ORKIS is a company created for over 20 years, ORKIS has forged a pioneering profile, since 1991, with the creation of a concept of “multimedia engine”. The innovations followed one another quickly with an increasingly broad resonance, by chaining the “Firsts”: (1) First range of photo library management software deployed at CNES, (2) first version compatible with the web, (3) first integrated suite for managing photo agencies.

Then, since 2012, ORKIS deals with the launch of next generation AJARIS FullWeb.
