tATOO service

tATOO is a software package that enables databases on CD-Rom and DVD-Rom by different editors to be shared, with different interrogation software, centralising the management of the same. Through the local network and/or via the Internet, the service makes the databases distributed on CD-Rom and DVD-Rom installed on a special server available by means of an organisation in an easy-to-consult menu.
