The Link

The new application, called ‘The Link’, allows users to access and make payments across council or other web-based services from one single service point. This makes life easier and more convenient for library visitors and brings the library closer to becoming a one-stop-shop for community services.

Marvin Crisp, managing director, D-Tech said: “We are working with libraries to look at ways in which additional council services can be accessed via our RFID self-service kiosks.

"Technology has already scoped the library service so that users can manage their own issue and returns online, using payment and receipt functions, so why not move on to, for example, paying bills, booking services or checking statements from the same single service point."
