Transform Library Returns with Lyngsoe Intelligent Return Shelf™

The Lyngsoe Intelligent Return Shelf™ transforms the traditional process of returning materials into a seamless, efficient experience for both patrons and staff. Merging modern design with RFID technology, this solution not only elevates the aesthetics of your library but also streamlines operations. Discover how our Intelligent Return Shelf™ redefines the library experience, making it more convenient, efficient, and enjoyable for everyone.

Effortless Smart RFID Return Self-Check

The Lyngsoe Intelligent Return Shelf™ revolutionizes the way materials are returned in modern libraries. Positioned strategically near the library's entrance, these specially designed shelves with integrated RFID antennas ensure seamless and rapid check-ins. When a patron returns an item, it's as simple as placing it on the shelf. Every time a patron returns an item to the shelf, it sends the information directly to the library system and registers the material as returned which eliminates the hassles of queues and prolonged wait times.

Furthermore, the benefits of this system are manifold. Not only does it facilitate swift check-ins, but the visible returns also inspire the next patron – in fact, approximately 35% of items are borrowed by the ensuing visitor, drastically reducing staff handling. Its stylish design complements library interiors, and its user-friendly nature allows multiple items to be returned simultaneously. Additionally, the return system ensures immediate availability of books for the next checkout, and patrons have the convenience of returning materials even outside of staffed hours. Those keen on expanding the return capacity will find its scalability to be a notable advantage.

If the idea of intelligent shelves intrigues you and you're envisioning a solution that embodies a mini-library, you might want to delve deeper into the functionalities of the Libcabinet.
