Active digital preservation for government

Meet your mandate to preserve and provide transparency for vital and permanent government records.

Protecting our records of government

Trusted by institutions at all levels of government, Preservica includes everything you need to preserve, flexibly manage and provide secure access to essential as well as historically significant government records – in one integrated and fully supported application.

It’s a proven solution that is enabling government archivists and records managers to ensure vital records remain accessible for decades (often permanently), as well as deliver greater transparency and FOI, improve citizen services through secure public and internal access, and meet long-term privacy obligations like GDPR.

This means not just protecting cultural, social and historically significant digital content but also a vast array of vital long-term government records spanning social care, planning, land, infrastructure, the environment, transportation and democratic decision-making.
