Equinox Partners With Unique Management to Provide MessageBee SMS Services

Atlanta, Ga., April 3, 2024: Equinox Open Library Initiative, a trusted leader in open source technology development and support for libraries, is pleased to announce its partnership with Unique Management Services to provide MessageBee SMS services to libraries. MessageBee is a patron engagement tool that facilitates and simplifies communications between libraries and patrons. Visit Equinox at Booth #2245 at the Public Library Association conference (April 3 – 5, 2024) to learn more.

“Unique Management is excited to partner with Equinox for text-messaging,” said Rob Klaus, President of Patron Services at Unique Management. “Many libraries struggle with low delivery rates and a lack of visibility into their outgoing text/SMS messages. MessageBee solves for that and provides the flexibility needed to handle large multi-location library systems. The partnership with Equinox will help make the entire process easier for libraries.”

Unique Management’s MessageBee helps libraries connect with patrons via email, SMS, and phone. MessageBee’s design streamlines communication workflows for libraries and maintains the library’s brand. More information about MessageBee is available at:

“Our collaboration with Unique Management will allow us to provide easy-to-use SMS messaging for the open source integrated library systems that we support,” said Galen Charlton, Implementation and IT Manager at Equinox. “We are looking forward to offering this new service to libraries.”
