The new Preservation: shared access to digital collections

Your organization keeps history alive by managing lots of important artifacts and information. In today’s digital world this translates to digital files and metadata . Preserve it all with a command center that offers the power of an expensive digital asset management system (DAMS) at 1/20th the cost of the closest competition.

Preserve, curate and share.

Add contextual metadata to the photo, video, or document of the artifact.

“I’ve been using FileMaker Pro for 30 years to organize our collection
and always hoped something like this would come along.”
