Abstract: EOS International announces that NICOR Gas of Illinois has upgraded to EOS.Web Express from EOS GLAS.

(Carlsbad, CA – July 27, 2005) Market leader EOS International announces that NICOR Gas of Illinois has upgraded to EOS.Web Express. NICOR Gas is one of the largest natural gas distribution companies in the country, serving more than two million customers in 641 communities. NICOR Gas had previously used EOS GLAS.

NICOR is already seeing the benefits of EOS.Web's anytime, anywhere accessibility. EOS.Web will allow NICOR users to easily search and explore library collections from their intranet. Staff modules in EOS.Web are integrated, making staff functions easier to perform than ever. “EOS.Web is a lot easier to use and faster than GLAS,” states Patricia McCarthy, Corporate Librarian for NICOR Gas.

The transition to EOS.Web is easy from any system. Suzanne Krebsbach, Corporate Librarian at Santee Cooper has also undergone the migration process to EOS.Web and had a very smooth experience, “I would definitely recommend the transition. Even IT thought it was insanely easy. It was as easy a project as you could ever want.” Each library that goes through the EOS migration process is assigned a dedicated member of the EOS implementation team. The implementation expert helps to guide new users through each step of the process, ensuring the migration goes as planned.

“I moved to EOS.Web as a beta user because I had a long standing relationship with the company,” states Marlene Vogelsang, Resource Specialist for the Pacific Energy Center. “As a solo librarian, I need to do it all, and EOS helps me do it better.”

EOS.Web can be installed as a local, in-house, Web-based solution running on a local network server, or hosted at the EOS e-Library Service global data center, enabling libraries to significantly reduce costs and improve operations.
