The Evolution of Digital Collection Archive Software has Arrived
Auto-Graphics, Inc. announces the release of MONTAGEdc
ONTARIO, Calif. — June 22, 2016 — Auto‐Graphics, Inc., Inc., a leading provider of tools, technologies, and software developed to power libraries is pleased to announce the release of their newest product, MONTAGEdc; digital asset management software intended for libraries, historical societies, and museums
MONTAGEdc is extremely easy to use software which is robust, comprehensive, and librarian and archivist friendly. An organization can have a digital collection available for patrons to start viewing immediately after the software is installed. As a web based client and one hundred percent fully scalable to tablets and smartphones, MONTAGEdc breaks the currently stale and outdated digital collection software mold in the industry.
Fonda Owens, Director at La Porte County Public Library in Indiana had this to say about MONTAGEdc. “MONTAGEdc is opening up access to collections that are in demand by our community. Some of the collections are in fragile condition and we feel compelled to preserve them. MONTAGEdc allows us to do this and will give us the opportunity to forge some community collaborations that were not possible before, such as with our local historical museum and local genealogical society.”
The idea behind the development was to bring an enjoyable and aesthetically pleasing product to the market with the intention of allowing an organization to have their digital collections up and viewable within days, not months. In addition, so many of the concerns A-G heard from unsatisfied users of other software was the amount of bloat and additional modules needed in order to accomplish basic tasks. MONTAGEdc provides a complete end-to- end solution without requiring additional upgrades and no add-ons.
Albert Flores, V.P. of Sales at A-G is pleased to have another quality product in A-G’s arsenal to sell. “MONTAGEdc is the next logical evolution of our library automation portfolio. As Auto-Graphics provides services to libraries in both ILS and statewide (ILL or resource sharing) platforms, MONTAGEdc provides an economical, powerful digital collections product that can sit next to or with any existing systems or it can be a module to integrate to a library’s existing ILS or other systems.”
A-G believes digital collection software should not be hard to use nor boring for patrons to look at. They want to inspire organizations wanting to get into digital archiving, or enhance and improve their current digital archiving methods by sharing all the wonderful material they have stored away in back rooms.
