Helsinki City Library introduces the Lyngsoe Systems IMMS – the Machine Learning-Based Intelligent Material Management System™

Lyngsoe Systems is pleased to announce that on the 15th of May 2019 the Intelligent Material Management System™ went live across all the 37 branches of the Helsinki City Library. The Helsinki City libraries count the beautiful Oodi library in central Helsinki, a truly modern library space with room for a wide variety of user activities and a user-tailored collection of physical books. The number of visitors welcomed by Helsinki’s new central library Oodi, since the library opening in early December 2018, has exceeded 20,000 on the busiest days – twice the predicted number and in all the Helsinki City Library services circulates of almost 10 million volumes a year to their just over 600,000 users. Finns are among the world’s most enthusiastic users of public libraries – the country’s 5.5m million people borrow close to 68m books a year. The Helsinki City Library chose to implement IMMS as the first library outside Denmark, where the system was co-developed between the libraries of Aarhus and Copenhagen and Lyngsoe Systems, as the libraries wanted to increase automation in the process of managing the entire practical and logistic process around the physical book, freeing staff time and enabling the institutions to focus on […]

Visit from the Danish Minister of Health

VISIT FROM THE DANISH MINISTER OF HEALTH Intelligent management of hospitals – the Danish Minister of Health pays Lyngsoe Systems a visit On Monday, December 17th, 2018 we had the honor of welcoming the Danish Minister of Health, Ellen Trane Nørby to Lyngsoe Systems’ Headquarters. The minister was here to learn about how tracking and localization solutions can improve logistics and efficiency at hospitals. A hospital consists of tens of thousands of daily routines and processes and is, in fact, a very complex logistics system. By attaching RFID tags to medical equipment and assets, readers in the ceiling can monitor their every move and real-time location. This significantly reduces the time staff spends on locating assets. Ellen Trane Nørby was very engaged in the subject and immediately saw the benefits of spending fewer manhours on locating equipment and make it possible to relocate more manhours to patient care. The combination of RFID tags and reading equipment makes data capturing easy and is a key component in Lyngsoe System healthcare solutions. This was demonstrated to the minister, who even tried for herself how easy it is to capture data in a hospital and automatically log the location of various assets. The […]

Get your postal infrastructure back on track at post expo 2017

E-commerce is booming. E-tailers are providing posts and delivery companies with a major part of their revenues, but with fierce competition for online delivery, e-tailers want more from their carriers than low prices and expedited deliveries. Visibility is becoming a prime focus for e-tailers, offering their customers the ability to track their purchases throughout the supply chain. Those carriers that can offer tracking, from collection right through to the delivery at the front door, are becoming the most preferred carriers for e-tailers who want to offer their customers better flexibility, increased visibility and extra delivery options, but this poses a challenge to existing postal infrastructures. At POST Expo 2017, Geneva, September 26-28, Lyngsoe Systems are on hand to show how postal and delivery companies can get their business back on track. With over 40 years of experience within Postal Logistics, we can provide the solution to a rising demand for increased visibility thanks to our RFID technology.

Build intelligent supply chains with internet of things

A strong current trend in supply chain optimization is the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions combining track-and-trace technologies and sensor technologies with cloud based data capture. Simon Johansen, Senior Sales Director at Lyngsoe Systems, says there is a strong business case for IoT solutions in supply chains as they provide unprecedented agility and visibility. Using sensors, RFID as other data capture technologies and thus making load carriers intelligent enables you to continuously trace the whereabouts of goods while performing real-time surveillance of conditions such as humidity and temperature. This enables supply chain managers to make smart decisions to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Simon Johansen explains, “Picture a shipment of fruit which has been subject to a suboptimal temperature at some point during transportion. Although this is invisible, you know their shelf life is probably shortened, so you place them in the supermarket sooner than planned, preventing asset waste.” Designing your IoT solution RFID or Bluetooth Low Energy? Lora or SigFox? A bewildering array of tools and platforms are available for intelligent supply chain management. “Each technology comes with its own benefits and tradeoffs, so choosing the right tool for the right job is important. For example, Bluetooth allows flexible data reading […]
