“It was a great pleasure for me and my colleagues to have had the opportunity to use the ArcheTOM tool, as it proved instrumental in giving us a closer grip of the static process decomposition from the eTOM level 0 to the lowest level available and to enable us with great ease to become familiar with the detail definitions of processes and more specifically their extended descriptions. Our encouragement goes to the Architelco team who works continuously to deliver improved versions of ArcheTOM.”

Hyperlinks can also be attached, they can point to any Internet URLs, but they can also be linked to Intranet data or files.
