Argus Feature Reviews

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

Shannon P.

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

2017-05-04

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

Batch updating and basic data entry are made simple, and most sections are intuitive to use.

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

Our museum converted from Open Edition to Argus.net at the end of 2013. Lucidea has been a responsive resource throughout the experience. For our use, we have been able to take advantage of the backend customization of the program. We have created new templates and adjusted existing ones to better suit the needs of a large institution with an active collection and exhibition plan. For more complex needs, we are able to contract with their R&D team to develop new functionality as well. Overall this is a powerful tool we use daily for managing a large collection.

Pros

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

Cons

The support team is easy to communicate with.

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.
