Journal shelf planning software Roger D Brown 28 Mar 1996 20:31 UTC

In January I wrote to this list asking if anyone had knowledge of any shelf
planning software to assist with library moves/consolidations.
Many list members requested such details should I find anything, but one
person suggested the following company:-

4635 Highway 92
Powder Spring, Georgia 30073
voice 800-942-4043
fax 404-261-6963
Contact:  John Moore

Their product is called Shelf Space Manager. Price is $599. A demonstration
diskette is available which shows the functions available.

Whilst I (or my company) cannot recommend this product for anyone else, it
appears to be the only product on the market that satisfies our requirements.
I hope this will be useful information for those others who expressed an
interest in this topic.
