Atlanta, GA, September 13, 2011 – EnvisionWare, a leading provider of self-service and library-efficiency solutions, announced today that King County Library System (KCLS) in Washington State selected EnvisionWare's computer and print management solutions, PC Reservation and LPT:One.

KCLS, voted Library of the Year 2011 by Library Journal and Cengage, is the highest circulating public Library System in the United States. The System circulated over 22.4 million items in 2010. During the past few years, KCLS has focused on developing innovative ways to deliver services and programs, including a strong emphasis on technology, as demonstrated by their noted migration to an open source integrated library system (ILS).

"PC and Print Reservation is one of the most impactful and visible systems to our library patrons," said Jed Moffitt, director of information technology services. "With so many technology initiatives on our plate, we needed an established, reliable, and mature system with a team we could count on. EnvisionWare has an outstanding reputation for customer service and dependability. Their system is also flexible enough to handle our unique technology needs, including our open source ILS."

EnvisionWare will serve KCLS as gatekeeper to its one thousand public workstations and laptops in forty-six public libraries.

"King County is a recognized leader around the globe, particularly when it comes to technology and innovation," said EnvisionWare Vice President Mike Monk. "We are thrilled they have selected EnvisionWare as a technology partner, and look forward to meeting the PC and print needs of over 1.3 million residents of King County."
