Northampton, UK (PRWEB UK) 29 November 2012
Extensis today announced a strategic partnership with zetcom, one of the world’s leading suppliers of Collection Management Systems for museums, galleries and cultural heritage institutions. zetcom develops its products on the basis of international standards with a focus on quality and service. With over 700 installations globally, their customers include le Musée du Louvre (Paris), The State Museums of Berlin, Nationalmuseum (Stockholm) and The Wallace Collection (London).
“Collections Management Systems are great at managing object information from a curatorial perspective, but only go so far when it comes to considering content as Digital Assets”, said Richard Bamford, EMEA Business Director at Extensis. “Extensis is pleased to announce its partnership with zetcom. Through this partnership, organisations will be able to find, manage, and convert the digital assets associated with their collection objects.”
Last week at Mutec, Torsten Köbel, Country Manager of Extensis Germany and zetcom’s Norbert Kanter presented a case study illustrating how the Courtauld Institute of Art (in London) uses zetcom’s MuseumPlus integrated with Extensis Portfolio Server to catalogue their collection of paintings, prints and photographs.
Norbert Kanter, Director at zetcom states, “By combining Extensis’ Digital Asset Management System with zetcom’s Collection Management Systems, we are able to provide heritage and culture institutions with an efficient and comprehensive management solution.”
