What our customers think

The solution goes with the flow of what archivists do. I find that it handles the complete workflow for an archivist efficiently and effectively. I can get an instant visual representation of the complete archive, which I find extremely valuable, and adding the strong support for managing digital born content, it really is a solution any archivist would benefit from working with.

Chris Hilton, The Wellcome Trust Wellcome Trust

We had a lot of information that we needed to store in a very logical way, and we wanted to make that available to the public. For the first time in the Hall’s 140-year history we were able to make that history public.
