What is Knowledge Management (KM)? There are almost as many definitions as there are KM practitioners including:

"Knowledge Management (KM) comprises a range of strategies and practices used in an organization to identify, create, represent, distribute, and enable adoption of insights and experiences. Such insights and experiences comprise knowledge, either embodied in individuals or embedded in organizational processes or practice."

Maxus supplies collection management software and consulting services for heritage, art and other collections in a wide range of organisations across Australia and the South East Asian region.

From simple cataloguing on a single computer to a public access internet system, Maxus can supply the software solutions and has the resources to support your system as it grows.


"Thesauri" or "controlled vocabularies", for so many years the domain of librarians and indexers, are now also very important tools in the growing world of metadata. More and more organisations are looking for ways of gaining control over the subject metatags assigned to their documents, intranet pages, web pages and resources used for communications and knowledge management. Designing a well-thought-out taxonomy is a vital step in enabling consistent, meaningful metatagging throughout your organisation.

"If well done, taxonomy will allow for structured Web content, leading to improved information access"


MultiTES Pro , thesaurus construction and management software, makes it easy to create, browse, print and maintain different types of taxonomies and thesauri on a standalone PC or a network. The MultiTES Web Deployment Kit is an add-on product to MultiTes Pro, consisting of a set of tools that enable publishing of a live MultiTes Pro thesaurus on a standard web server, allowing users with any HTML browser to perform dynamic queries.
