What our customers say

Because Axiell’s collection management system meets the EU Standard for cataloguing collections we can take a best practice approach to collection management, with a technology solution that supports open data and enables the SFI to manage multiple collections within the same system. The solution is used by other film archives across the world, giving us confidence that we have selected the right solution to support our strategy to preserve our extensive archive and make it accessible to anyone.

Mathias Rosengren, MD of Film Heritage Department Swedish Film Institute

We want to ensure that we can present relevant and educational information to our visitors, both when they visit the museum or when they come to one of our screenings and online. That means that we want to manage our whole collection and the one million objects that we have, from film to library to archive. Axiell’s solution allows us to achieve that with an up-to-date technology, which was one of the main reasons for our choice.

Jean Gagnon, Director of Preservation and Access to Collections La Cinémathèque québécoise

The BFI in partnership with regional and national film archives, digitized 10,000 films from collections around the UK, and we’ve been preserving the digital assets from that project into our new CMS and DAMS integration solution. So [we have] permanently safe, secure, accessible storage for the national film heritage.
