Qulto® is the essence of our two-decades expertise gained in the field of cultural heritage and knowledge management IT. We unify our cultural and science related software, hardware and content solutions (named as ‘cultware’) under this brand, which together make up a coherent whole.

We have established a cooperation with SAYISAL GRAFIK company at the ANKOS 2017 conference. At the event we decided to create an e-resource platform for academic libraries in Turkey, which was later implemented as Sayisal Kitap. In 2022 we succeeded to renew and further extend the offerings of the platform which is now available in the most renowned libraries in the country. From the Qulto point of view this cooperation is very successful, we are envisioning more mutual cooperation to start.

In the past few years we have developed a whole ecosystem of software (proprietary Qulto and open-source software) that is designed to assist digital humanities and research processes alike. The Qulto Research Infrastructure is a distributed and virtual, domain-independent research infrastructure that provides essential support for the digitization, storage, organization, retrieval, publication, reuse, and search for relevant sources and plagiarism of higher education and research content.

The platform has been created by connecting the Qulto research infrastructures, developed with the professional assistance of the Department of Digital Humanities at Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Humanities, Budapest, with the support of the National Laboratory of Digital Heritage, and deeply embedded in the Hungarian national scientific space.

The above consortium has created a hardware and software infrastructure for the artificial intelligence-based processing, research, education and publication of national cultural heritage using proprietary language processing applications.

The QULTO and DH-LAB integrated research infrastructure provides the following tools:
