-of-Breed" natural language, multi-lingual search technology, RetrievalWare from Convera. When combined with EOS' expert library automation knowledge-base, these state-of-the-art technologies harness the power of the Internet for special libraries, helping to create information portals, making it easier than ever before to access, edit, share, and deliver information.
EOS.Web value-added modules EOS.Web Indexer and EOS.Web KnowledgeBuilder uniquely provide greater access to not only your library's structured bibliographic collection, but also to local and remote stores of proprietary unstructured information, such as Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, press releases, or legal monographs stored as PDF documents. Over 437 different file formats are supported. Knowledge workers now have access to background and context on key information that they might otherwise not have known was available.
"One of the most exciting promises of the Internet for special libraries is the opportunity to provide patrons access to information whenever and wherever they need," states Tony Saadat, CEO of EOS International. "This new generation of library automation technology is based on the concept of web services which will enable libraries to securely work beyond the local area network."
For more than 20 years, EOS has teamed with clients to help them protect their investments, grow their ideas, and reach new heights. EOS.Web solutions extend that commitment, providing the critical building blocks needed to ensure the successful transfer of information and knowledge to create Internet-centric libraries worldwide.
