Navy archives with Tower
Archive management software developer Tower Software is hoping a recent contract with the US Navy Marines will enlist more international sales for the Australian-based company.
Tower was selected to integrate its TRIM Captura platform into seven sites for the US Navy Marine Archives, with an estimated value of $300,000 for the software alone.
The military records division required a Department of Defense 50015.2 Certification which Tower's software was able to provide. The sale will enable the military to manage its electronic documents, paper records, film, microfilm, as well as other data sources, Tower officials said.
