The less time artists spend on art inventory software, the better.
Now, that may sound pretty strange coming from the team at Artwork Archive, but we believe that artists should be spending more time in the studio doing what they love, instead of stuck behind a computer all day.
We’ve been improving Artwork Archive with the goal of making it even easier for artists to use the tools they need to manage their studio and track their inventory.
Last year we introduced a better way to organize your exhibitions and shows, powerful sales reporting, expanded edition and print tracking, and a way to schedule the important dates around your art business.
Most recently, we gave Artwork Archive a whole new look along with a lot of other really great new or enhanced features designed to make the administrative side of being an artist easier.
So, what’s new? Here are a few things to get excited about:
A Whole New Design and Layout
A newly designed Artwork Archive makes finding what you need easier and faster to use than ever. Now, you’ll have more clear access to your most commonly used features.
A new dashboard makes it easier to navigate and manage your business.
Limited Edition Runs Now Have Their Own Seat at the Table
As more and more artists turn to limited edition prints (and for our photographers out there) we now offer a dedicated place in Artwork Archive to get an overview and manage key aspects of your print inventory.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Bulk Assigning work to a location
- Easily export reports tailored to print inventory
- Gain insights into which galleries, geographical locations, and artworks are performing well
Set-Up Time = Less Time
No one wants to waste time getting set up. That’s why we made it easier than ever to get all of your past work into Artwork Archive with a new bulk upload feature.
Here’s what’s new:
- Expanded field options for one-stop shop data entry
- Upload up to 20 images at a time into your inventory faster than ever
Drag and drop up to 20 images at a time that will be placed in your inventory.
Bulk upload now has more data fields so you get more information in right away.
Streamlined Show Tracking
This past year we added the ability to record and keep track of all the important details surrounding exhibitions and competitions. This year, we made it better.
- Have closer ties with our reminder system
- Have the ability to export show-specific reports to share with galleries or serve as documentation for your records
One centralized place to view all your past, current, and upcoming exhibitions.
Snazzed Up Reporting
We’ve improved the existing reports you can make, added a few new ones, and made them easier than ever to create (including updated gallery labels!).
