Make your collection more visible and accessible than ever before

Enhanced Curation and Enriched Experiences


Argus is a flexible web-based collections management system platform for museums and galleries. 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.

Museums and galleries stay accessible, visible and relevant with Argus

Museums and galleries stay accessible, visible and relevant with Argus. The combined collection management and portal elements of the system result in greater operational efficiency and strong partnerships between Collections, IT, faculty and other departments. Ease of use and minimal training time leads to rewarding volunteer opportunities and increased accessibility and productivity for staff. 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.

Use Cases

There is always a wealth of information related to any single artifact in a museum or gallery collection. Curators know that providing supporting materials to researchers, authors, students and faculty is critical to expanding knowledge – and to demonstrating added value through easy access to these additional resources. With Argus’ enhanced curation options, a University Art Museum shares important supporting information relating to single objects, and structures collections of related artifacts to enrich the museum visitor’s experience, whether in person or virtual.
A museum of Western history selected Argus because it presents minimal training requirements, integrates seamlessly with existing IT projects and architecture (including gallery kiosks), and offers ease of use for staff, interns and volunteers. Argus enables supportive partnership between curation staff and the IT department, with a system flexible enough for IT to easily adapt as needed while also reducing their training burden. The combined elements of the system result in operational efficiency and great partnership between departments.
A (previously) hidden gem of a regional museum uses Argus to fulfill their goal of focusing on technology based outreach through a Web portal, enabling research and general perusal of their collection by visitors around the world, expanding their reputation and even inspiring in person visits. Historically a hands-on family friendly place focused on educating and entertaining the local community, their new strategy includes showcasing their collection to virtual visitors further afield – offering a great Web-based “global community” resource that is modern and sustainable well into the future.
