LAWRENCEVILLE, GA -- February 2, 2007. Libraries interested in joining the open-source software revolution often face concerns over where to find the technical expertise needed to take advantage of the software products. Equinox Software, Inc. (ESI), based in Lawrenceville, GA, is a newly-created firm dedicated to working with libraries in all aspects of using Evergreen, an enterprise-grade open-source Integrated Library System (ILS).
Evergreen was initially created by the Georgia Public Library Service to support Georgia Library PINES, a consortium of over 250 public libraries. Evergreen was built from the ground up as a flexible, fault-tolerant system capable of supporting libraries of all sizes. Boasting a myriad of standards-compliant methods to access and control data, Evergreen is a robust platform that evolves with the needs of even the most complex library system or consortium.
Brad LaJeunesse, ESI President, says, "We're witnessing a grass-roots revolution in the ILS marketplace-- no longer is the ILS a proprietary black box. Libraries have a real choice now."
ESI's founders include the original Evergreen designers and programmers, and offers a wealth of experience and expertise in Evergreen development, support and integration. From evaluation and testing through migration, deployment and support, Equinox specializes in customized packages designed for the individual needs of every library. Instead of one-size-fits-all support, Equinox works closely with libraries to ensure Evergreen is utilized in a manner that best fits the library's individual needs.
In addition to support, custom development and intergration services, ESI offers complete Evergreen hosting packages for those libraries wishing to outsource their ILS infrastructure needs.
