What Our Clients Say

“TMS gave us insight into how larger, world-renowned institutions set up their workflow, and every time we have followed these industry standards, it has been to our benefit.”

Richard Grant, Executive Director, The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation
“The learning opportunity is great for our students. So many institutions use TMS, it becomes tangible work experience. They can learn the system and then progress to an internship or job with a great set of skills. We align ourselves with the University’s mission. We’re not an independent entity, we help fulfill the parent institution. That’s why the teaching aspect in TMS was so important, it helps our students grow.”
Lindsay Shen, Director of Art Collections, Chapman University Art Collections

“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
“We can adapt the modules and fields to fit our unique needs,” says David. “For example, we use the Components fields, which other institutions might use for, say, recording information about a painting or a mount, to track the 320 bones of a human skeletal remain. And, we’ve morphed all our data in the ‘Culture’ and ‘Period’ fields into one wonderfully searchable Thesaurus field.”
David DeBono Schafer, Senior Collections Manager, The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University
