Metadata Capture

Customise your Metadata capture for faster and more accurate search results, saving you time and resources. We can automate your metadata capture with our secure in-house validation and verification processes.


Choose the right provider for your metadata project

Almost all records contain some sort of meaningful data that identifies what the document is about. It might be an account number, name, address etc. In a database, these can be captured to identify and locate digital items, such as files and images.

| Understanding how to use Metadata can make it easier to understand, organise and access your own data.


Understanding Metadata and how it can help your Organisation

Tools such as optical character recognition (OCR) can assist in automating metadata capture. We can help you with indexing and verification, and using OCR will reduce the cost and time needed to import metadata information correctly.

OpenDiscover offers your staff secure access to a scalable data repository.

Enhanced Searchability

Metadata can make your digital content more searchable by adding keywords and tags that help search engines and databases find and display your content more accurately.

Improve Productivity

Metadata can help you categorise and organise your digital files, making it easier to locate and manage them. This can save you time and effort when searching for specific files.

Improved Accessibility

Metadata can help to identify content. You will be able to identify ownership, date, and copyright information, making it easier for others to use and share your data appropriately.

Improved Security

Metadata can help track and monitor digital files, providing critical information about access and permissions. Control who can view, edit and share your data.
