(Carlsbad, CA - September 8, 2004) Market leader EOS International announces that the law firm of Porter Wright Morris and Arthur LLP has upgraded to EOS.Web from EOS GLAS(r), and will continue to use the ASP-hosted option offered for EOS.Web at the EOS e-Library Service Global Data Center.
Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP, established in 1846, has more than 280 lawyers located in six offices in Ohio, Florida and Washington, D.C. providing responsive, top-quality legal work. As a legal firm committed to the future, Porter Wright has taken advantage of Web-based library automation to help them reach their business objectives.
"The best thing about EOS software has been the EOS e-Library Service," says Susan Schaefgen, Library Manager for Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP. "Support is so much easier now that EOS hosts our data, our upgrades are applied immediately, and my IS staff is thrilled."
"EOS e-Library Service provides the highest level of protection for library data," states Tony Saadat, CEO of EOS International. "Gaining the confidence of prestigious law firms such as Porter Wright is confirmation of our clients' trust in EOS International."
With every EOS e-Library Service installation, proprietary library data (user records, catalog, vendor, serial information, etc.) is hosted at the EOS Global Data Center. The data remains the property of the library and can be obtained at any point in time via data exports, optional FTP database downloads, or MARC extracts. Daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual back-ups for EOS e-Library Service members are performed for the hosted libraries, reducing their software maintenance tasks and helping to simplify library operations.

A client-driven company nominated for a Computerworld Smithsonian >award, EOS library automation software products (EOS.Web Express, EOS.Web Enterprise, EOS Q-Series, EOS GLAS, and hosted, EOS e-Library Services) serve the stringent knowledge and content management needs of corporate, legal, medical, government and special libraries of all sizes.
