Wonderful for Small Musuems

I am very pleased by this program and even purchased a personal subscription for my own small collection of artifacts.

PROS

This software brings many museums into the modern day of technology. It enables use of apps on ipods or phones, easy updating and uploading of images, cloud storage and so much more. So many other programs have similar features, but the cost keeps jumping up every time you add a singular feature, making the cost for this software and what it provides invaluable.

CONS

I feel that the program is not user-friendly. I was able to watch tutorials however and learn how to do these items, changes and updates, however it is not intuitive on the operation.

Reasons for switching to CatalogIt

We had PastPerfect 4, and our computers crashed, removing all of our old data. If we wished to upgrade PastPerfect, we would have had to do so to PastPerfect 5, buy the multimedia package, then add on the cloud then add on....you can see where this got irritating and expensive.

Transitioning to a More Intuitive Program

Despite a few losses in functionality, we are extremely pleased with our migration to CatalogIt. Wish we had done it sooner!

PROS

Being a collection institution since 1949, our permanent collection is large and varied. We were using PastPerfect which was not intuitive and not laid out in a way that made sense for us. CatalogIt has solved many of our issues including viewing objects in a variety of categories, allowing us to publish our objects to the web at the click of a button, and, most importantly, the fields are customizable and linked in a clever way behind the scenes that allows for consistency between multiple users.

CONS

Integrating was easy, but there were issues. They were not major and well worth the migration from PastPerfect. There are some concerns with lack of functionality in a few areas, but I feel comfortable emailing customer service with our issues and they communicate well with regards to improvements or workarounds.

Reason for choosing CatalogIt

It all came down to cost for our small institution.

Reasons for switching to CatalogIt

PastPerfect was outmoded and never provided relevant improvements. There was no cloud-based program for users, although one was forthcoming. CatalogIt was tested by our staff and everyone was in agreement that it was an incredible upgrade from what we were using.

Catalogit exemplifies good design

The support team always responded extremely quickly and with clarity. It was easy to train new users as it was very intuitive. Lots clear of how to resources. Extremely simplified and clean while also being super comprehensive.

PROS

I sing its praises to all of my friends in the museum/gallery field. It is so simple, intuitive, and logically organized, and has all the efficient functions. I am a big fan of good design and this, is good design. Thanks to all the staff who have helped me and my team with our various inquiries. It's been a smooth and pleasant ride.

CONS

Honestly no complaints. I sometimes wished there was a feature for "select all" though you can select 50 at a time with shift select. Though I understand selecting all risked not being intentional about what you were selecting and possibly loosing data when bulk editing. Also at times, when making large edits like adding hundreds of items to a tag, it would take a bit of time for it to get updated. This wasn't a problem except when I needed to access that list quickly, and if I needed it immediately I could ask support and they would expedite it for me.

An intuitive system that's student-friendly

PROS

It's generally intuitive to use and I like how large and central the images are. Some other systems bury the image files a little bit in the entries. The drop down menu options for each field takes the guess-work out – this is very useful when students of varying experiences are using the database. Catalogit support team is readily available to answer questions and also have tutorials.

CONS

It would be great to have more image editing tools, like color correction, embedded into the software.
