Art Business Software and CRM Programs
Almost every business utilizes a CRM (Contact Relationship Management) software program or online database platform, and art galleries and art businesses are no exception. With over thirty years of experience with database programs, Greg Colley Art Services database management services are available to you.
Many art business or art vendor-specific database programs are custom designed for galleries, artists, and collectors with custom screen and report layouts and art business marketing applications. Beware of purchasing or subscribing to any company’s platform that could significantly increase their prices, does not keep up with the market, or becomes obsolete. You don’t want to sink years of learning curve time, data entry, and photography into a program only to find years later that your program did not evolve with the times and has become outdated, or worse, the company goes out of business, and you have to start over with another program.
CRM programs with the greatest market share are non-industry specific. These programs typically offer more customization than art industry-specific programs and can manage multiple databases with different applications. A generic CRM program can be used for multiple businesses, LLCs, etc., and personal and hobby-related uses can have many customized databases operating with different custom screen designs within one program. Art business-specific software should outperform generic programs for the art industry, but pitfalls might exist due to the program’s cost or specificity requiring you to subscribe to additional programs. Whether you choose to use a generic CRM program or an art business-specific program, we can assist you with the setup and management of your data.
