2016 - 2017
This engagement built on previous work done with Solano County in 2006 and 2007. At that time, the materials handling workflows were analyzed and numerous recommendations made. Since that time, many of the recommendations had been implemented. In 2016, Solano County Library contacted Lori Ayre of The Galecia Group to assist them in re-evaluated the recommendations given changing conditions. After conducting site visits, reviewing current data and working closely with the Library, a revised set of recommendations were developed and the Library began the procurement process shortly thereafter.
Ayre developed the RFP for procuring the recommended AMH and RFID technologies and is working with the Library to select a vendor. This process includes guiding the Library through the evaluation process which includes the RFP development plus evaluation, facilitating demonstrations and faciliating scoring and final vendor selection.
