BeeCollect Sync

A collection management system like MuseumPlus Classic from zetcom is not an island. There is a constant need to export data out of the system and add new data. BeeCollect Sync is a comprehensive software solution for importing and exporting data to and from MuseumPlus Classic.

When working with modern collection management systems, access to external sources of information plays an increasingly important role. This involves such fields as:

  • standardised vocabularies linked via web services
  • data exchange with external databases
  • interaction with other applications

For these requirements a powerful and flexible interface solution is needed. With BeeCollect Sync we have created such a solution.

BeeCollect Sync consists of a desktop software which allows to manage and activate plug-ins for the import, export or synchronization of data. Besides, imports, exports and sync operations can be performed interactively by the user here.

In addition, there is a service which - installed on a server - can automatically perform imports and exports via appropriately configured and activated plug-ins.

The plug-ins are developed and delivered by Solvatec. In this way, for example, the following automated or interactively guided deployment scenarios can be realized:

  • export of data into user-specific formats (XML, JSON, CSV)
  • export of data into the format LIDO / EDM for export to Europeana / EDM
  • import of data in user-specific formats (XML, JSON, CSV)
  • synchronization with external databases or web services

Technical requirements

Seamless integration into the existing MuseumPlus Classic environment

The desktop software and the server service of BeeCollect sync are based on the Microsoft .NET Framework and are executable on all current Windows client and server operating systems.

The functions of BeeCollect Sync directly access the existing MuseumPlus database. In order to work with BeeCollect Sync no installation of the MuseumPlus client software is needed. Likewise, no adjustments to the MuseumPlus client software are required for the use of BeeCollect Sync.
