Argus Feature Reviews

3 reviewers had the following to say about Argus's features:

Shannon Parker

A long conversion process but the resulting Collection Management System was worth it.

2017-05-04

The CMS accessible to all Gallery staff, which means there is a great deal of time saved by Registration staff from pulling and compiling different information for other staff members - they're now able to do this themselves. Additionally, with an OPAC system, the general public is able to access the full Gallery collection online and do preliminary research before contacting staff for additional information.

Pros

The ability to tailor the security and access levels to different groups and individuals and the ability to easily share searches among these groups.

Cons

New reports can't be pre-tested in Report Writer for layout functionality and spacing.

Argus.net a great resource for a large, highly active museum collection

2017-03-13

For more complex needs, we are able to contract with their R&D team to develop new functionality as well.

Pros

The ability to handle many different scenarios and types of collections. The customer support is really solid as well.

Cons

There is some functionality that isn't always consistent when building new templates -- the difference between us creating something in house vs something this is hard coded by the designers on the back end, but I am able to submit those to R&D for tweaking and enhancement in future.

Recommendations to others considering Argus

We are self hosted and it is important for us to have local knowledge of the system. For example I am the database admin and I work with our local IT team to manage the servers, etc. We have budgeted for me to receive training in kmBuilder, ViewsDesigner, and Crystal Reports so that I am able to work deeper in the system. For those who do not have this ability, Lucidea would provide this support, but it is important to know the needs and budget of your institution to determine what the best setup would be.
