Abstract: EnvisionWare announced that New Orleans Public Library selected EnvisionWare as their RFID provider. The RFID implementation is an expansion of their existing EnvisionWare services, which include EnvisionWare's computer and print management solutions, PC Reservation, and LPT:One. The RFID project is part of an overall rebuilding effort for the library. Two-thirds of the branches were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and many are in the final stages of construction. The installation includes RFID gates, EnvisionWare Branch Manager, and EnvisionWare's OneStop self-checkout system.


Atlanta, GA, January 30, 2012 EnvisionWare, a leading provider of self-service and library-efficiency solutions, announced today that New Orleans Public Library selected EnvisionWare as their RFID provider. The RFID implementation is an expansion of their existing EnvisionWare services, which include EnvisionWare's computer and print management solutions, PC Reservation, and LPT:One.

The RFID project is part of an overall rebuilding effort for the library. Two-thirds of the branches were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and many are in the final stages of construction. The installation includes RFID gates, EnvisionWare Branch Manager, and EnvisionWare's OneStop self-checkout system.

"With many technology improvements and projects underway, partnering with a vendor who we've built a solid relationship with to consolidate services, made sense and offered us a seamless solution," said Kim Tran, Director of Initiatives and Strategies. "After conducting a thorough review of the RFID solutions on the market, we are confident that EnvisionWare is the right choice for New Orleans. The products and customer support are both outstanding."

"Since Katrina, the staff and patrons of New Orleans Public Library have persevered through insurmountable hardships and obstacles," said EnvisionWare CEO Mike Monk. "We are honored to be a part of their rebuilding efforts as a technology partner for both RFID and computer and print management."
