Aars, Denmark -- December 1, 2020. "I am very happy to be able to announce that Colin Carter will bring his many years of experience from libraries, and latest Innovative Interfaces Inc., and join Lyngsoe Systems in the Library Business Unit specifically the IMMS team from December 1, 2020", says Business Unit Director Henrik Kjeldgaard.

It is clear that the IMMS has the ability to transform library services in many different ways and Colin looks forward to sharing this excitement with the library community.

"With Colin joining us in our efforts to support libraries across the globe with smarter processes, we look forward to engaging in even more dialogues on how IMMS can support the transformation libraries of all sizes are engaging in. At Lyngsoe Systems, we are always Working for Smarter Libraries, in order for libraries to thrive and add more and more value to the community, so I am very pleased to include Colin's competences and many years of experience on precisely that journey," concludes Henrik Kjeldgaard.

About Lyngsoe Systems

Lyngsoe Systems has been a world leader in the field of cutting-edge electronic logistics control for over 40 years and is leading within the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. With a proven record of accomplishment of more than 3,700 installations in over 60 countries, the Lyngsoe Systems team can demonstrate extensive experience in customer process knowledge, solution design, software development, integration, service and maintenance.

Lyngsoe Systems' Library unit aims to release librarian power by offering logistics solutions for improved patron service. IMMS automatically reports the media as returned to the library management system, where all data resides. The integrated scanners in the inductions read the RFID tags and/or bar codes on the media, and the software determines the appropriate material category (e.g. novels), before sending the media on to the sorter. The sorter conveys the media to the chute/destination as defined by the library staff in the control software.

About IMMS

Utilizing new tools for data collection, items can be tracked to the shelf, shelving cart, transport bin, or storage location. These tools greatly increase the quality of data, and significantly improve the circulation of your collection. The intelligent distribution-algorithm manages and optimizes item distribution in a floating or partly floating collection.
