We’re really pleased with the success of the self-service units and their usage is steadily increasing each month
Reading,Berkshire (PRWEB UK) 28 July 2017
D-Tech International, a global provider of high-performance RFID products and library security systems, has installed sixteen self-service units across the seven libraries that make up Reading Borough Libraries and will also be installing RFID security gates at the Central Library. The self-service units have been integrated with the new library management system, and play an important role in Reading Borough Library's cost-cutting strategy.
Reading Borough Libraries is not alone in its quest to provide maximum service levels within a reduced budget. It has avoided library closures through smart management, including reduced opening hours and operational costs. Installing self-service units has enabled the team to divert resources to optimise service provision.
Simon Smith, Reading's Library Services Manager, says: "We're really pleased with the success of the self-service units and their usage is steadily increasing each month. At the moment take-up is 58%, with one site, averaging a consistent 80%, which is great.
“We are pleased with every aspect of D-Tech’s installation, and it is reassuring to know that we have invested in equipment that is supported by an excellent level of after-sales service and support.”
