I have found them to be interested in what we are doing and willing to work with us to ensure that the software is matching our needs. We are a small gallery and so our needs parallel but they have been actively engaged.
This product was recommended to me by a colleague who also oversees a relatively small art collection. As soon as I contacted them they immediately responded with a helpful demonstration and answer to all my questions. The product is very intuitive, easy to navigate, and has a clean look. It also allows easy posting to social media. There is the additional advantage of reporting in various formats that allow for inventory analysis. A great product!
One minor issue is that there is not an easy way to distinguish historical artists from current contacts, as all are tracked in a "contacts" tab. Not a big deal, really, but you do need to ensure that you're completing the profile. It would also be nice if viewers who visit the public profile could see a biography of an artist that you may have entered in the contact profile.
Thank you Christopher! We have very much enjoyed working with you and the Blackfriars' collection. We're so glad to hear that the product is intuitive and easy to navigate. And it sounds like you're getting a lot out of the program with reporting and sharing. As for your artist bio feedback, it's great and actually something we have been discussing as a teamhow can we continue to share and highlight the artists within a collection in addition to their artworks. If you'd like to differentiate between living and deceased, you can create Contact Groups within Contacts. It is much like Collections for Pieces in that you can create any type of group you wish.

This software is extremely user friendly and has so many usable features that have already increased the visibility of our permanent and rotating exhibits. Artist profitability has increased dramatically since we implemented this system. And sharing information is so much easier than our old system. The cost is extremely affordable in comparison to other systems out there. Another feature that helped us make our decision was the number of active users you can have on the account and customizable restrictions. Even though the thought of migrating over 4,000 records and associated images was daunting, the customer service team was right there to help every step of the way. All in all we are extremely satisfied.
User friendly, ease of use, multiple users with restrictions capability, public portal to share collections, customer service, attractive interface, openness of Artwork Archive to suggest new features.
It is hard to say because I am still learning to use the system efficiently. Customizable drop down menus would be a nice feature.
WOW! Thank you Jennifer for the glowing review! We are so thrilled to play a (small) part in the success of your impressive and inspiring arts and healing program. Thank you for choosing us and we are so glad to be a part of your journey.

Artwork Archive makes daily collections management tasks much easier and quicker than other programs I have used. The layout is very user-friendly, and the guest-view side of Artwork Archive looks amazing. As an academic museum, we have many undergraduate and graduate student workers come through, and this program is friendly enough that anyone can feel confident using it in no time.
This software is easy to learn and is a very user-friendly way to introduce collections management to student. I'm an undergraduate student, and this program is much easier to navigate than others my museum has used in the past. There are so many great features, and the Artwork Archive team is highly receptive to feedback to improve their product. I'm proud to be able to list my knowledge of Artwork Archive on my CV.
There are some categories that I wish could be added when labeling/categorizing your artwork. It is best set up for galleries or private artists at the moment, but they are expanding features to better serve museums all the time.
Thanks for the review Lauren! We're always improving our platform for all of our users including museums. As collection management needs change in this digital era, we want to make sure our tools do as well! - The Artwork Archive Team

I do understand the presentation and workflow of the Artwork Archive. However, I discontinued my use with the product as it seemed unnecessary. However, I do have a belief that they can change their options in the future.
This product review actually resonates perfectly as part of my career involves organizing visual archives. I decided to give this product a chance to shine as I was curious about what it would present. I do enjoy the clean, minimalistic appearance it prides itself in. In addition, I find myself inspired by its ease of guidance with a tutorial-listic approach to instructing its users.
I feel that, because this software gives off the impression of a community-based site, I do wish it would carry an option for users to showcase their work at a more open portal in a free plan (where they can share their work, without having to pay a large sum just to do so). It would be fair enough to provide a free plan to show your work, with limited options.
Thanks for the feedback Lauren. We'd love to hear more from you and will be reaching out directly so that we can continue to improve upon our product and experience for our users.

I'm a new company and it provides me the tools to manage consignment art effectively and at a reasonable cost. What I truly appreciate about Artwork Archive is that I get the sense that this team is 100% behind their mission of supporting artists. The team seems to really care. I understand technology and how it works. The ease of use of course was a factor but I was sold on their passion for artists.
It's easy to use. I like the inventory management features for artwork. It allowed me to put my new small business online in a cost effective manner. The reports are amazing. I like the fact that the company is constantly upgrading the software.
I would like more information about how to handle consignments. Formatting options for reports would be great. I'm not really sure how to effectively use exhibitions. I would like to but it's not clear. I would like to archive photos and information about exhibitions that have already occured.
Thank you for the lovely review Mary. We are indeed passionate about supporting artists and the creative sector. I saw your note about Exhibitions and we'd be happy to help you use the tool to organize and archive your shows.
