Flexible systems built to meet the needs of art collections
Our art collections management systems have been developed to meet the needs of some of the most prestigious arts institutions in the world, including Van Gogh Museum, Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain and Salvador Dali Museum. We’ve worked closely with our customers over more than three decades to develop functionality and workflows that support all the processes involved in managing art collections.
But not every gallery manages its collections in the same way. Our systems are designed to allow you to customise the software to meet your needs and priorities.

What Our Customers Say
Amon Carter Museum of American Art
“Axiell has helped us develop an online collection that represents more than 80% of our holdings. This increased access to our collection has resulted in our Museum’s website being a top destination for researchers and publishers around the globe.”
Cutting edge at the Van Gogh Museum
“Before Axiell’s system came into the picture, all the data were managed by 26 separate systems. Now 200 employees can work in the same management system to quickly and easily access the information they need.
David Carden, Collections Assistant
Manchester Art Gallery
“Even I can use it! It’s simple, it’s quick. But mostly the support we get from Axiell is great.”
