New Zealand Micrographic Services (NZMS) announces a significant and new partnership with DatacomIT to deliver Recollect, the online community engagement and collection management software to Australia.
NZMS has appointed DatacomIT, the Australian industry leader in digitisation, digital preservation and document management solutions to resell Recollect in Australia. Recollect is a leading platform in online community engagement and collection management designed and developed in New Zealand. This new partnership will allow DatacomIT to offer Australian organisations an opportunity to access a superior product to enrich how they manage their collections and present them to their communities’.
Recollect makes your content easier to discover and access, enabling you to reach out and empower your stakeholder communities, build your identity, enrich your collections, capture and manage new content and discuss new ideas from anywhere in the world with the cloud-based software.
Andy Fenton, Founder and Managing Director at New Zealand Micrographic Services commented on the announcement:
“This is a watershed moment for NZMS and our Recollect platform, having recently implemented our 50th site across New Zealand and Australia we also wanted to give new Australian organisations local representation of our world class cloud-based software. DatacomIT’s pedigree in this space and our long association with, and respect for them, made their appointment an easy choice that we know will be well-received by those seeking to engage their communities’ around their collection, while addressing digital preservation and collection management needs.”
DatacomIT are proudly recognised as approved suppliers on many Australia and State Government ICT and digitisation procurement panels.
Don Beggs, Managing Director at DatacomIT, believes this partnership will not only strengthen our company’s digital preservation offering, but will also serve our greater vision of transforming the future of the industry:
“DatacomIT are confident that Recollect will quickly become a market leader, making it the first choice for any organisation that desires to preserve, access and share precious collections as they migrate their content in the digital world.”
Recollect was launched in Australia in February 2016 and there are now twenty Australian sites that are live or under implementation and supported out of New Zealand. NZMS has exciting growth plans for Recollect and our partnership with DatacomIT allows us to expand our Australian presence while allowing us to enter the North American and European markets.
Existing Australian customers will continue to receive our dedicated service and support direct from New Zealand as DatacomIT focus on introducing new clients to Recollect.
By leveraging each other’s strengths and capabilities, together DatacomIT and NZMS look forward to many successful initiatives, using Recollect to deliver superior collection management solutions and services within Australia to support the long-term viability of historical collections of Cultural Heritage institutions and any organisation interested in accessing, sharing, and the (digital) preservation of their precious content.
