December 8, 2021, LEHI, Utah and AARS, Denmark—SirsiDynix, provider of the market-leading Symphony ILS and Lyngsoe Systems, provider of smart library solutions including IMMS—Intelligent Material Management System—have signed a collaboration agreement that will lead to full, real-time integration between Symphony and IMMS. This exciting development will enable libraries using the Symphony ILS to benefit from the transformational changes and efficiency experienced by libraries already using IMMS, such as Aarhus and Copenhagen in Denmark, Helsinki in Finland, and Sacramento in the United States. These libraries have seen significant reductions in the amount of staff time focused on material handling, enabling increased focus on delivering exceptional public services.
IMMS gives libraries control of collections and space and float management. IMMS complements the ILS and creates an unprecedented level of transparency in your material flow while significantly reducing the amount of staff time spent on material handling. Utilizing new tools for data collection, items can be tracked to the shelf, shelving cart, transport bin, or storage location.
“We believe that IMMS provides dramatic efficiency improvements for material transit and hold shelf processes for multi-branch and multi-library settings,” said Berit Nelson, Chief Product Officer at SirsiDynix. “IMMS represents new ways to maximize use and storage of physical materials while promoting collection equity and saving staff time. We are excited to announce development of an IMMS interface for SirsiDynix Symphony.
“In SirsiDynix, we are happy to have found likeminded experts, who believe in the power of libraries and the empowerment to transform that technology provides them. With the development of the Symphony interface to IMMS™, we can offer this unique solution to the large number of Symphony libraries across North America,” said Cory McCoy, President of Lyngsoe Systems in the US.
“And even to the many Symphony libraries across the World”, supplements Henrik Kjeldgaard, Senior Vice President of the Library Division at Lyngsoe Systems, “which all face the same challenges in utilizing their resources in the smartest possible ways to allow for the continuous transformation.”
