Incorporating technological changes can be a daunting task, requiring a high level of expertise and appropriate means. Our group offers a highly qualified team and the most advanced technical support to address, among others, the following issues:
Information management based on free software in digital environments.
Management and maintenance of tools based on free software (Plone, Joomla, DSpace ...) websites. This service is especially useful for those companies requiring the publication of diverse content by multiple authors, simultaneously, concurrently, and controlled. Currently, we manage the maintenance of several publications of this kind.
