WORKING FOR
SMARTER LIBRARIES

We work for smarter libraries. Not to help them survive. But to make them thrive. By automating complexity, libraries are freed to focus on becoming once again the centre of words, thoughts, ideas and culture. Join us, and help lead the way.

Intelligent Material Management system™

IMMS™ gives public libraries control of collection, space, and float management. IMMS™ complements your existing ILS and creates an unprecedented level of transparency in your material flow. Utilizing new tools for data collection, items can be tracked to the shelf, shelving cart, transport bin, or storage location.
  • Pick up to 285 items/hour
  • Save 2 minutes on each circulated item
  • 60% saved on holds management

Libraries lead the way

The library is no longer a library. It is a cultural space. A knowledge hub.

A place of vibrant ideas. With its new role comes new demands: In-depth counseling. Local community responsibility. Frictionless experiences. The library was never meant to be a static site for static knowledge.

As such, libraries are not transforming into something new. Libraries are transforming back to the original idea of being the common ground for words, images, media, culture, thoughts, and ideas.

In this new paradigm, handling, distributing, and sorting physical books should not be a core chore. On the contrary, for libraries to survive, thrive, and grow in importance, complexity must be automated.

We help automate complexity. Handle the challenges. And unleash your library’s full potential.

Naestved Library

Naestved library
Is leading the way

”With IMMS™, material handling has gone from a resource-intensive librarian task to a semiautomated logistics process, giving the librarians time for all the other necessary projects in a modern public library.”
”IMMS™ provides more precise and detailed information about where the items are located.”

Mads Jacob Dyhr-Rasmussen, Naestved library.

Hamburg library
Is leading the way

“Ergonomics is the doctrine of human labour. We wanted to improve the working conditions for our staff and create a healthier working environment. Together with Lyngsoe Systems we have developed the Ergo Box that enables library staff to remove the media from the sorting system while standing upright as much as possible. As the box floor moves up and down automatically, materials can always be handled at a back-friendly height, which reduces the risk of back pain.”

Carolin Rohrssen, Bücherhallen Hamburg.

Learn how you can lead the way

You can release librarian power, by empowering patrons to check-out and return materials by themselves through the Library Mate™ products and let them help with the sorting on shelves or feed into a Sort Mate™ sorter doing the operation fast and reliable. Watch our Library Show Reel and see how you can gain the benifits:
  • Ergonomic elimination of repetitive heavy work for staff
  • Longer hours of service – can in fact be 24/7/365
  • Compact and low noise – can be installed in existing buildings
  • Fast ROI – Increased library efficiency

Library Self-Service Equipment​

Improve safety and minimize touches with Self-Service Equipment

Self-service lets patrons take over some of the processes from staff to release time for other services such as consultancy and other new tasks, libraries are increasingly facing.

The self-service can extend to become a part of the sorting process, guiding patrons to place returned media to the requested shelf or cart, thereby bringing the media fast in circulation again.
