PIKinc. lives in the library industry every day. We don’t take third party products and try to shoehorn them into half-baked solutions. We start from the ground up and ask the questions that need to be asked to ensure a positive result. This guides our development process as we define the best balance of form and function for every product we create. Sometimes we can use an existing platform as a base, but only if we have the flexibility to enhance the usability to match the needs of our customers and their patrons. You can rest assured knowing that every PIKinc. solution starts with a healthy dose of innovation. We see beyond the traditional barriers that limit other companies. We strive to do things that others don’t even dream of. Our team will settle for nothing less.
