Using Artsystems Pro and Artsystem5 art focused databases

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, Artsystems provides a system with functionality that is extremely well suited to recording, tracking and reporting on everything to do with artworks.

Pros

Having used Artsystems Pro (with Cloud Sync) for a number of years, I was impressed by its wealth of features and attentive support team. Being able to quickly generate custom reports on a searched-for selection of artworks has been invaluable. Our database, which contains a considerable amount of content, including many images and some custom data fields, was then migrated seamlessly from Artsystems Pro to Artsystem5. With Artsystem5, all of the functionality and more has been very successfully moved to a powerful and convenient web-based system.

Cons

Although Artsystems Pro worked very well and was equally well supported, it did require a supervised (video call and remote machine access) update every time Mac OS received a major update. With the migration to the fully web-based Artsystem5 this inconvenience was removed.

Vendor response

Ben, thank you for you review! Always a pleasure working with you and an honor to serve the Estate of Francis Bacon. So glad that you appreciate the convenience and functionality of our new upgraded web-based system, A5, and the seamlessness of the migration. Best, Doug

Excellent Software for the Fine Arts Industry

Reviewed 2 years ago

As a fine art landscape photographer with a growing portfolio and numerous gallery relationships, I found that managing my print inventory with Excel was no longer adequate to my needs. I have adopted Artsystems Pro, and with its flexibility and robust data management capabilities, I know where all of my prints are, and my consignment, invoicing,reporting and contact management workflow is vastly simplified. Software support has been excellent. The savings I have realized from being on top of otherwise-misplaced inventory is well worth the investment cost of Artsystems Pro alone!

Pros

Functionality allows me to eliminate the redundancy of data input and output in different business processes (inventory, consignment, invoicing, reporting, etc.). Easy to learn. Excellent customer support program. Better control of inventory pays for itself.

Cons

No cons in my view. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Ever Evolving Products and Support

Reviewed 3 years ago

I can rely on Artsytems for timely service when needed and for innovating its integrated product lines to support and grow my business over time. This has allowed me to remain focused on my business and serving my clients and artists.

Pros

My gallery has been served by Artsystems since its establishment in 2006. Over the years, we have migrated our database easily to newer and ever improving Artsystems client and data management tools, which connects to and serves the website that Artsystems designed and hosts for us.

Cons

Like all software, it requires updates and adjustments to keep pace with every advancing computer operating systems.

Vital software with great support

Reviewed 2 years ago

We have been using Art Systems for over 20 years. It has been vital as a print publisher to keep track our extensive inventory with their EDITIONS module. It is quite easy to enter new editions considering how complex the software is. It has also been a time saver that they have integrated Quickbooks into their software. We don’t have to double enter invoices into our accounting software. Art Systems new program A5 has been invaluable during the pandemic. Since our database is now cloud based, our entire team was seamlessly able to work from home making invoices, tracking previous sales and having our clients contact information on hand.

Pros

Support is super quick to respond and resolved lightening fast. Since switching to the cloud based system, all support is efficiently handled by emailing a description of the problem. Along the sidelines, the Quality Assurance team fixes it! It’s so simple. Gone are the days of having someone remotely jump on my computer to see what’s going on and taking the time to work with them to resolve. It’s fixed from a distance and they simply let us know all is set. It could not be easier.

Cons

Since they upgraded to their cloud based system, A5 has many more features. We are most certainly not using the new program to it’s full potential but plan to learn and integrate all of its latest features.

Vendor response

Wow! thanks so much, Jill, for your kind and thoughtful review. It's been a pleasure working with you and Larissa for so many years and we are so proud that you have been able to take full advantage of many of the powerful features with our software, including the integration with QuickBooks, the dedicated Editions module, and the <2-hour response and expertise of our experienced support team. Best, Doug

Couldn't image running my business without Art Systems

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I run my art gallery business with Art Systems because it helps me keep my business efficient and effective. I chose Art Systems because Pro Database Software allows me to manage our inventory, our mailing list and our transactions efficiently by connecting all of the data. I post all my financial data to QuickBooks which removes any repeated data entry and provides me with the means to double check...

Cons

There isn't another gallery management software that comes close to what Art Systems provides.

Vendor response

Tom, thank you so much for your review and for helping to improve our products as a true power user. Your support has been critically important to us over the years.
