Frontis Archive Publishing System is a content management system and electronic document and records management system (EDRMS) and is primarily used for publishing historical archives on-lines for researchers to search.

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 an 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).
