What Our Customers Say
Suzanne Keyte, Archivist
Royal Albert Hall
“We had a lot of information that we needed to store in a very logical way and we wanted to make that available to the public. For the first time in the Hall’s 140 year history we were able to make that history public.”
The Wellcome Trust: Exploring the connections between medicine, life and art
“The solution goes with the flow of what archivists do. I find that it handles the complete workflow for an archivist efficiently and effectively. I can get an instant visual representation of the complete archive, which I find extremely valuable, and adding the strong support for managing digital born content, Calm really is a solution any archivist would benefit from working with.”

The Motor Museum Trust Project: Keep Calm and STEAM ahead
The project will extend the use of Axiell’s Calm collections management system at the Museum and support research on little-used parts of the vast collections, including technical material held in the Motoring Reference Library and Object Collection.
Unlocking this fascinating information will provide content for the Museum to create a range of new school and family activities. It will build on the Museum’s Education Service and support education programmes linked to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) in response to recent changes in the National Curriculum.
