Sirsi and Brodart Co. Announce Alliance

Nov 25, 2003

Sirsi Corporation, a provider of library technology, has announced an alliance with Brodart Co. that seeks to make acquisitions of library materials by Sirsi clients more effective. Both companies are now working together to use the X12 standard format to simplify and expedite acquisitions, ordering, and invoicing through Electronic Data Interchange. Brodart's 2.3 million-title database is designed to provide access to timely and accurate information available on title status and availability. Once complete, the alliance with Brodart is expected to allow Sirsi libraries to electronically order, invoice, and receive books and other materials quickly and more efficiently using the Unicorn Library Management System.
