Innovative Expands Worldwide Presence with New Office in Dublin, Ireland

Emeryville, CA—Innovative announced today that it has opened a new office in Dublin, Ireland. The Dublin Innovative team will initially include eight library and technology experts who will be helping to support Innovative customers internationally and taking on technology projects relating to the full complement of Innovative products, including the Sierra Services Platform.

"With the opening of the Dublin office, Innovative is deepening its commitment to serving our partner libraries worldwide and positioning the company for further growth in Europe and beyond," said Kim Massana, Innovative's Chief Executive Officer. "We are looking forward to building on the successful launch of Sierra last year and continuing to expand our presence internationally."

The Sierra Services Platform has seen an extraordinary level of adoption across the international library and information community with more than 320 library systems having so far committed to Sierra, representing over 1,000 libraries worldwide. Sierra represents a new approach to library technology that provides the extensive functionality required for today's libraries, while also bringing open architecture to library staff, allowing them to create their own solutions and adapt rapidly to the changing role of their libraries and institutions.
