LibCode merges with Softlink

November 20, 2017

Softlink Education General Manager, Hillary Noye and LibCode Founder Alan Ford are pleased to announce that LibCode is merging its school library business with Softlink Education.

LibCode has provided school library systems from its base in Toowoomba, Australia for over 30 years.

LibCode Founder Alan Ford said that the merge was a good fit for the future of his customers and employees.

“Our recent attempts to develop a cloud based system led to disappointment as prospective partners were not able to adapt quickly enough to suit our requirements and meet the needs of our clients,” Alan said.

Alan cites Softlink’s investments in refining and developing state-of-the-art library software, its head office proximity to the majority of LibCode users and the integration of LibCode staff as key reasons for making the decision.

Softlink Education General Manager, Hillary Noye said that LibCode’s customer centric focus, complementary technologies and strong presence in the Education market in Queensland were key to Softlink’s decision.

“We are excited about the opportunities this merger will provide for the future of all combined customers and employees,” Hillary said.

Softlink would like to take this opportunity to welcome all LibCode product users.

“It’s business as usual – for both existing Softlink customers and for LibCode users - same staff, same software, same focus and commitment to delivery,” Hillary said.

The merger was closed and formalised on the 15th of November, 2017.
