Solutions for Private Collections

Online and Desktop Private Art Collection Software | Collection Website | Collection Viewing App

You’ve assembled a collection. Now how do you look after it?

Think about all the information vital to properly document, appraise, and insure the artwork in your private collection. The basics — image, artist, title, dimensions, media, location, original cost, and insurance value — are probably obvious. But there is much more that should be tracked, and can be tracked, with a carefully selected private art collection software package. For instance, provenance (ownership history), exhibition history, and bibliography are extremely important to prove authenticity and create an accurate appraisal. Incomplete or inaccurate record keeping can cost thousands in inaccurate valuations.

In Collection Management: First Steps, Vivien Ebersman of AXA Art Americas Corporation, outlines many of the crucial tasks in documenting and managing collection information.

By choosing Artsystems software to manage their collection, affiliated company AXA Equitable leads by example; the most efficient means to document, research, manage, and display collection information is a quality relational-database software system.

Indeed, the vast majority of private collectors who use art collection management software agree — including the largest share of the ARTnews 200 top private collectors.


Online and Desktop Private Art Collection Software

Why select Artsystem5 (online) or Artsystems Pro (desktop) private art collection management software over other more rudimentary and less-efficient competitive solutions? Because by integrating collection information and automating nearly every collection management task, Artsystems software both saves untold time and increases accuracy. Critical information is only entered once, and then Artsystems’ powerful tools allow users to leverage it in myriad ways. For instance, Artsystems software generates concise, thorough, and flexible reports and documents — with images — in a click. It works with other applications (including Word and Email) and, if desired, facilitates sharing information with vendors, colleagues, or partners via Artsystems wide range of integrated solutions.


ProFile Private Art Collection Viewing App for iPad/iPhone

Collectors like the integrated Artsystems ProFile mobile artwork display app for iPad and iPhone because it allows them to see all of the works in their collection in an elegant format, and access key artwork and artist information anytime and anywhere, separate from the Pro database software.


Pro Private Art Collection Website

Collectors display their collection with their own customizable Artsystems Pro Website or streamlined Collector Website so they can view their collection from any computer anywhere, and share all or part of it with friends, curators, dealers, or anyone, publicly or privately. See website pricing for the two integrated website options.


Private Cloud Hosting

Collectors who prefer not to utilize the Web to do so implement Secure Private Cloud Hosting in order to allow for remote sharing of their collection database between collection managers and themselves, include automatic online backups, and to remove the danger to the database of mishaps to local networks.


Artsystems Expert Support

Finally, one of the most important reasons collectors select Artsystems is the unparalleled quality of its support, with daily 12-hour live availability and fast response from Artsystems experts who each average over 25 years of art management experience.
