Malcolm Howitt, previously Axiell Business Manager for Calm, has been appointed Managing Director of Axiell CALM. He says, “At Group level in Axiell we reviewed how to offer the best service to the archives and museums sector. The new organisational structure gives us the opportunity to develop and expand on the range of solutions we can offer to clients in the UK and internationally, and signals our intention to continue to support them in building the best services possible for their own user communities.”
He adds, “From a product and services perspective, this is a very positive step by the board of Axiell Group in acknowledging the strength of the Calm brand, investing in a growing portfolio for the future, and aiming to strengthen Axiell as the Cultural Services partner of choice.”
More than 400 archives and museums use Calm as their collection management system, including the Parliamentary Archives, Surrey History Centre, Transport for London and the Wellcome Library.
The new company will continue to operate from Axiell UK’s head office in Nottingham, from where services such as administration, support and development will continue to be delivered.
Axiell Limited is part of the wider Axiell Group AB which provides products and services to the Cultural Services sector across the UK and in Scandinavia. Axiell Group is a supplier of IT systems and services dedicated to libraries, archives and museums and places great emphasis on development.
