Library Automated Materials Handling Consultation and ProcurementSubmitted by Lori Ayre on Tue, 04/12/2016 - 8:39am
Worked with San Mateo Public Library to replace the existing automated materials handling system with a state-of-the-art system. Project involved consultation related to RFID and automated materials handling configuration options and includes development of RFP, guiding the library through the procurement process and assisting with selection of a new system.
The existing system was installed in 2006 and provides convenient patron returns from numerous locations including drive-up returns, outside walk-up returns and two inside returns. The project will include evaluating options for retaining some of the conveyance and only upgrading the sorter as well as full-scale replacement of all components. Ayre worked closely with the team to develop specifications for the new system and guided them through the procurement process. The new system has been successfully implemented and is now up and running.
