Innovative Interfaces, Inc. has recently appointed Mr. Ken Chad to represent the company as Sales Consultant for the UK. Ken Chad is a chartered librarian and has a Masters Degree from the Department of Information Science at the City University, London. He is also a Member of the Institute of Information Scientists. Mr. Chad has worked in library automation for over a decade, first as a customer, and then with CLSI and Geac.
Innovative Interfaces has established itself as the premier supplier of library automation systems to academic and research libraries throughout the world. The company's success is built upon a strong foundation of commitment to an excellent product and outstanding dedication to customer satisfaction. It is this commitment to customer service that has prompted the company's growth every year of its existence so that, today, Innovative Interfaces is one of the largest and most successful library automation suppliers worldwide, with over 330 systems installed and operating. Innovative Interfaces has proven its ability to meet the challenges of entering new marketplaces, with numerous installations in Australia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. In Europe, INNOPAC was recently selected by the European University Institute in Florence to replace their existing Geac system. Reflecting on the company's decision to enter the UK, Mr. Robert Walton, Innovative's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer remarked, "Our entry into the UK has been carefully considered and we are determined to be here for the long term."
In the USA, INNOPAC has been selected by academic and research libraries as well as numerous public, law, medical and art libraries to replace systems from such vendors as Dynix, Geac (ADVANCE and GUS) and CLSI. Their reasons for selecting INNOPAC are many, but in all cases the library's decision to choose INNOPAC gave them a modern, flexible and easy-to-use system running on a pure UNIX platform that was designed from the outset by librarians, for librarians.
