Biteca, created in 2006, is a company dedicated to the organization and administration of deposits of information of any type or format with the twofold aim of contributing to companies resource optimization and of increasing efficiency and openness levels in organizational processes. We have often worked with many entities in Colombia in three main fields: implementing solutions for scientific journals, libraries and documentation centers of different levels, advising and developing open source applications, and digitizing documents.

In this period several new products arose: OCS, OMP, Active Collab, Dspace, and Eprints. New partners were integrated into the company, a new software for libraries (Koha) was brought into service, and new strategic alliances with other companies in the sector were established in order to carry out products for different costumers. Biteca was then the first Latin American company to become PKP Bronze Sponsor. Since then, we have also sponsored Crossref and COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics).
