800+ Clients Have It; You Can Have It Too

Whether a collection is large or small, one thing remains the same: our clients love our software and support. But don’t take our word for it; here’s what they have to say.

“It’s the combination of having the objects, photographs, and the paper records available to students and researchers that truly brings value to our collection. Gallery Systems is an essential partner in our museum’s goals.”

– David DeBono Schafer, Senior Collections Manager, The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University

“Working with Gallery Systems has been amazing. They’ve been helping us configure functionality and processes. Everyone has been so responsive.”

Natalie Lawler, Assistant Collections Registrar and Preparator, Chapman University Art Collections

“Gallery Systems understood our vision which was for eMuseum to be seamlessly integrated into our website; the result was exactly that.”

Sophie Meyers, Collections Project Manager, Delaware Art Museum
“TMS and eMuseum are the foundation of the management of our collection. With the help of TMS, we can extend our information to the public and internal staff alike.”
Lenn Nunn, Head of Information Systems, National Gallery, London

“And of course TMS is a fantastic tool. We’re currently using it to manage a 3-year, wall-to-wall inventory project, and I am excited to see how it will transform both the quality and quantity of data we’ve collected.”

Lindsey Richardson, Curator of Collection, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

“TMS and eMuseum provides a dynamic platform, which enables us to have art registration and communication as one procedure.”

Morten Nybo, Project Manager, Danish Agency for Culture

“With its great potential to collect and store information, TMS can be a “one-stop shopping” resource for research on the museum’s collection, and so much of the data that we now gather on objects in the collection goes directly into TMS.”

Theresa Papanikolas, Curator of European and American Art, Honolulu Museum of Art
“We chose TMS because it was the most robust, intuitive, and responsive of the collections management systems we researched. It has benefited our institution by allowing us to add, track, and report on collection information in ways that it was impossible to do with our previous database.”
- Jennifer Day, Registrar, Indian Arts Research Center
“Working with Gallery Systems’ web team on the Seattle Art Museum’s Chinese Painting and Calligraphy OSCI project meant having highly knowledgeable support and leadership directly from architects of our database systems…”
- Michelle Miller, Registrar for the Collection, Seattle Art Museum
“The positive experience we had using barcoding to facilitate the move has encouraged other departments to adopt similar practices.”
- Larry Felton, Senior State Archaeologist, California Department of Parks and Recreation

“TMS is used by so many major museums. Meeting the needs of those museums, as Gallery Systems has done, has made the product more flexible and we, as a smaller organization, have been the beneficiaries.”

Richard Grant , Executive Director, The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation

“If I leave a desperate call on a Sunday evening with Gallery Systems, I’m likely to get a call back from the technical support group very quickly. That has been consistent throughout our 21-year relationship. All the staff have been enormously helpful.”

Richard Grant , Executive Director, The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation

“We loved having more tools than we needed rather than just the basic ones we wanted initially. We have many future plans—so we’d much rather have a bigger system than a smaller one.”

Natalie Lawler, Assistant Collections Registrar and Preparator, Chapman University Art Collections

“Increasing accessibility to the collection, while at the same time reducing handling and light exposure of the objects, couldn’t have been achieved without these new technologies and our partnership with Gallery Systems.”

Rachel Tassone, Associate Registrar, Williams College Museum of Art

“We are very happy with the remotely hosted TMS. For us the connection is speedier than our locally hosted TMS was. That’s nice of course, but the real advantages is that Gallery Systems does backups, they do upgrades and we can have the upgrades whenever it’s convenient for us.”

Hilde Bøe, Digital Collection Manager, Munch Museum

“We believe that Gallery Systems provides the knowledge and support needed to best help us showcase our collection…”

Mark Engstrom, Senior Curator and Deputy Director of Collections & Research, Royal Ontario Museum

“Gallery Systems delivers a fantastic product, but what really sells me is their unstinting technical support. As well, their ongoing innovation and interest in their clients’ needs come together to make TMS the best product it can be.”

Christine Droll, Registrar, Database & Collections, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

“I’m always proud to tell a colleague that we use TMS for our catalogue raisonné. TMS makes me feel confident that we have a system that is reliable, which we don’t have to worry about. It has made my job a lot easier.”

Andrea Liguori, Managing Director, The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation

“For years we have wanted to implement barcoding to aid us in moving and handling objects, and with this move the opportunity was finally at hand.”

Hilde Bøe, Digital Collection Manager, The Munch Museum
