On September 22, 2014, Swets Information Services B.V. filed for bankruptcy which was subsequently accepted by the court in
Amsterdam. The unfortunate announcement of the Swets bankruptcy took DWT by surprise along many others in the library world. However, Swets and DWT are continuing conversations as Swets determines their path forward.
Our partner since 2010, Swets sold Explorit, rebranded as SwetsWise Searcher, to their global markets. By pushing the envelope in service and product knowledge, Swets created many, mutually happy customers.
DWT has been in contact with our Swetswise Searcher customers to ensure that there is no lapse in customer service during this time. While we are working directly with customers, we are closely monitoring what is happening with Swets.
