Argus is a flexible web-based collections management software platform for museums, galleries and archives. Argus is built to enhance curation, and to significantly expand outreach and access via the Web, enriching the experience for both in-person and virtual visitors.
The Argus Difference
Unlike traditional collections management platforms, fully Web-based Argus enables you to easily offer public portal access to objects and exhibits and to provide more in-depth documentation about each artifact – delivering content in context. You can also leverage efficient purpose-built workflows with minimal training required, and can rest secure in the knowledge that Argus is built on sustainable, cutting edge technology that will remain relevant as your collection and requirements grow.

Finally, Argus empowers you to offer an educational, inspiring and entertaining experience for visitors the world over.
Sophisticated Web presence
Significantly expand outreach and access through a public web and mobile portal linked directly to your entire collection (beyond the 1-4% that’s on exhibit). Reach visitors near and far, and highlight specific exhibits and objects, or enable browsing of your entire collection through powerful search options including Google.
Enriched User Experience
Provide more documentation in more depth, for both individual objects and collections – with relevant multimedia and links to related artifacts.
Turn Searching into Finding
Integrated public portal and back end administration lets you push real time updates and makes data entry easy, leading to streamlined workflow and reduced training time for new staff, interns and volunteers.
