Melbourne 5 November 2015: Civica Library Solutions, a market leader in specialist software and outsourcing that help organisations to transform the way they work, announced a partnership with Australian based RFID supplier, FE Technologies, to bring new levels of RFID and LMS integration to customers.

Civica and FE Technologies, both with development headquarters in Victoria, Australia, and exporting their solutions to the world, have partnered to extend and improve their product offering for libraries in several ways, including improved features for the Librarian Rover mobile application for anywhere library services, and a Circulation Assistant that plugs directly into Spydus enabling the full features of Spydus10 to be recognised.

"Our partnership with FE Technologies means that we can help to deliver the best possible service to both library staff and end-users," said Marc Nolan, Managing Director of Library Solutions. "Library staff now have the option to use the Spydus10 circulation client with FE's RFID solution, thereby using both solutions to their fullest and best. We look forward to a continued relationship with FE Technologies."

"FE Technologies is excited to be working with progressive Library Management Systems providers such as Civica, whose open approach to RFID integration is allowing libraries to reap benefits of improved products and system features," said Pat O'Connor, Managing Director of FE Technologies. "The partnership with Civica will allow libraries to use enhanced features of the Spydus LMS in conjunction with innovations in the FE Technologies range of RFID products to deliver huge gains in productivity and efficiency, and to deliver an outstanding patron experience."

Libraries wishing to know more about Civica's integration with FE Technologies should contact their local Civica or FE Technologies representative.
