TMS Collections is a next generation web-based version of TMS designed to handle all your collections management needs. TMS Collections retains the functionality you rely on in TMS but also provides new features and benefits available with a modern platform. It is more configurable to give individual users control, a dashboard and new search options facilitate workflow, and the interface is easy to learn. TMS Collections can be used on tablets and gives you secure access to your collection records from anywhere.
A New Upgrade Path
We provide TMS Collections to TMS clients as an optional software upgrade that is covered under annual maintenance. There are no license fees required for you to transition to TMS Collections. TMS Collections offers an intuitive and customizable web interface that removes the need to install and upgrade TMS on individual desktop computers.
TMS Collections Benefits
TMS Collections offers a sleek and adaptable user interface. Its intuitive design reduces the learning curve for new users, so training is a breeze. The new user specific dashboard can be tailored to job functions, and easily provides quick access to key information and notifications. Navigation is quick and easy, with the addition of a new navigation tree structure.
Configurable by Design
All data entry views are configurable and available in every module. New fields are easy to create, and text fields are greatly enhanced and support rich text formatting. Dashboards are configurable at group and user levels, allowing individual users to have more control over what they see and how they work. TMS Collections can easily be set up for different collecting disciplines, including Archives, by customizing the Navigation tree. The Navigation tree provides a hierarchical overview of your data and is available in every module, allowing you to see all linked Exhibition records directly from an Object record, or a Series, Sub-Series, Folders or Items in Archival records, for example.
TMS Collections operates in a browser, so the IT department doesn’t need to install it on individual workstations, resulting in significant time savings when upgrading or activating users. There is no need for Citrix or Microsoft RDS, and TMS Collections will be easier to upgrade to new versions than TMS. TMS Collections is certified to work on the Windows platform in a Google Chrome browser and on the Mac platform in a Safari browser. TMS Collections can also be used on iPad and Surface tablets.
TMS Collections utilizes powerful cross-database searching (Google-like search) combined with configurable filters to provide faster access to record sets. The field specific search tool allows you to easily build queries and provides an enhanced set of useful search operators, such as ‘In the last 7 days’. Query filters are definable and sharable, and common search results can be displayed on your dashboard for quick access.
A Power-User’s Paradise
TMS Collections is a modernization of TMS, so even though your TMS user interface is getting an update, your TMS skills and knowledge don’t have to. TMS Collections uses the same schema as TMS so ListViews, DataViews, Security Groups, and Reports work the way you are accustomed to. Batch updating is available, giving users the ability to batch add and remove objects from Exhibitions and Loans. Authority values can also be batch updated.
Improved Media Management
TMS Collections makes it easy to upload and download media files using the new drag and drop functionality, and image comparison is greatly enhanced. Image thumbnails are available and pre-cached for fast load times. The MediaXRefs ribbon provides greater visibility to linked media records, with easy access to associated media-record data in a pop-up editing screen.
