The Montpelier Foundation Chooses MediaValet to Secure Its Vast Collection of Historical Material

ORANGE, VA and VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 19, 2014) - The Montpelier Foundation -- the non-profit organization dedicated to bringing to life the home and contributions of President James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, and Dolley Madison, America's 1st First Lady -- has selected MediaValet (TSX VENTURE: MVP) to aggregate, organize, share and secure its vast collection of archaeological, academic, and educational videos, hi-res photos, and brand materials.

A large property with offices spread over more than 2,500 acres, there was a huge opportunity to manage digital assets more securely. "From the museum side which researches and collects historically significant objects and documents, to a very active archaeology program with photos, videos, and maps, to an academic center with a focus on producing high-quality online educational courses and professional development programs, to an education department producing original research, to our communications office, we can be much more efficient and effective by leveraging a powerful system such as MediaValet," commented Jen Howell, Director of Digital Publishing for the Robert H. Smith Center for the Constitution at Montpelier.

"Over the years, each department had come up with a different way of organizing their digital assets," added Howell. "This led to a duplication of effort in recreating assets, version control issues, and general inefficiencies in sourcing and sharing assets."

Montpelier chose MediaValet because it is leading an entirely new generation of digital asset management systems that are forged in the Cloud. Built from the ground up on Microsoft's platform-as-a-service (PaaS) cloud offering, Microsoft Azure, MediaValet makes it easier for organizations, such as The Montpelier Foundation, to securely aggregate, organize, manage, and share their priceless collections of digital assets.

"The access and control we have with MediaValet is ideal. We can organize our assets in the various ways that best serve the unique needs of each of our departments," Howell continued. "We needed a way to quickly filter our assets and make specific sets available to select stakeholder groups. We're pleased to say, MediaValet has allowed us to do everything we wished a digital asset management system would do."

Montpelier is already reaping benefits across the organization, allowing Montpelier staff to spend more time on its mission than wrestling with technology and process issues.
