A sleek, Cloud-based digital collections solution: MONTAGE offers cost-effective,
online storage of your exclusive data, allowing collections to be developed and shared online instantaneously.
Easy, fast setup
Upload your digital documents, photos, and archives in a matter of minutes – not days or weeks. Our simple startup process uses a straight-forward industry-standard data structure called Dublin Core, which allows even untrained volunteer staff to get started fast. Once established, staff can build multiple data structures for different collections or item types.
Smart workflows & sleek UI
You have full control and flexibility to design workflows around your needs, whether you need to customize controls for certain staff, or implement review/approval cycles. Plus, our beautiful interface allows for quick and robust searches (with filter and browse options) that can be shared via email or social media.
Integration with existing infrastructure
MONTAGE easily integrates with any of your existing infrastructure using our open API or the Z39.50 protocol.
