TAGSYS, the global leader in item-level RFID infrastructure announced a comprehensive RFID system deployment for all branches of the Geneva City Libraries (Bibliothèques Municipales de Genève – BM).

TAGSYS also announced that BM is the first library network to deploy e-connectware, TAGSYS' innovative software for the remote, real-time management and optimization of RFID networks. Working with its Swiss partner SOLID, the system is a response to BM's request for benchmark management of inventory and loans.

As one of the largest Swiss libraries network, Geneva City Libraries (BM) places users at the heart of its activities. In order to fulfill the user's needs for information, culture and leisure, the BMs concentrate their effort to propose a free and a wide variety of collections (books, CDs, DVDs, etc.), events (exhibitions, conferences, etc.) and quality services.

The BM network is constituted of seven libraries (with spaces for young people and adults), one multimedia library, two discotheques, one library dedicated to sports, five bookmobiles, a prison library and home delivery service. BM represents 1.6 million loans per year, 7 600 new subscriptions each year and 500 000 annual visits.

BM has purchased nearly 800,000 TAGSYS Folio RFID tags, with 600,000 embedded in books, 100,000 on CDs and 80,000 in patron cards. The library also has purchased 50 TAGSYS security gates and 50 circulation stations.

“The Geneva deployment isan excellent showcase for e-connectware's power and adaptability,” said Elie Simon, president and CEO of TAGSYS. “BM is dependent on its RFID systems to track and protect hundreds of thousands of books, CDs and other valuable library material across many branches. Without e-connectware, BM would not have as high an assurance for quality of service and overall high performance of this system.”

e-connectware is a comprehensive set of management and administrative tools to remotely manage and optimize RFID system functions in real time to enable the highest quality-of-service levels and ensure data accuracy and integrity in item-level tagging.
