Frontis was launched in 2008, allowing the publication of both structured and unstructured website content for intelligent searching. Because it is deployed as a software as a service it is particularly of use to small voluntary organisations such as family history societies and historical organisations who do not have an IT infrastructure and sometimes struggle to find a simple way of publishing their records and archives to reach a wider audience. Its design and functionality was based on The UK National Archives standard for EDRMS (known as TNA 2002).
A number of heritage organisations use the Frontis system, including the UK's leading Genealogical Society the Society of Genealogists; and Frontis powered sites currently publish over 20 million records on-line (2012 figures).
