TLC Announces Compatibility of CARL•Solution with mk Solutions

The Library Corporation (TLC) is pleased to announce full compatibility between CARLSolution and mk Solutions’ self-check products with integrated payment offerings including cash, card, and NFC payment. Sharing a philosophy that aims to bring an enhanced personalized experience to the library marketplace helped drive this successful collaboration.

The first CARL library to take advantage of this partnership is the Metropolitan Library System
(MLS) in Oklahoma City. They have been pleased with the ease of use that the self-check machines and CARLSolution integration has provided their community and staff. “Our library users have been happy with the clean, web based interface and the optional screen layouts that are available and our staff appreciates the strong reporting tools of the mk Solutions product. The integration with the CARL ILS has been incredibly successful. We value the relationship we have built with TLC and the streamlined third party integration projects we have come to expect from them,” shared Anne Fischer, Deputy Executive Director of Technology with the Metropolitan Library System.

In their search for an updated self-check system, MLS was seeking to work with a company that not only provided an easy to use interface, but they were also looking for a company who provides the same level of unparalleled support that they receive from TLC. TLC prides itself on delivering outstanding levels of customer service and collaborating with mk Solutions to bring best of breed solutions to their customer base was a natural fit.
