Abstract: Endeavor Information Systems announced multiple initiatives for 2001, including doubling the size its development staff.

DES PLAINES, ILLINOIS, Dec. 28, 2000: Endeavor Information Systems announced today multiple initiatives for 2001, including doubling the size its development staff.

The increase in staff will enable Endeavor to continue its success with the Voyager integrated library management system and the ENCompass digital collection management system. The workforce expansion allows Endeavor to continue new initiatives that set the pace for the library technology marketplace.

"This growth is prompted by the ever changing needs of our customers, the availability of new technology, and largely, by the strong support Endeavor has found with our new partner, Elsevier Science," explained Jane Burke, Endeavor's President and CEO.

"We believe strongly in the technological talent in Chicago. It is unfortunate that the Chicagoland technology marketplace experienced so many ups and downs in 2000," Burke continued. "There are several good companies no longer in business, but Endeavor is proving to truly be a worldwide technology leader in our industry. We have built on a tradition of experience, technological savvy and leadership, and had the opportunity in 2000 to find a partner that believes in our new technologies and understands we require an expansion in our talented staff to complete our goals."

Endeavor Information Systems announced in April 2000 an alliance with Elsevier Science, a division of worldwide publishing giant Reed Elsevier. The sale of Endeavor to Elsevier Science uniquely positions both companies to broaden the delivery of electronic content throughout the academic and research library marketplace.

Endeavor's development focus is for the Windows-based multi-tiered client server-based Voyager system and the XML and XSL ENCompass system, both coded in C++, Visual Basic and applying Oracle, Unix and SQL technologies.
