Priced at $195, it allows “one-click” export from axle 2017 software and the axle Gear software-appliance to Digital Bedrock’s concierge archiving service. From the intuitively designed export tool interface, assets (along with their metadata) can be selected using axle’s Approval button, and batch-exported in a file format that can be read directly by Digital Bedrock, for long-term, managed preservation.
