Opening a new art gallery or other art or antiques business? Looking to upgrade your
existing business management software? Read on for some important
points to consider.
what kind of system does An art or antiques business need?
The most important tool for an art or antiques business is a relational-database
information management software system. A quality relational-database
system saves untold amounts of staff time by recording, automatically
cross-linking, tracking essential information in one easily accessible place, with no need to enter any information more than once. A quality system generates concise and comprehensive reports, documents, and labels, and is able to easily share information with other applications, a Web site, and, if desired, customers, vendors, or partners. With this kind of system, users can
quickly and automatically perform tasks that were once
complicated and time-consuming, including many that before were
not even possible.
WHY A QUALITY SYSTEM?
No matter how you look at it, art and antiques businesses run
on huge amounts of detailed and interrelated inventory, contact,
and other business information. How accurately this information
is recorded, clearly it is organized, and efficiently it works together to automate information management tasks is all critical to success. System
performance is so important to gallery operations that the system
utilized should be the best available: well proven, comprehensively
supported, and designed specifically for complete fine art or
antiques gallery management.
WHAT does A QUALITY SYSTEM DO?
A good system integrates contacts, inventory, transactions and
accounting. It automates as many information
tasks as possible: recording and tracking works, managing contacts and mailings,
generating labels, lists, and reports, creating transactions and
invoices… pretty much everything imaginable, in the most
efficient manner, and in ways particular to the industry's accepted
best practices. The 'relational' capacity of the database
means that related records (artist-artwork-invoice-buyer) are
only a click away, and any mistakes made in repeated names or
terms only need to be corrected once to update the entire system.
Often-used pre-filtered lists ('available Warhol Prints', 'New York Clients') can be saved to a drop-down selection. A quality system also ties
a business together by successfully integrating other business-critical
software packages such as QuickBooks Pro, email programs, and
a gallery's website and iPads.
Does a better system mean a better business?
What business could not be made better by better management? And as few businesses rely more heavily on related information than do art and antiques galleries, information management is a crucial activity in these and like businesses. In considering an information management system, one thing is for sure: the better designed,
more powerful, and more integrated a system, the more successful
a business can be. As such, it does not seem too much to say that establishing stability, increasing efficiency, and enhancing the power of information are critical factors in the level of success of a new or established art or antiques business. In any event, this is definitely not the place to cut
corners or try to 'do it yourself'.
So what is in a quality system?
- Robust software technology to
make it strong, stable, flexible, and powerful
- Comprehensive features that are
useful and efficient, built by true software developers and refined over many years by the
- Intelligent, elegant, and sophisticated software design to make it intuitive and efficient
- Deep company and staff experience
in gallery management, computers, and software programming
- A large base of successful users
proving the system's quality and ensuring its long-term future
