Leeds City College enjoys RFID service.

In September 2013, Leeds City College’s Printworks Campus opened on Hunslet Road on the site of the former Alf Cooke Printworks, one of the most recognisable industrial landmarks in Leeds.

The Campus is now going through its second phase of developments. Part of the process that has now been completed was RFID service installation by D-Tech International Ltd. Leeds City College acquired our serveIT™ e-Series freestanding kiosk with coin & notes payment facility & change giver. This allows students to conveniently issue and return library materials as well as pay fines and fees outside of standard staffing hours.

What our customers say

  • "We are always keen to keep abreast of new technology in order to keep improving our service to customers. The new Explore centre has opened with technology which the public can see for example, the latest self issue and wi-fi, and other technology which they don't notice, like the thermal imaging people counter. Seen or unseen, it's all about improving the service to our customers. We're proud to be leading the way in terms of using the latest technology to deliver a modern service."
    Helen Whitehead
    Performance and Projects Manager, City of York Council, Libraries and Heritage Dept.

  • "D-Tech understood what our success meant to us"

    Antonio Rizzio
    Resource and Service Development Librarian, Lewisham Library & Information Service
  • "I like the self service units because they are simple, they're robust and they work.  And they've got to be, if you're doing high transaction and high volumes, you can't be having lots and lots of bells and whistles, you've got to actually have the basics, that's nice, and if you can get the basic functionality plus that, wonderful."
    Ruth Moore
    Director, CLSD, London South Bank University
  • "The new thermal imaging people counter quite simply offers a very efficient tool for measuring visitor footfall  and the more information we have, the more we can use it to provide a better service for our library visitors."
    John Usher
    ICT Development Manager, London Borough of Islington
  • "Our library staff are really pleased that we have the new counters - they have been waiting a long time for these. It means counting visitors is one less thing for them to have to think about and frees up their time so they can get on with more important tasks in the libraries."
    Mike Ellwood
    Asset Manager, Suffolk CC Libraries and Heritage
  • "Our library staff are really pleased that we have the new counters - they have been waiting a long time for these. It means counting visitors is one less thing for them to have to think about and frees up their time so they can get on with more important tasks in the libraries."

  • " 'Cool Miss!' - This is how one of our students described the new entry gates of our security system. We think it is pretty cool too, not just the gates, but the fact that our old obsolete security system has been replaced with a fully functioning smart new system. - And all done efficiently with the minimum of fuss, and nothing seemed to be too much trouble to sort out"
    Rosemary Good
    Cotham School
  • "I certainly can recommend them! D-Tech were quick to respond to our needs, and very good at helping me to decide which system we should go with - we previously had a radio frequency system that was on it's last legs! Marvin Crisp came to see us, talked about D-Tech's products, the kind of work involved in replacing our system, measured out the reception area and gave advice about how best to place the system in relation to the rest of the furniture/issue desk/exits. He sent me a map of how it would all look, with all the costings etc and the installation took all of one day, with the minimum of fuss and mess. In terms of their security tags, the prices were very reasonable and I will be recommending that in the future, we use D-Tech as our main supplier, with (depending on funding) plans to replace some of our other older security systems at other sites."
    Karen Sylvester
    Librarian, Leicester College
  • "Mark who installed our self service machine was so helpful that I think it ought to be noted.  I was very busy and he was very patient and not only did he do the installation but he adapted an old bin so we now have a very snazzy self service unit with a posh bin underneath for the reservations.."
    Gill Evans
    Leiston Library Manager, Suffolk
  • "... we wanted to let you know how pleased all at Queen’s Library are with the efficient and friendly manner with which D-Tech dealt with updating our self issue machine for Oxford’s new LMS. It has become apparent that libraries using other suppliers are still struggling to get theirs working while we have benefitted from such a smooth transition".
    Lynette Dobson
    Technical Services Librarian, The Queen's College, Oxford
  • 'We were very pleased with the care and attention to detail provided by the engineers who oversaw this installation. It was a very bespoke job and between them they had a great deal of expertise. They were courteous and efficient and worked to a very high standard.'
