(January 20, 2012). SydneyPLUS Inmagic division acquires Presto product
SydneyPLUS KM, provider of Library KM software and solutions to Fortune 1000 companies, law firms and government agencies has just announced that its Inmagic division has reacquired Presto, bringing it back into Inmagic's portfolio of library and KM solutions. Presto is a social knowledge management platform integrating knowledge-based content with the "wisdom of the community" to create an Enterprise 2.0 environment that supports your organization’s research and business objectives. Inmagic also acquired the applications built using the Presto platform: Presto Social Library, Presto KnowledgeNet, Presto AssociatioNet, and Presto IdeaNet. In late 2011 SydneyPLUS KM acquired Inmagic's Library Suite of products and trademark. Simultaneously, it announced the intent to form a strategic partnership to co-market and support the Presto product line.

Breeding, Marshall, Smart Libraries Newsletter (December 2011). SydneyPLUS acquires Inmagic Assets: Continued Consolidation in the Special Library and Knowledge Management Solutions Arena
In a move that continues the trend toward consolidation in the broader library automation industry and significantly alters the landscape in the special library sector, SydneyPLUS has acquired key assets from Inmagic. This transaction does not involve a complete acquisition of the company, but brings the library-oriented core of Inmagic under the ownership of Sydney- PLUS. It involves a division of the assets across two organizations: the Inmagic Division of SydneyPLUS International and the former Inmagic, Inc., which will assume a new identity. In general terms, the Inmagic Division of SydneyPLUS will continue with a focus on its traditional customer base in special libraries while the remaining entity will take the Presto technology into other market sectors and industries.

Library Systems Newsletter (January 2000). ILS evolving to SydneyPLUS
International Library Systems has begun to de-emphasize its name in recent advertising and on its letterhead. The new name, in large print, is "SydneyPLUS International." Its original name still appears in small print, but the company is clearly seeking to take advantage of the better known name of its principal product. Its Web address and e-mail address also reflect this new emphasis.
