Birmingham, England—epixtech, the world's largest supplier of automated library systems, will be launching a new concept in system delivery into the European marketplace at this year's Library Information Show (National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, England 5-7th June) revolutionising concepts of system ownership , service, support and delivery. The launch stands alongside the introduction of epixtech's Horizon Sunrise Library Management System to the region.

epixtech will be the first supplier to offer European customers Library software via Application Service Provider (ASP) delivery. However, the company is the North American leader in ASP delivery, with more installed systems than any other automation vendor. Initially offering its Horizon Sunrise library management system via ASP, epixtech hopes to deliver further applications and packaged services to customers who select this mode of delivery and system management. epixtech believes this new application delivery mechanism will transform the choices available to librarians, using the full power of the Internet to deliver products and change the customer-supplier relationship redefining traditional concepts of library technology ownership. The ASP service is supported by a proven expertise in the support of managed library technology and tailored range of epixtech service assurance formulas.

This really is a phenomenal advance for the library sector.”
