What our customers say
“We are always searching for ways to expand and enhance services to our customers. We have an amazing team of programmers, librarians and customer service staff. And we constantly strive to meet our city’s goal to create Raving Fans by delivering world-class service. The book locker is a great tool to meet this goal. It gives our customers the convenience of location, the freedom of 24-hour service and the access to all of our materials. And frankly, no one can touch the service we have received from D-Tech. Our enhancement requests were met with enthusiasm and were implemented within months, not years. We give this type of service to our customers and welcomed receiving it from D-Tech.”Peter Sime – Supervisor of People, Grand Prairie Public Library System
“I just want to say thank you so much for sorting out the on-going issue I have been having with the gates. Mark popped around last Friday and made some adjustments. He also increased the volume of the signal so it is easier to hear the alarm even with a hoard of kids trying to leave the library simultaneously.
I’ve been testing it regularly and it works beautifully (hope I am not tempting fate here…).
I just want to let you know that I think you provide an amazing customer service. There are issues and teething problems with most technical products (mine were extreme!), but that’s ok if the technical support is good which is definitely the case with D-Tech. Very happy that I went with your company!”Asa Nylinder
Rivers Academy West London.
“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.
“The equipment looks great and is really easy for the public to use, and D-Tech have supported us in making sure that we are providing a quality service.”Vivian Drake
Somerset County Council
“The focus throughout the tender process was quality and consistency of service that could be offered to the LUPC membership and D-Tech were able to meet all these requirements to become one of our preferred suppliers on this agreement”Charlotte Nasufi
London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC)
“Self service helps our library staff be even more brilliant.”Janice Bell

We’ve been very well supported by D-Tech.”Janice Bell
“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.”Jeff Watson
Librarian, St Cuthberts RC High School
” ‘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
“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.’Sue Killoran
