Our Automated Sortation Systems support libraries to work smarter by delivering enhanced customer satisfaction through greater staff productivity
Why invest in a 3M Automated Sortation System?
Reduce time spent physically handling items allowing staff to allocate more time to other value-added activities.
New books enter circulation quicker; staff time and effort in receipting new stock can be significant reduced by using the sorter as part of the acquisitions process.
Returned items are made available quicker; items that are on hold or belong in the short loan collection can be sorted into dedicated bin locations so that they can be given priority and returned to the shelves immediately.
More convenient returns facilities; external access points allow library customers to return items out-of-hours.
