Collection, asset & object management made easy in one tool.

Digital technologies are transforming what the museum is and does and, even more important, what the technologies enable museums to do in the future. The GLAM sector (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) need both collections management and digital asset management processes to enable user friendly digital solutions and services

Only few vendors offer open-source collections information management system (CMS) and digital asset management system (DAM) in one system for museums, trusts, foundations and historical organisations. The solutions today need to be multilingual, browserbased and accessible especially in Europe from any internet-enabled computer, tablet, or smartphone. 

Now it's time for museums to utilise both Digital Asset Management and Collection Management Systems features.

What kind of basic tools are needed to secure success in the new norm of the digital age? Well, at least museums need modern IT Systems to manage objects using a modern Collection Management System (CMS), and Digital Asset Management (DAM) is becoming a imperative for nonprofits that communicate with donors and media via visual assets.

Is adapting new digital technology and visual communication becoming a game changer at museums?

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced museums to get creative relatively quickly, developing virtual tours and more programming that is accessible from home - engaging individuals far and wide.

Museums are moving towards a preference for visually appealing content versus pages of text, which just doesn’t grab the consumer’s attention the way short videos, virtual tours and image-heavy content can. Imagery of the museum’s exhibitions and events is used to encourage more visitors and donors to support the mission.
