New times ahead for ArkivDigital – Report from Annual Shareholder’s Meeting

ArkivDigital annual shareholders meeting“Headed toward new times” is the title of Archives Digital’s annual report for 2014.  And ArkivDigital’s Chief Executive Officer, Mikael Karlsson, focused on the new as he presented the forthcoming new product features at the Annual Shareholder’s meeting on May 19th in Lyrestad, Sweden.

A new software program replacing the current “ArkivDigital online” will be launched at Genealogy Days (Släktforskardagarna) in August.   The new program is built using modern technology with a user interface created in the same manner as a web page and displayed with a specially built web browser. A new function will be automatic software upgrades allowing improved versions to be released often without causing user inconveniences.

Another new feature that will be introduced is the capability to manage registers. At Genealogy Days, a searchable name register for Sweden’s entire population for 1950 will be released. Later, a name searchable register for 1960 will be released. The sources for these registers are the tax/population registers (mantal) for 1951 and 1961.  Within a year, there will be a searchable name register for all the household/congregation books for the years 1880-1920 (about).

According to Mikael Karlsson, “These new features will be powerful help tools for all researchers”.

The new program software is a rebuilding of the product. Many new functions are planned for the future such as: better help texts, powerful search possibilities and flexible payment methods, to take a few examples.

Concerning economic development during 2014, there were no unwelcome surprises. Net sales increased by 16 percent to nearly 20 million kronor. The number of subscribers increased 13 percent to nearly 25,000 and the image database grew so that it now includes more than 100 million pages of historical source material. The year’s results were 141,770 kroner (678,511 kroner 2013). The relatively modest profit is explained by the large investments the company is making, among others, personnel costs increased nearly 3 million kronor between 2013 and 2014.

The entire board was reelected which includes Jan Aronson (Chairman), Paul Johansson and Håkan Skogsjö. Folke Brished was appointed as a substitute board member.
