Professional Services

If you have requirements that go beyond what is routinely offered as part of technical support, or you’d like to extend the capabilities of CatDV, you might be interested in our Professional Services offerings.

CatDV Professional Services can build new CatDV components and features, as well as help with custom deployment and configuration.

In addition to flexible, completely tailored services, we have packaged a number of our most frequently provided services into new ‘products’. These are described below …

Integration And Configuration

CatDV provides a rich and powerful set of media management tools and has been designed to be as open and extensible as possible. We also provide detailed guidance and sample workflows in our Tutorials section of the web site.

At the same time, we recognise that not everyone has the time or skills in house to perform integrations themselves. Square Box Professional Services can therefore provide a high quality, custom solution, tailored to your precise needs , with all the advantages of a fully bespoke solution but for a fraction of the cost.
