Collector Systems makes collection management easy.

All Collector Systems accounts include free automatic updates, dedicated client support, and the most advanced cloud-based technologies protecting the privacy and security of client data.

Know where your objects are at all times.

  • Make your records precise by adding location levels to record the exact floor, room, or shelf in simple language.
  • Date and time stamp all location updates for accurate logs and chronological location histories for each item.
  • Moving more than one item? Use the batch update tool to simply and efficiently update the location of multiple objects in single step.

Capture detailed condition and conservation data.

  • Maintain a full condition and conservation history for all objects in your collection in one place. Add condition or treatment priority ratings to help with the day-to-day management of the collection.
  • Add images and associated documents to each condition or conservation record. Use the built-in image editor to annotate condition images for additional detail.
  • Create custom condition reports using the built-in report generator. Insert multiple images into all reports to highlight specific condition concerns or conservation techniques.

Print beautiful catalog sheets with large images, or run lists for an inventory report.
