Digital preservation

With best practice data treatments and purpose built technology, we ensure your valuable content is digitally preserved to the highest standard and longevity.


Via digitisation or from existing systems, we offer a streamlined process with metadata extraction and file mapping and matching.


Using the power of world's leading open source digital preservation platform - Archivematica - we simplify and automate actions to provide enrichment to data, while normalising files and preparing Archival Information Packages (AIPs).


We have a range of access options available, including instant online access, physical access via a piqlReader and requested access (for offline only information. All data preserved with Piql offers a higher guarantee of access further into the future.
