DEVENTit is going to develop an archive management system for Digipolis. Digipolis is a Flemish association for inter-municipal cooperation for telematic services. The archive management system is being developed for the Gent city archive and other East Flanders municipalities and PCSW’s. This is done through a partnership of Digipolis with piva eGov, the provincial internally independent agency for support of local e-government within East Flanders.
With this assignment is chosen for Atlantis, DEVENTit’s product for collection management and portal construction. With this fully web-based solution, a platform is being established at which the PCSWs (Public Centers for Social Welfare), municipalities and the Ghent city archive can host, manage and make their archive available to employees and the general public.
“The Atlantis package has been elected after a broad exploration of available archive management solutions,” said Bart Stichelmans, project manager at Digipolis. “From the offerings, Atlantis, the solution of DEVENTit, proved to be best suited to our needs and requirements with a good price / quality ratio.”
“We are very pleased with the award of this assignment,” says Peter van Diermen, director of DEVENTit. “The Atlantis platform to be realized, can be used by more than 60 organizations. We were already expanding in Belgium, and this assignment is a big step forward. ”
By choosing Atlantis, the Flemish organizations will have a full web-based solution. This can be used in addition to managing and making archives for other collections such as image banks, printed and handwritten sources, audiovisual material, etc. Also, easy entry for organizations of smaller municipalities is provided.
