(Carlsbad, CA -- January 26, 2005) Market leader EOS International announces that global subscriptions for its ASP-hosted EOS e-Library Service more than doubled in 2004 as more and more special libraries recognize the operational and cost-saving benefits of using the industry's most trusted ILS ASP-hosting service.
The EOS Global Data Center, managed by a team of experts 24/7/365, is utilized worldwide from the US to Japan to Europe by such prestigious organizations as the World Trade Organization, Freddie Mac, Milbank, Tweed, Hadely & McCloy LLP, Morrison & Foerster LLP, United States Postal Service, Comptroller of the Currency, California Energy Commission, Kaiser Permanente, American Academy of Pediatrics, and Carolinas Health Care System, to name just a few of the organizations who have recently recognized the value of the service. Subscribers significantly reduce costs because they pay only one flat, price protected annual user fee, eliminating the need for up-front capital expenses and local IT support.
"We were the first library automation vendor to recognize the need for a global ASP-hosted ILS solution and we remain committed to offering our clients the broadest range and highest quality of services possible," states Tony Saadat, CEO of EOS International.
Launched in 2003, the EOS Global Data Center provides a competitive edge to special libraries as they strive to improve service to end users by providing streamlined operations, improved reliability, reduced costs and trusted IT support. Library data, which is owned by each subscriber, is accessed via a web browser over a secure Internet connection as readily as if the data were stored locally. Business continuity and security is ensured due to an integrated firewall and built-in disaster recovery system that includes a back-up power generator.

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