What is BeeCollect?

Under the label BeeCollect, we develop software that helps museums to gain more value from data in the field of collection management. Our BeeCollect solutions are perfectly matched to the data model of the popular collection management system MuseumPlus Klassik by the company zetcom.

BeeCollect solutions extend the scope of the classical collection database significantly. Each product is designed for a specific task and can be used individually. All products are nevertheless perfectly coordinated and mesh like the elements of a transmission. 

The products of the BeeCollect family provide additional features for data maintenance, data exchange and integration with external software systems. They also allow fully integrated, professional digital asset management, powerful exhibition planning and the realisation of a mobile media guide system for exhibitions.

Furthermore, with BeeCollect Professional, we offer our own comprehensive collection management system to all museums. Institutions employing the program MuseumPlus Classic can keep on using their existing collection data without extensive migration under BeeCollect Professional.
