Soutron Global announced on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 that aftermarket semiconductor manufacturer Rochester Electronics, LLC has selected Soutron “to securely manage the Intellectual Property Archives at Rochester Electronics.” Rochester Electronics is headquartered in Newburyport, Massachusetts and has sales offices throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
“The management of the Intellectual Property Archives at Rochester Electronics requires an extremely flexible database with strong security. Soutron Global did not flinch at our requirements and was genuinely interested in the success of our very non-traditional library,” stated Teresa Powell, IP Archives Technical Librarian of Rochester Electronics. “I am confident that our partnership will result in the robust catalog and tight access control that we have promised to our clients.”
Soutron Global stated it “provides a flexible, yet secure Digital Access Management Solution for storing digital assets such as Intellectual Property materials that do not conform to a typical catalogue record. Fields can be defined and added at any time, allowing meta-data specific to the digital asset to be recorded and assigned as needed.”
“Any type of digital content can be described to the system quickly and easily without any need for IT support,” stated Graham Beastall, Soutron's Managing Director.
Soutron Global provides a variety of configurable security settings to control the request and use of content such as protection for viewing and downloading material.
“The capability to securely manage digital assets is built into the core of Soutron,” stated Soutron Global President & CEO, Tony Saadat. “Rochester's selection of Soutron Global confirms that when you partner with Soutron to manage your library transformation, you will witness our passionate commitment to your success."
