DAM for Cultural Heritage
Digital access for enhanced engagement
Increased digital experiences is an important trend for cultural heritage organizations. This was already set in motion before the pandemic, and it has only increased over the last few years. However, much of the digital infrastructure simply can’t provide this. It’s common for cultural heritage software to be several generations old with a user interface that feels both old and overly complicated.
Additionally, many existing CH applications fall down in some important areas of integration. Modern standards for metadata interchange are frequently missing, as is API integration. The tools that were designed for controlled access by institution staff were just not designed for widespread access.
A full repository
Tandem Vault can provide an excellent array of services for CH institutions, large and small. If you are looking for an application to house a digital repository, we’ve got excellent capabilities. TV3 can support very large collections of items in multiple formats. We support the creation or import of taxonomies with robust contextual tools. And we can support any schema that suits your collection. Our network of internal and external linking gives your stakeholders the opportunity for spontaneous discovery.
Enhance your current system capabilities
We know that the CH world can move slowly. And we also know that the investment of time, effort and institutional practice makes system migration a slow process. If your current system has limitations you want to address, we can probably help fill those gaps at a fraction of the cost of full system migration. These gaps could include integration with other applications, taxonomy/folksonomy enhancements, embedded metadata management and group-based access.
Stakeholder capabilities and engagement
We can also provide you with stakeholder engagement tools. We are designed for end-user curation, letting your staff, associates and visitors interact with the material for fun or research. We can even enable and crowdsource submissions of media and metadata for further engagement.
Full-features trials, scalable cost
Unlike most CH software, we allow you to road test a real copy of the software, for free, without a high-pressure sales process, endless meetings, or a lot of undefined buzzwords. Take a look at the capabilities of a modern, forward-looking collection management system.
And if you’re a small institution, we have even better news. There is simply no other application with our Enterprise-grade capabilities that starts at $1200/year.T
