PERFORMANCE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

Navigation made intuitive so you don’t have to go through multiple screens to get what you need. The main objective of a CMS is to have a centralized location to find information about your collections efficiently. Find what you’re looking for with Google-like keyword searches. Take advantage of convenient sorting, grouping, and filtering of records. Allow your fingers to rest more and your brain to stay actively engaged with your collections.

EXTENSIVE MANAGEMENT ATTRIBUTES

In each catalog maintain all your records with appropriate documentation.  Accessions, Deaccessions, Loans, Exhibits, Conservation, Shipping, Location, and more.  Allow access to users with specific permissions.  Set up workflows to enhance productivity within the different components of your collections management.

INTUITIVE AND EASY TO LEARN

Most new users require minimal training to become familiar with the navigation and data entry features. High quality training available by webinar, user group, and user manual if needed. Powerful mass updating capabilities included for changing locations or cleaning up data as simple examples. Simplified data entry tools reduce the number of keystrokes for adding and updating records, allowing you to work more efficiently.

HIGH QUALITY SEARCH OPTIONS

Extremely powerful searching for searching across all data fields, including attached multimedia. Search across all your fields with a user defined keyword.  Filter, sort, and group pieces of the collection for reporting, inventory, or later use.  The options are virtually endless in the ways you can interact with your collections.  An important aspect of a CMS is to access the data held within in an efficient manner.

ADVANCED SYSTEM SECURITY

Access can be assigned per user with different permission settings.  From Administrator to a Read Only user, easily determine who on the team does what with the institution’s collections.  Allow volunteers access to only certain parts without the ability to delete records as an example. The configurations are extensive for each individual user within Proficio. Make certain metadata fields required for entry in each catalog.

DIGITAL ASSETS

Attach unlimited digital assets to the appropriate catalog record. It’s easy to zoom images, view a slideshow, and opt to include the images in a report. Keep track of certain metadata within the image, manage it for the online collection, and  easily search for use within the organization.  Upload video, audio, PDF’s and Word documents to each record to then share to the public site.
