What museum customers say about us

Axiell has helped us develop an online collection that represents more than 80% of our holdings. This increased access to our collection has resulted in our Museum’s website being a top destination for researchers and publishers around the globe.

For Curators, Conservators, Registrars, it’s a great way to coordinate between the three groups as to what’s going on with an object. It benefits you in so many ways, it really improves your work and you can accomplish so much more.

Even I can use it! It’s simple, it’s quick. But mostly the support we get from Axiell is great.
