"When considering how the Digital Archive should be structured, we focused on the big themes we wanted to cover. It was important that individual themes could meet and intersect, making the entire digital collection more cohesive and meaningful, and that’s where Quartex’s discovery layer really helped us."Sarah Jackson, Archivist, Harris County Archives
Where corporate archives exist and are maintained, the ability to publicly tell your organization’s story can be a key factor in achieving consumer trust, competitive advantage, and commercial success.
Publishing selected documents in a digitized, open access corporate archive allows you to tell your organization’s story in a curated way, highlighting key milestones and showcasing the evolution of your brand, market offerings, and community outreach over time.

Your corporate archive, customized to your needs
Unlike some digital collections platforms, Quartex can be significantly customized to your needs, both in the administrative interface (with elements such as internal workflows, metadata schemas, and controls all being customizable) and at the front-end, where your published sites can be styled to replicate your organization’s corporate branding.

The platform has been used by both teams and lone arrangers to successfully build and launch digital collections, as well as providing end users with appealing layouts, intuitive search options, and creative pathways to discovery.
