Haplo provides rich repository functionality combined with integrated workflow and extensive reporting.

"Remarkably flexible...
A major advance in repository software."

Single repository for all research

Haplo provides a single repository for all research, enabling all research outputs related to a project to be stored together and searched simultaneously.

Haplo’s flexible data model can represent any type of information and manage datasets, traditional and non-traditional output types in one repository.

Supporting practice based research

Haplo can support the rich variety of research outputs from practice based research due to its highly flexible metadata, configurable visual display, and elegant collections and portfolio functionality.

Comprehensive research information system

Haplo Repository is an integral part of Haplo Research Manager , a comprehensive research information system.

Haplo provides researchers with a single interface for repository, Graduate School management, Ethics, and more. Haplo is a single system for management of research from project conception through to managing research outputs and making them discoverable.

Supporting REF

Haplo provides integrated support for managing REF exercises. With fully pluggable and configurable processes to fit your institution’s processes, Haplo is the ideal choice for smoothly managing your data to prepare REF submissions.

Clear and simple reports give Unit of Assessment Leads and REF and Repository Managers real-time visibility of the current state of REF readiness.

Sensitive data and processes can be managed within Haplo with confidence, due to Haplo’s ISO27001 certification, and fine-grained permissions ensure only administrative users access confidential information.  

Integrates perfectly

Haplo provides an extensive API for publishing and receiving machine-readable structured data in open formats. As well as standards based APIs, Haplo's open server-side API makes it easy to support custom integrations.

Haplo supports direct harvesting from external services, minimising manual data entry by researchers. Encrypted data is transferred to dedicated preservation services for long-term preservation and storage.

Haplo can integrate with an institution’s authentication systems enabling users to login with their usual username and password, and can receive enhanced information from university HR and Student Record Systems.
