Syslore and TietoEnator cooperate in library solutions

Syslore and TietoEnator cooperate in library solutions TietoEnator Corporation and Syslore Oy have agreed to implement Syslore mCorrection error-correcting fuzzy logic text recognition to the Internet information retrieval system of the PallasPro library system. The solution is already in the pilot testing stage. mCorrection is a program which, in real time, corrects spelling errors of library system users making database queries. The software is based on a mathematical algorithm, which makes the solution language independent and efficient. Error correction is a very important feature from the point of view of the user. Nowadays the greatest service problem is considered to be information retrieval, since the correct spelling of a word can be hard to remember and misspellings are common. It is possible to significantly increase the usability of the services by utilizing the error correction program. - We are happy to be able to offer our own customers the benefits of Syslore's text recognition software. Thanks to its language independence, the software is ideal for our purposes, states TietoEnator's branch manager Antti Soini. - Cooperation with TietoEnator in the library sector presents Syslore with a good opportunity to reach a wide variety of libraries. TietoEnator is a market leader in Finland and therefore a natural choice as a partner, says Henri Tykkä, the Managing Director of Syslore, about the contract. With over 250 customer libraries serving some 2.5 million people, TietoEnator is the leading supplier of IT solutions for libraries in Finland. For example, 10 out of the 20 regional libraries offering province-wide services are TietoEnator customers. TietoEnator is a pioneer in the implementation of Internet-based and mobile library solutions that support electronic services in public networks. Customers at PallasPro-enabled libraries currently accumulate over 1 million electronic online transactions per month.
