Although our corporate history is brief, our team posses’ an impressive resume bringing together years of library industry experience. This expertise includes contributions on major AMH system installations across the United States, extensive software programming on material handling machines, a detailed understanding of SIP Communication and an intimate knowledge RFID hardware capabilities.
Incorporated in 2009 as an independent system integrator, we are dedicated to helping libraries increase their productivity through patented conveyance technology, improved automation methods, flexible software applications and customer friendly business practices. Since the same individuals that own the company, operate and participate in the day-to-day activities as well as business decisions, it is a quick process for us to make changes in design to meet the needs of partner libraries. This strength is what keeps us on the leading edge of library automation.
We take great pride in providing exceptional service & offering unique solutions to our customers. Our systems can vary in complexity from basic RFID check-in at returns, to simple conveyance, or highly automated sorting schemes. Every solution we propose is considered on its own merits to provide tremendous productivity gains as well as immediate return on investment for the library.
RFIDLS only serves the libraries. As a result, we understand the circulation process as well as the needs of staff when handling or checking in thousands of items a day. We sympathize with the budget limitations you must work with and therefore seek to develop solutions that fit your individual work flow or facility.
Concentrating solely on library material handling has allowed us to develop creative options for eliminating staff touches during the circulation process. The tote induction module pictured allows this particular library to empty 25 - 35 totes per day. In fact, the system has allowed them to move 4-5 staff personnel from the back workroom out to the floor in order to focus on more customer oriented services.
Each AMH system is designed & built to suit the library workroom. Computer aided design serves as a tremendous visual tool when presenting layout options as well as discussing capabilities. From the beginning, library staff will have much input into how or where the system will reside.
Our engineers and technicians understand how this technology works, what it's limitations are, and how to optimize RFID hardware in a given situation. We will always talk honestly about how our machines can and cannot perform. If there is an alternate option, let's explore it!
