s-HERTOGENBOSCH, Netherlands – October 21, 2002 – Geac announced today that Groesbeek Public Library has been using Vubis Smart since October 1, 2002. Preparations started back in the springtime.

Groesbeek Public Library is a new customer for Geac. Their system has not migrated from Vubis Original or Vubis 4 Windows, but from their home-built software called Eline. After visits to libraries in the neighbourhood who also use Vubis, Groesbeek library decided to choose Geac’s Vubis Smart.

Geac delivered all the necessary hardware, software and professional services. On Tuesday October 1 the library went live. The first visitor, whose checkout was registered in the new system, was given a free library-card for the coming year.

De Openbare Bibliotheek Groesbeek heeft sinds dinsdag 1 oktober Vubis Smart in gebruik. De voorbereidingen waren in het voorjaar van start gegaan.

De Openbare Bibliotheek in Groesbeek is voor Geac een nieuwe klant. Zij zijn niet gemigreerd vanuit Vubis Original of Vubis 4 Windows, maar vanuit hun eigen ontwikkeld pakket, genaamd Eline. Na bezoeken aan Vubis-bibliotheken in de buurt van Groesbeek besloot de bibliotheek met Geac in zee te gaan.

Geac heeft zowel de hardware, software als alle bijkomende professional services geleverd. Dinsdag 1 oktober is de bibliotheek ‘live’ gegaan. De bezoeker waarvan de eerste uitleentransactie in Vubis Smart werd geregistreerd werd verrast met een gratis jaarabonnement.
