Collection Management Systems (CMS) do a great job with handling information associated with objects but they tend to fall short when it comes to managing digital versions. Why? Simply put, a text-centric CMS system isn’t equipped to catalog, share and archive digital assets.
The answer for many museums, galleries, and other cultural heritage organizations lies in adopting a Digital Asset Management System (DAM) to organize and protect their digital assets. By combining DAM with CMS, institutions can provide an efficient and comprehensive collection information solution that addresses all their needs.
Portfolio is a flexible digital asset management system that can work with your CMS to help centralize, find, manage, and convert photography, flat art scans, collateral, catalogs, and other digitized material associated with collection objects.
Custom catalog templates for VRA Core and Spectrum DAM are built right into Portfolio. This saves you time when setting up new catalogs, establishes consistency across all catalogs, and ensures your catalogs store all the information you need.
We’ve worked with key CMS vendors to create custom connectors that allow you to marry the power of Portfolio with the rich data of your Collections Management System. Currently we support Adlib and Museum Plus.
