Structure

Clear arrangement of your exhibition projects

Each exhibition project can be hierarchically structured into different elements. Individual exhibits are attributed to these elements via drag and drop. In this way, the exhibition is visually divided into their rooms, sections and topics.

For each of these structural elements detail data and media like photos, videos or external texts can be deposited.

And using the Quick Search you can find any desired item quickly even in major exhibition projects.

Flexibility

Flexible presentation für each use case

Content Management

Integrated Management of Media Guide Content

In many museums processes like planning, ongoing operations and the documentation of an exhibition project are represented in separate systems. The Exhibition Manager resolves these barriers. This makes it possible, for example, to manage the  texts, media and images used by your audio / media guide system together with all the other information related to the same exhibition project.

With the integration of external media guide systems it would be possible then to synchronise relevant new or changed information from the exhibition manager with the content database used by your audio / media guide system. 

Administration

No update for MuseumPlus required

The Exhibition manager needs no update of your existing Museum Plus application. It is part of the BeeCollect Toolbox Pro and can be installed on any Windows client. The respective client does not even require a MuseumPlus installation.

Nevertheless, all the data edited with the Exhibition Manager are completely searchable and printable in MuseumPlus - the BeeCollect Toolbox Pro is fully integrated into your existing Museum Plus database.

Interoperability

Interfaces to other systems

A single system is not able to satisfy each of the most diverse requirements. For some purposes specialized software is needed. The Exhibition Manager comes with interfaces for several systems including digital asset management, media guide and restoration systems. Thus, you can make all relevant data available at the same time both in your central collection management system and your pool of special applications.

Via BeeCollect Sync it is also very easy to export data in external systems or to import data from external sources. In this way, for example, external exhibition designers could get access to certain data or deliver preliminary work for your exhibition project.
