LEHI, UTAH (November 4, 2013) – SirsiDynix today announced the acquisition of EOS International, a California-based technology company that develops award-winning solutions for legal, government, corporate, medical, and other special library customers. With 1100 implementations worldwide, EOS customers will join SirsiDynix customers to create the largest and most inclusive customer base in the history of the library automation industry.
Bill Davison, CEO of SirsiDynix, commented, “With this acquisition, we’re demonstrating our ongoing commitment to the library industry. We will continue to invest in the people, technologies and products necessary to develop, distribute, and support the dynamic solutions that libraries need to be successful. We’re now even more capable of delivering exceptional products on a global scale with the precise features that each library requires.”
“SirsiDynix will be able to take the EOS customers to the next level, in terms of product innovation, financial stability, and long-term security,” said Scot Cheatham, CEO of EOS International. “This acquisition shows SirsiDynix’s commitment to the smaller library market that we serve. It was apparent to us that SirsiDynix is in a better position to take EOS solutions to a worldwide audience than we were equipped to do on our own. That was very important to us as we looked at this acquisition, and we’re excited to have a partner like SirsiDynix that has the reach to make it happen.”
Because of their unique focus on special libraries, the EOS products and services will continue to be developed and maintained as currently constituted. There are no plans for product consolidation, nor will the product roadmaps of either organization be changed by the acquisition. On this point, Bill Davison commented, “No products are going to go away. We’ll continue to work hard to exceed customer expectations and deliver the entire spectrum of products and services that our libraries need in order to serve their user communities.”
SirsiDynix connects people with knowledge at more than 23,000 libraries around the world. Through library management technology and search and discovery tools, libraries using SirsiDynix technology bring relevant resources and the power of knowledge to their users and communities. SirsiDynix technology is architected to be open, scalable and robust, offering a complete solution out-of-the-box, and unparalleled flexibility through APIs and web services.
