galleryManager is one of the first software solutions to look at inventory management exclusively from a Web perspective. This is not a Web add-on to a desktop program; this is pure online gallery management, accessed entirely through a Web browser and programmed with the latest in secure website technology.
We are import experts. If you have an existing database—ArtSystems, Artbase, Access, Filemaker etc.—we can import it. Please contact us for an estimate.
Gallery Inventory and Collections Management
Who We Are
galleryManager was developed by exhibit-E, a unique design and technology firm that has taken a leadership role in providing websites for the art world. galleryManager is an online inventory management system for your gallery, accessible from any computer or tablet with internet access. The system was designed to be intuitive and user-friendly. It is a highly secure online system that has been thoroughly Beta tested by ADAA Member galleries.
Manage Your Information Beautifully
galleryManager developed from the idea that we could reduce the headaches that we found many of our clients experienced with their old inventory management software. Designed to replace those systems, galleryManager is a Web-based solution for tracking everything from contacts and transactions to artwork, invoices, purchase orders and much more, and it is accessible online from any computer or mobile device with internet access.
On Your iPad
With galleries attending over half a dozen art fairs a year, on-the-go access to inventory is essential. That's why we created the galleryManager iPad app. It's free for all galleryManager subscribers. This is an ideal tool for offline viewing and presenting select groups of artworks and information while on the go. It syncs automatically with your galleryManager account—no exporting or uploading files or jpegs.
A Natural Tool
Customized for Art World Users
We designed galleryManager to meet the needs of the galleries—a fast, secure, and easy to use system customized for art world Users. The size and turnover of gallery staff demands simplicity of technology and quick and easy training. Galleries want a system that does not require taking courses to understand, and a mobile system that allows access to their most important assets when traveling.
Always in Sync
Secure In the Cloud
Hurricane Sandy revealed the fragile nature of location-based inventory management systems. There were quite a few galleries that did not anticipate what a good soaking would do to their database. With waterlogged servers sitting in the gallery, and lost data, those galleries were out of commission. As an encrypted web-based application, galleryManager keeps your data safe and secure in the cloud. And with daily granular back-ups there's no need to worry.
Managing Your Contacts and Artwork
Art World Experts
We worked closely with a range of international galleries to design a better inventory management system. During the Beta phase we listened to our Users and added the best ideas into the product. Because of this we like to say galleryManager has been designed by the galleries—an essential tool for managing contacts, artworks, shipping, consignments, loans, offers, creating lists, documents and reports and more.
Easier Inventory Management
Intuitive & Easy
Check the ownership history or provenance of artworks. Keep in control of your most important assets and track 'who did what and when' in the system. Instantly update appraisals or insurance values. Know the cost of photographing, framing, hanging, restoration, and shipping. Securely access your inventory in real-time, online from anywhere in the world.
