Baker & Taylor and Gaylord Information Systems Alliance Formed
Gaylord Information Systems( 07/09/2001 )
Baker & Taylor, the leading distributor of books, videos and music products, to the public library market announced an alliance with Gaylord Information Systems a division of Gaylord Bros., Inc. (GIS). This alliance provides enhanced electronic data interchange (EDI) ordering in Polaris, GIS' 3rd - generation library automation system. The new interface will allow Polaris customers to do online collection development, ordering and acquisitions through Baker & Taylor. This interface will also allow for processing of branch distribution information, which will expedite the ordering and receipt of copies for multiple locations.
Truly efficient workflows for ordering, order acknowledgement and invoicing have been elusive in the world of acquisitions processing," said GIS President Katherine Blauer. "Our close collaboration with Baker & Taylor will streamline the acquisitions process and reduce the amount of time it takes to get materials into the hands of library users. Polaris and Baker &Taylor are using the most advanced version of EDI technology to accomplish this task and it paves the way for other enhancements in the acquisitions process."
The new Polaris/Baker & Taylor interface provides several advantages for Polaris customers. They can order directly from the book wholesaler using EDI. Polaris will support the latest version of EDI (4010) for ordering, order acknowledgement and invoicing. In addition, Polaris customers will be able to import order-enhanced bibliographic records from Title Source IITM into Polaris for bulk creation of purchase orders. They can also have books delivered directly to branches, which will save time and resources at the library.
Both Baker & Taylor and Gaylord Information Systems are committed to providing innovative solutions for today's library community," said George Coe, President of Baker & Taylor Institutional. "That is what this new interface is all about. Our mutual customers will benefit tremendously from this technology. Libraries will now be able to streamline their collection development systems, online acquisitions and cataloging and processing services. Baker & Taylor is pleased to announce this partnership and is confident that it will result in a more efficient workflow for our customers," Coe added.
Future plans for the two companies include development of an XML version of the Polaris/Baker & Taylor interface. "It is exciting to be working with GIS on this cutting edge technology," said Livia Bitner, Baker & Taylor Senior Vice President of Customized Library Services. "This collaboration affords us the opportunity to serve our common customers better."
