Hi All,

I'm hoping I can get some thoughts from some fellow collectors about a project my brother and I are starting.

Being both active collectors and software designers, my brother and I have decided to develop our own collection management software platform. We have been rather unimpressed with the offerings on the market and we're looking to develop something using modern technologies with high levels of privacy and security.

We'd love to get your thoughts on what you would want out of a system like this. Here's a link to a survey we've put together:

Thanks!

Dear Brian,
what a nice idea. I have just completed the survey.
Since a while I am thinking about a way to cataloging and publish my collection.
All the ones that I have seen do have some weakness. Poor pictures, or limited number of pictures, for example.
The ideal in my case would be a software that allow me to have a main index of the collection, and, for each category, index pages displaying small images of each item. By clicking on the image of an item, it will reach the dedicated page of that item.
For each item, the possibility of writing an exhaustive description, even pages, and the possibility of adding no less than 10-15 good-quality pictures, with a maximum size of 1200 pixels.
All this, with either the possibility of sharing it only with authorized people, or to be openly accessible to anyone on the net, for example by googling for “snuff bottles collection”.
In the case of having opted for an open access to anyone on the net, the content too should be accessible by the search engines. I mean, for example if someone is googling for “mutton jade bottle”, the link to the collection should be found if there is a mutton jade bottle within the collection.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Hi Giovanni,

Thanks for completing the survey! And thanks also for your additional thoughts here. I think the features we have planned would fit well with what you're looking for.

Dear Brian,

Nice survey, Just had it done. I am actually looking for a collection management tool. I wish that you can come up a perfect one.
