Boston--December 8, 1995 -- IME Systems, Inc., a world leader in library automation, has introduced TRACS, an automated document storage and management system. The system was developed by IME in conjunction with the Bank of Scotland.
The TRACS system has three functional areas. The Retrieval Module allows search and retrieval of record data at the box and file level. IME's well known Intelligent Windows feature is used for validation and to minimize data entry.
The Space Management Module automatically selects the most appropriate available space in the warehouse depending on the object type, size, and number of objects. The system prints identifying barcodes for each box or file and is flexible in its handling of the movement of objects within the warehouse or storage space.
The Loans Module controls materials which leave the warehouse temporarily and tracks the movement of items. The system has full retention scheduling capabilities and provides lists of items for disposal with pick lists of locations.
TRACS operates in both MS-DOS and UNIX environments and may be implemented in a LAN, WAN or client/server architecture. IME will be demonstrating TRACs at ALA Midwinter, booth number 1111.
