Accessible from any computer or mobile device, galleryManager brings the future of inventory and collections management to the art world today.
Manage Your Information Beautifully
A Better System
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.
galleryManager + exhibit-E
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. With the release of 2.0, galleryManager seamlessly integrates with exhibit-E websites—push artworks to your website and manage both systems from the same dashboard.
On Your iPad/iPhone
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/iPhone 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
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. We designed galleryManager to meet the needs of the galleries—thoroughly Beta tested by ADAA Member galleries the system is fast, secure, and easy to use and customized for art world Users.
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.

What our clients say...
“The import from Artsystems was very smooth considering all the data that we had. The galleryManager program is easy to use and highly organized, and the team has done a great job in customer support. With our website fully integrated with galleryManager, we find the tools to update our website very easy. We highly recommend galleryManager and exhibit-E to all galleries for their inventory system and for all website needs!”
“We have grown with galleryManager and are always impressed by the platform’s tools for organizing artworks and transactions. galleryManager continues to respond to the needs of the industry, and our gallery’s specific needs for robust archival and cataloging tools with an easy and beautiful interface.”
“I think the combination of galleryManager and the exhibit-E website integration is awesome. Totally awesome. Rarely does a solution add real business value out of the box. I am so impressed.”
“galleryManager is an exceptionally user-friendly platform for organizing our inventory. It never sacrifices intuitive navigation for its depth of customization, and the galleryManager team has always been responsive and communicative to our requests. As our needs evolve and grow, so does that of the software.”
“galleryManager has been incredibly easy for all of us to use here at the gallery. I am extremely happy we switched from Artsystems after years of difficulty understanding their program. With our new London gallery opening this year, galleryManager will be a great asset for all of us at Ariadne.”
“The best product ever built for managing an art business. Created by exhibit-E, this world class company is helping the art business advance.”
“We’ve been using galleryManager as a web app and recently as an iPad and iPhone app for the last two years after a colossal crash of our database in Filemaker Pro. galleryManager’s allowance for multiple users from any computer simultaneously has been indispensable to this studio. The clean and clear design is only surpassed by its ease of use. galleryManager is a must have database app for any artist or gallery serious about collections management.”
“galleryManager has been a life-saver for us! When Garvey|Simon first formed, I was running back and forth between running an art advisory business in New York and a pop-up gallery in the Midwest; galleryManager allowed us to seamlessly stay connected with our contacts, inventory, and sales in all locations. The web-based software has made a huge difference— and it is an incredible value compared to the other gallery management software programs available. Our exhibit-E website and galleryManager are two online tools we wouldn't want to be without.”
“Your system puts all others to shame.”
