Soutron Global Recognized by Smart Libraries, an ALA TechSource Publication

Past Competitive Leadership Experience, Industry Relationships, Flexibility, Relative Strength of Products, Industry Vendor Investment Upheaval Cited

San Diego, CA


International library transformation company Soutron Global is pleased to announce its recognition in the April 2012, Volume XXXII Number 4 edition of Smart Libraries, an ALA TechSource publication.

In this latest edition, titled “Investing in the Industry,” Smart Libraries editor Marshall Breeding covers the value external and internal investors see in the library automation industry, the type of library technology partnerships libraries must make, and recent industry investment upheavals, including the investment in Soutron Global made by industry veteran Tony Saadat.

Soutron Global is a new player in the North American market and brings a new dimension to its full featured integrated library system with its robust integration of digital asset management (DAM) capabilities. Information professionals in special libraries and archives are tasked with making internally created assets as findable as externally created ones that comprise a more traditional library. Soutron Global makes this possible all in one package.

According to Breeding, when it comes to library vendor success, “In the end, the business model or ownership of the company is only one of many factors that come into play as libraries make technology decisions. The strength of products, quality of support, and a solid understanding of library futures are factors, I think, [that] are more important differentiators.”

“The Soutron Global difference is commitment to being responsive to our clients by providing the most flexible library system available, with the best service,” responds Saadat. “Further, due to my direct past experience with the technology choices available today, knowledge of how flexible Soutron Global is, industry commitment, and eagerness to partner with libraries to help manage the impactful, transformative challenges they face today, I’m delighted to have my digital library automation software solution, Soutron Global, be recognized by Smart Libraries and Marshall Breeding.”
