SirsiDynix buys EOS International

Share this on social media:

SirsiDynix has announced the acquisition of EOS International, a California-based technology company that develops solutions for legal, government, corporate, medical, and other special library customers.

Bill Davison, CEO of SirsiDynix, commented, 'With this acquisition, we’re demonstrating our ongoing commitment to the library industry. We will continue to invest in the people, technologies and products necessary to develop, distribute, and support the dynamic solutions that libraries need to be successful. We’re now even more capable of delivering exceptional products on a global scale with the precise features that each library requires.'

'SirsiDynix will be able to take the EOS customers to the next level, in terms of product innovation, financial stability, and long-term security,' said Scot Cheatham, CEO of EOS International. 'This acquisition shows SirsiDynix’s commitment to the smaller library market that we serve. It was apparent to us that SirsiDynix is in a better position to take EOS solutions to a worldwide audience than we were equipped to do on our own. That was very important to us as we looked at this acquisition, and we’re excited to have a partner like SirsiDynix that has the reach to make it happen.'

Because of its focus on special libraries, the EOS products and services will continue to be developed and maintained as currently constituted, says SirsiDynix, which adds that 'there are no plans for product consolidation, nor will the product roadmaps of either organisation be changed by the acquisition.' Davison explained: 'No products are going to go away. We’ll continue to work hard to exceed customer expectations and deliver the entire spectrum of products and services that our libraries need in order to serve their user communities.'
