Comprise Technologies Receives 2021 Modern Library Awards PRODUCT of the YEAR from LibraryWorks

NAVESINK, NJ, January 14th, 2021 – Known as an innovator in the library and municipal markets, Comprise Technologies is thrilled to announce it has received Product of the Year honors for its PC and Print Management solution, SAM PX. This distinction was bestowed upon Comprise in LibraryWorks’ seventh annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs.) The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry each year.

Organizations all over North America submitted entries for their new or existing products in the fall of 2020 using a simple application, that was then posted on a private site with a detailed description and explanation of their products workflow and value to the library market. These products were then batched into small groups and sent to the LibraryWorks database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with experience with these library solutions in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in a truly unbiased score.

Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, etc. The product with the overall highest score was then awarded the coveted Product of the Year award. Comprise Technologies is honored to have come out on top with its newly modified SAM PX solution.

Daniel Curtin, President of Comprise Technologies said, “First and foremost, I want to thank all the judges who ranked us so highly, we could not have gotten this far without your support. When I started this company over 30 years ago, I had a vision of greatness for Comprise and with the finest team, I think we have been able to create revolutionary products and solutions for our customers. We have no plans to slow down.”
