MUSEION

Informational system for tracking collections in museums and galleries.

Centralized solution for managing collections from the individual level, through groupings by city, district, up through national institutions; publication platform for web portals and virtual reality projects.

Registration, manipulation, conservation, storage, acquisition, collection, publication, processing, CES and PSEUD reporting – designed for large museums and organizers, also suitable for smaller and private collections.

MUSEION is suitable for work with all types of collection funds, and thanks to a special cataloging formula, offers a detailed interface solution for cataloging and other processing of data from historical, artistic, ethnographic and others fields, as well as for various natural science specialities, currently botany, entomology, geology/mineralogy, paleontology and zoology.

Naturally, we include user-editable tables of professional terminology, specific to each field, including heirarchical taxonomical tables in natural science.

MUSEION operates in complete accord with Czech and Slovak legislative requirements for museum collection management, and respects international standards and methodology of collection creation, while allowing for established methods of proper museum practice. It is currently available in three language variations – Czech, Slovak and English. German, Polish and Ukranian versions are currently being finalized.
