Improve how you interact with your collection. Transform how the world interacts with your objects.
The role of museums, galleries, and libraries is evolving beyond the four walls of your physical space.
DAM is essential to digitizing your collection and making the museum experience more accessible for the public.
Organizing your digital assets is just the beginning. Portfolio lets you attach in-depth metadata to each item in your collection, search visually, and easily access the highest quality imagery, video, audio, and other assets available. Your team can interact more easily with assets – saving you time and money.
You know the true value of the objects in your collection. They’re a part of history, of culture, and stories in and of themselves. The physical constraints of GLAM institutions can make it challenging to showcase all the objects in your collection, but digitization is changing that and DAM can help.
NetPublish allows you to share your digital assets and their stories with the public, while limiting the amount of internal metadata released. Your efforts to share more of your collection — on your website, in augmented reality and virtual reality projects, and for remote pop-ups and events — are supported. Portfolio can help content from the past have more relevance in the future.
How your team interacts with your digital assets has a direct effect on your workflow and processes. For heritage and culture teams, the sheer volume of information can be overwhelming or difficult to relate to and search, for those not familiar with the subject matter, particularly if it’s not organized effectively — but there is a better way.
Chances are that your Collection Management System (CMS) services the needs of the curatorial users and Portfolio can help build on that foundation.
Basic information, such as Artist, Medium and Dimensions are just the beginning. For example, team members could group collection objects together in a Portfolio Gallery, even where those objects don’t share a curatorial connection.
Portfolio’s Read/Write API could also allow you to work with your organization’s collections management data — pulling and adding metadata from the CMS, and enabling users to access factually accurate curatorial information alongside the big picture - and without the need to re-key information.
Confusion, disorganization, and wasted time checking historical accuracy become a thing of the past. Clarity, communication, and peace of mind become the day-to-day standard for operations. Your team is able to accomplish more, together.
