San Francisco library taps ITC Systems

Thursday, December 27, 2012

The San Francisco Public Library has deployed a cashless system from by ITC Systems and the company’s partner on the project, Konica Minolta.

The job required 36 Cash Card Loaders, 42 Card Readers, 16 Microfilm Readers and a suite of ITC Print Manager software programs, all of which needed to support 300 workstations and 112 printers.


The library system needed a system that required minimal training for staff and patrons. The ITC Systems solution involved a PrinterOn Web-Based Printing program that enables patrons to send print jobs directly to their chosen Bizhub through the library’s wireless network.

Users can now view hot spots directly from the library’s home page. ITC Systems also ensured the entire project complied with the City of San Francisco’s “green” mandate. [end]
