What our customers think

Axiell’s products are really flexible and easy to implement. Each department has specific needs in terms of how they create and access data, and Axiell allows me to customise this. Data can be created and accessed in a variety of ways and meeting a variety of needs, while being stored in a single database. The process as a whole saves time and resources for the museum.

Rebecca Menendez, Director, Information Services and Technology Autry Museum of the American West

It’s been a really good, functional, stable system for us and it’s got a good support system. We’ve been working with the same core team since we started and they’re still working on it now so it gives you that trust element. They know our database really well, and they know us really well.
