Paperless Partnership Press Release

08 January 2019 - For Immediate Release

PaleoWest Archaeology and Codifi Paperless Solutions have announced a partnership to use digital technology to revolutionize the practice of archaeology in cultural resource management (CRM) and beyond. This partnership highlights Codifi’s position as the premier platform for paperless archaeology.  PaleoWest is the nation’s only coast-to-coast archaeology firm, and the partnership with Codifi takes its already industry-leading digital systems to a new level, providing a unified platform for collection, analysis, and delivery of archaeological data on both compliance and research projects across the U.S.

“Through this Codifi partnership, we’ve linked arms with a brilliant firm that shares PaleoWest’s passion for innovating and bettering the practice of archaeology,” said Tom Motsinger, PaleoWest Founder and President.

The Codifi team is working with SHPOs and other state and federal agencies nationwide to design and provide the most extensive, cost-effective, and simple system for paperless archaeology in the world. The partnership with PaleoWest demonstrates that Codifi meets the needs of even the largest, most exacting archaeology firms in US.

“We couldn’t be happier with this collaboration,” echoed Michael Ashley, co-founder of Codifi. “The PaleoWest team has been generous with their deep knowledge and experience of both fieldwork and business strategies, helping us to shape the Codifi platform and roadmap to serve the most urgent needs of our discipline.”

In an effort to create a unified platform in CRM, PaleoWest and Codifi have agreed to make the platform non-exclusive and available to all. Resources, best practices and technical guidelines will be shared online and through conferences and training opportunities, including internships.

Initially, PaleoWest and Codifi are creating a comprehensive archaeological data-recording system compliant with California requirements. Other states will follow thereafter, with PaleoWest’s project workflow systems to be supported by the Codifi platform nationwide by the summer of 2019.
