Dematic, a leader in intelligent automation, was recently named the winner of two awards: LibraryWorks, 2022 Modern Library Awards and Food Logistics, 2021 Top Software & Technology Providers.
LibraryWorks 2022 Platinum Award Winner
Dematic was named a 2022 platinum award winner by LibraryWorks, a publication dedicated to serving the library community with professional development and decision point research. In their, eighth annual Modern Library Awards, Dematic won for its Automated Library Systems (ALSs), which are special applications of Dematic Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RSs).
Judges of the LibraryWorks award scored the submitted products numerically from 1–10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, and more. As a platinum winner, Dematic scored between 8.5–10.0 in all categories considered.
"Our systems help facilitate some of the world's greatest book collections," said Todd Hunter, Sr. Account Executive, Enterprise Solutions. "To preserve library collections, an ALS can operate in a controlled environment that has the proper humidity and temperature and is free of dust and other contaminants, helping to keep books in pristine condition while also making them accessible to students and researchers alike."
The Dematic solutions use a unique integrated software control system that provides fully automated collection management. Additionally, ALSs features high-density storage, rapid access with minimum labor, and peak efficiency and accuracy.
Examples of the Dematic ALS systems can be found at The University of Chicago, University of Utah, University of Central Florida, and Temple University.
