IDEA Arc – bridges the gap between the Analogic past & the Digital future

IDEA Arc is a full out of the box solution for all the needs of management and exposure of the archival information of the organization, from the absorbing materials and its cataloging in the system, searching and locating information, to displaying it in different ways. Using this system allows cultural heritage institutions and archives to assess, organize, describe, preserve and provide access to the archival collections and divisions.
One of the distinct advantages of the system is its support of leading standards – ISAD.G and EAD that will enable your archive the exchange of information with other archives around the world engaged in similar fields, while increasing your exposure to the world.

The infrastructure

The system is based on IDEA ALM infrastructure; the advanced system for managing databases, that serves as a platform for integrating IDEA’s three vertical solutions – IDEA Arc, IDEA Lib and IDEA Muse.
The management of the various information data banks is performed on one common database, using uniform and professional terminology and work processes, with the possibility of retrieving the information at any time, thus allowing transparency, accessibility and advanced management of all the information and knowledge in the organization.
The system includes all management tools, including cataloging, conservation, building logical connections, as well as exposure and retrieval of different materials in various formats. You can work and search within one database (archive) or multiple databases at the same time (Archive, Library and Museum), in order to obtain wide and rich information or filtered and focused information.
The ability to manage the archive, library and museum on one database, and at the same time maintain a complete suitability of terminology, standards and work procedures, to each area, is the winning combination of IDEA ALM. This integrated product offers our customers a flexible and dynamic way to develop value-added service, both for the organization staff, and its users.

The release of upgraded versions from time to time, the system flexibility, and the ability to adapt to the changing needs of the organization and the open architecture for additions are the guarantee of your investment in the system for many years to come.
The integration of the advanced IDEA Arc system, with the extensive experience of Idea’s professional staff in implementing projects in archives and cultural heritage institutions is a guarantee for the success of the projects and the satisfaction of our customers.
We invite you to join the family of Idea’s customers and “trust your heritage in our hands”
