By making the move to Axiell Collections, you buy into the future of our product roadmap. We are committed to innovating Collections to ensure it is the best collections management system on the market. The feature-set is always evolving, and by contributing to our ideas portal, you become part of that development process.
Unlike traditional collections management software, Axiell Collections doesn’t keep you tied to your desk. Manage your collections online, anytime, anywhere through your desktop, laptop or tablet. Whether you’re working in an exhibition space, organising a storage area or in a meeting, your collections data is at your fingertips
Axiell Collections now features personalization options in the front-end of the platform. This allows users to create search forms, screen orders and grid view options etc. These preferences are all automatically saved in the user’s profile and will be available anywhere the user logs on.
The ability to create customised search forms allows for easier and more efficient access to records. In addition, the auto suggest function helps the user pick search terms that actually exist in the data. The new simple search option enables the user to search multiple fields at once.
The multiple views feature enables users to view multiple panels at once. This makes it possible to see the result of a search in the grid while also seeing the details of the selected/highlighted record in the grid. If necessary, other views, such as the media viewer, can also be open at the same time.
Collections provides an overview of a selected record’s relations. With the Related Record view it is a simple matter to see that an object is linked to an exhibition record, loan, conservation treatment and other objects for instance, and to navigate to.
Records that contain geographical references can be plotted on a map to show selected records in their geographical context. Multiple layers/contexts can be plotted on a map using different colours.
When creating multiple records with similar data, simplify data entry by creating one or more copies of a record, each with a unique identifier, and updating only the differences.
Tasks can be defined by the Application Administrator to automate modifications to any number of selected records, for instance to clean-up data, or conditionally add metadata. Forms can be used to request input from users before running the task.
Users have various options for importing and exporting data. Selected records can be exported directly into Excel, and to XML or CSV. Users can also pick any field from the data dictionary for export. A smart import function enables users to import data from CSV files, and a test function allows for verification of data before it is imported.
