Endeavor Information Systems made a number of announcements at ALA Midwinter concerning how it names its products. The company has entirely retired The ENCompass brand, formerly associated with several of the companyís products.

Hereís the new line-up:

Other product names that will remain unchanged include: Voyager, the companyís flagship ILS; the LinkFinderPlus link server, and the Meridian electronicresource management system.

Personnel changes at Endeavor include the appointment of Geoffrey Adams to a newly formed position as director of archive solutions. Adams, an Elsevier veteran, was previously director of IT Solutions for Endeavorís parent company. The creation of this position reflects the companyís interest in developing products and services to assist libraries in archiving local content. Katrina Anderson, who was appointed director of presales and sales operations in August 2005, has left the company.

In a move to prepare for a China market expansion, Endeavor announced a business alliance with Jiangsu Huiwen Software Company, a major libraryautomation vendor in that country. The company will participate in the development of local interfaces for Endeavorís products and will promote Endeavor products in China. Jiangsu Huiwen offers one of the major libraryautomaton systems, Libsys2000, used in China. The company will continue to market its own ILS in addition to Endeavorís products.
