“We have enjoyed a very good experience in our work with Africa Media Online. At each stage of the project they provided valuable input into the requirements and resource planning. They provided specialist skills in terms of the archive systems and workflows. Their team of specialists on site were professional, diligent and hard working. The systems they provided were of a high quality, robust and capable of adaptation to meet the functionality required of our project.”
“I would advise that Africa Media Online can be trusted to provide archive consultancy that can be trusted. Their services and products are first class and reliable. Basically your project will be in safe hands!”

I absolutely loved the pictures! From the artistic point of view, the pictures are amazing and the artifacts themselves are really unique!

“With the demonstrated experience in handling such objects, Africa Media Online was the obvious choice for the work. I am happy to say that the company did not disappoint. The work was completed with professionalism and dedication.”
“Africa Media Online did not only complete the work in line with this scope of work, but went beyond this by offering continuous support after the work was completed. I am happy to say that we were more than pleased with the work completed. I would therefore recommend Africa Media Online for any digitization work, especially in the digitization of heritage objects.”
Robyn Gruijters, Archivist, Michaelhouse
“My experience of working with Africa Media Online has been professional and timeous execution. They are knowledgeable and informed in terms of trends, policies and latest archiving methods – particularly relating to digitisation. They may be pricey but are worth the money spent.”
“David Larsen has been of enormous help and assistance with the establishment of our digital repository. Apart from the digitisation work we have carried out with them, he has always been a great source of knowledge and can often recommend those who can best assist us.”
