Welcome to aStec GmbH

Extensive competence in the development of integrated information and library management systems (OPAC)

|a|S|tec| applied System technology GmbH belongs to one of the leading providers of software for library and information management (OPAC) in Germany. Our library management system aDIS/BMS stands the test of extended daily use over the years in the Association of Public Libraries in Berlin (Verbund der öffentlichen Bibliotheken Berlins) and the Munich City Library (Stadtbibliothek München), processing millions of loans yearly and completely managing all library operations. The Library of the German Parliament (Bibliothek des Deutschen Bundestages), one of the largest parliament libraries in Europe, is one of our customers.


Library Management System

aDIS/BMS is the adaptable library management system for the highly efficient processing of all imaginable library operations. With modern technology, it significantly reduces the load of the library staff and offers at the same time a comprehensive service to the users.


Information System for Archives

aDIS/Archive administers conventional archive materials similarly like electronic documents in digital archives. The collection management, the recording of archival materials and the specific description and storage of images and audio visual as well as museum objects build the core of the application.


Research in external sources

aDIS/Portal provides a central access to several information sources and offers this as a service. With the combination with CSL-Bridge, aDIS/Portal is, among others, a dynamic contextual linking system. It is universally usable, but is distributed also as additional component to aDIS/BMS.


Knowledge Management System

aDIS/Knowledge is a complicated and yet easy-to-use knowledge management system.
With aDIS/Knowledge, the available electronic knowledge in the library as well as the data content from external resources will be structured to valuable knowledge building blocks. aDIS/Knowledge assists you in the acquisition, distribution and utilization of knowledge.
