New software hosts the rich heritage of the UK online for the public to see.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB UK) 26 January 2015
Eloquent Systems Inc. has partnered with two very experienced and espected consultants in the UK to introduce their Eloquent Archives™ software. After extensive research the consultants consider the Eloquent application the best solutions for making communities' rich historical archives and digital assets available online for the public.
The Eloquent Archives software is popular across North America for managing archival collections efficiently and putting them online. UK institutions will especially value the following features:
1. Public access to the rich heritage found in the archives is an automatic function of the software. It is easily accessed by Google and other search engines and findings can be shared with social media. Related geographic locations are presented on Google Maps.
2. It supports archival description, accessioning/de-accessioning, controlled vocabulary, custodial management, space management, research request tracking, and other workflow functions.
3. Archivists can choose which international standards they use (DACS, ISAD(G), or RAD).
4. The software is intuitive to use for staff and researchers. Users can easily navigate up and down the hierarchy of descriptive records and download any digital content they require.
5. Eloquent Archives is a fully modular system which allows service to start small and grow. It can be used as a service (SaaS) in the Eloquent Cloud rather than purchasing.
Eloquent Systems Inc. supports the Eloquent WebSuite which contains software for archives, library, museum, and records management. It is based on WebGENCAT, the “database or things” for physical as well as digital asset management (DAM). This integration of applications creates an enterprise content management (ECM) solution where users have only “one place to look” for all resources. Digital items are displayed with a common browser while the exact locations of physical items are displayed.
