Woburn, MA - Inmagic, Inc., a leading supplier of information management and library automation solutions, announced that Gilead Sciences, Inc. a California-based biopharmaceutical company, selected BiblioTech PRO to assist in the development of its integrated information system. The database will track proprietary information and a range of other publications and journals.

"BiblioTech PRO is a powerful, easily maintained and highly customizable library automation solution running on Progress software's industry-standard RDBMS backbone," said Phillip Green, President and CEO of Inmagic. "BiblioTech PRO will provide Gilead with the added capacity to tackle a range of vital business needs and provide the reporting capability to meet its regulatory obligations."

After evaluating five library systems based on their functionality, technical specifications and cost, the Gilead Information Resources team selected BiblioTech PRO. Serials management, authority control and the Intranet-enabled module are key functional areas of strength that differentiated Bibliotech Pro from its competition.

BilbioTech PRO's stable operating environment and highly integrated operations make it particularly suitable for environments demanding stringent document tracking and reporting over a large document base.

"We were very excited to be Gilead's first choice," said Lynda Moulton, Director of Integrated Library Systems at Inmagic. "But this is only the beginning - we're looking forward to meeting the ongoing challenge of supporting a highly dynamic and successful organization like Gilead."

The mission of the Gilead Information Resources team is to facilitate good business practice. Providing employees with the ability to access information, quickly and specifically, boosts productivity and the bottom line. Gilead will use BiblioTech PRO to manage information resources across Gilead offices, from California to Colorado and beyond.

"Employees are very enthusiastic about the potential of BiblioTech PRO to facilitate their work," said Liz Perry, Associate Director of Information Resources at Gilead Sciences. "We have found the system to be 'user-friendly' enough such that people are able to answer questions right at their desktop that used to require assistance from my group. In addition, we're bundling information into one place by providing links to company subscribed to Web sites; further simplifying the process for the end user."
