London, 14th November 2007. Today, Nick Dimant (Managing Director) and Jonathan Field (Technical Director) announced the launch of PTFS Europe, a company formed to distribute and support the software products of PTFS, Inc., the leading provider of digital arching solutions in North America.

The flagship PTFS product is ArchivalWare, a web-based, full-text search and retrieval system for digital libraries. ArchivalWare empowers organisations wishing to store, access, and manage digital archive collections. Source formats include digital documents, books, news clippings, photographs, video and audio collections and other electronically published material.

Nick Dimant said "Following my time at SirsiDynix as Sales Director, I looked at the marketplace to find a "best of breed" technology that would benefit from a local presence in the UK. I am convinced that with ArchivalWare I have found just such a product. I am very impressed both by the quality and functionality of the software and also by the professionalism and enthusiasm of the PTFS team in the USA. I am sure that together we will ensure this new project will be a great success. I am delighted to be joined in this venture by Jonathan Field, formerly Director of Product Management at SirsiDynix. I have enjoyed working with him for over 15 years. He has tremendous technical flair together with a great rapport for customers."

PTFS Europe is able to provide the full range of services needed to implement a digital archival solution, ranging from initial help defining the scope of the opportunity through to project management, installation, configuration, data conversion, training and ongoing customer support. PTFS Inc. will be able to assist by providing its unrivalled expertise in the provision of digitisation and content conversion services. ArchivalWare integrates with many leading library management systems but is also of relevance to a broader user community - in fact, any organisation seeking to manage its digital collections should take a look at ArchivalWare. PTFS Europe can also offer a general consultancy service to the library world by capitalising on the wealth of experience gained by its founder members since the early 1990's with Sirsi Limited. John Yokely, Chief Executive Officer of PTFS Inc. said "For some time now we have been seeking to expand our presence in Europe. I firmly believe that in Nick and Jonathan we have found the team that will enable us to achieve that goal. We intend to support them all the way."
