DT Partners with CCS
Hamburg/New York City, July 2012
German software company CCS Content Conversion Specialists has just signed a reseller partnership with New York based digitization equipment provider, Digital Transitions.
Digital Transitions will be the exclusive reseller and support contact of CCS's renowned digitization software, docWorks(e) in the United States. This is the first and only software on the market for Digital Libraries and Archives that covers the whole conversion process from the import of the scanned images to the export of meta data enriched files. docWorks(e) is an entry level version of their mass digitization software, docWorks, already being used by library heavyweights such as the Library of Congress and The British Library. U.S. customers of docWorks(e) already include Queens Library and Princeton University.
"We are looking forward to working with Digital Transitions - the leading provider of high-end digitization and scanning equipment in the United States,” said Claus Gravenhorst, Director Strategic Initiatives at CCS. “Digital Transition’s Division of Cultural Heritage serves the same group of cultural heritage institutions and archives and is thus the perfect hardware fit to our software. Now U.S. customers can get the best-in-class hardware and software for their digitization projects as well as receive on-site technical support from the same company."
“Our clients depend on reliable, preservation-level hardware and software solutions that will enable the conversion of their collections,” states Peter Siegel, Director of the DT Division of Cultural Heritage. “After researching the technology players in this sector, we have found that CCS’ docWorks(e) software is the ideal solution for our clients. We are excited to partner with CCS so that we can provide complete preservation level solutions as well as the support they need to enhance their digitization projects even further.”
