PTFS Acquires LibLime

PTFS Acquires LibLime Progressive Technology Federal Systems, Inc. (PTFS) has acquired LibLime. "PTFS has supported ILS solutions for 15 years, so the acquisition of LibLime and the addition of their Koha customer base is logical expansion for PTFS. With our in-depth knowledge of both the bibliographic and digital collection arenas, we are in an excellent position to bring the necessary technologies to libraries. We will make the Koha Open-Source ILS more cost-effective for libraries struggling to keep pace with commercial pricing during tough economic times. We welcome the opportunity to partner with all of these new customers to advance the capabilities of Koha," stated John Yokley, PTFS CEO. This acquisition expands PTFS's existing U.S. and European open-source library solutions business. In addition, it will accelerate PTFS’s Digital Library System (DLS) initiative, an integration between the Koha ILS and ArchivalWare. The DLS solution will provide libraries and information centers with a next generation solution by providing a single toolset to manage all of their collections – print and digital.
