INWOOD, WV, April 7, 2004 --TLC's print management and PC reservation solutions are installed in over 300 libraries that use CARL.Solution®, the company's integrated automation system.

TLC's LPT:One™ (print management solution) and PCReservation™ are available through TLC's partnership with EnvisionWare, Inc., the leading provider of time and print management solutions.

For Los Angeles Public Library, saving time and funds are the major benefits of LPT:One, according to Steve Newcomer, Director of Information Technologies and Collections: "The use of Envisionware has been welcomed by both staff and public. It has cut down immensely on unwanted prints, resulting in significant savings on paper, toner, and printer maintenance. Because patrons can select, pay for, and pick up their own print jobs, staff intervention is minimal and patrons' privacy is assured."

LPT:One print recovery software prices and scales to any sized institution, allowing libraries to recoup their software investment in as little as three to six months. TLC's PCReservation is a robust solution that provides maximum resource utilization and reduces staff intervention, freeing them to spend more time assisting patrons.

E-commerce functionality – planned for release this month -- will save staff even more time and offer users the convenience they've come to expect from online services. Library patrons will be able to pay for their CARL.Solution fines and fees using cash or credit cards at the over 7,000 CARL.Solution workstations installed with LPT:One.

TLC is focused on creating strategic alliances that offer libraries plug and play products that integrate seamlessly with CARL.Solution. TLC and EnvisionWare share a dedication to soliciting library feedback, and providing modular and flexible solutions that respond to changing library needs.
