ODILO partners with the national library of the Netherlands to boost their digital library

ODILO's technology will evolve the digital content platform for 17 million Dutch people
  • ODILO has been awarded the international tender to become a provider of e-lending services to the national library of the Netherlands, which can be accessed by over 17 million Dutch people
  • ODILO will provide the new ODILO 3.0 service to the national library of the Netherlands; the technology recently launched by the Spanish company uses Artificial Intelligence to provide optimized access to digital library resources. 
  • This new public tender awarded to ODILO, confirms the leadership of the Spanish company in the consortia, statewide and nationwide digital library market where their technology serves over 100 million people in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Australia. 

The Spanish provider ODILO has won the international RFP process launched by the national library of the Netherlands (KB), where they searched for a cooperative, transparent, long-term partnership with an experienced supplier in the global digital library market to boost their current solution.

The national library of the Netherlands will migrate from having two platforms (one for ebooks and another one for audiobooks), which is one of the world’s most successful digital loan systems and is making millions of digital loans a year, and integrate them both to the new ODILO 3.0 intelligent digital library service starting in 2020.

The new ODILO 3.0 allows organizations to offer unified access to all content formats (ebooks, audiobooks, courses, podcasts, magazines, videos, newspapers and much more) and thousands of content providers in a unified and fully customized platform. Powered by advanced data analytics and artificial intelligence, the new service allows libraries to optimize their content budgets and offers a great digital consumption experience. 

We are very excited to have been awarded such a demanding international public tender by presenting our new intelligent public library product; we are excited to become partners with one of the most successful library networks in the world and about the potential of this project to transform how libraries interact with their communities.  We look forward to contributing as technological partners with the mission of the Dutch public libraries, which is the elevation of people, ” – Rodrigo Rodríguez, ODILO’s CEO. 

We are pleased to have chosen ODILO as a key strategic partner to develop an optimized digital library experience for all the users of our system. Our team is really excited to partner with ODILO in this new stage and offer the Dutch library users the best digital experience, ” – Hans Pleysier, Project Manager of the KB.
