What Our Customers Say

Helen Armstrong, Durham University

Helen Armstrong, Collections Registrar
Culture Durham

“One of the things that is great about it is its scalability – it’s just as good a package to use for a single site (you can really simplify it down and use it really happily) but it scales up just as well to a big multi-site multi-collection place like us.”

Art Work at Van Gogh Museum, an Adlib user

Cutting edge at The Van Gogh Museum

“Before Axiell’s Adlib system came into the picture, all the data were managed by twenty-six separate systems. Now 200 employees can work in the same management system to quickly and easily access the information they need.

The collections will now be hung and presented in an entirely new way, with focus on how van Gogh developed and how his life took shape at the same time. The website will be expanded and will offer visual surprises. An Experience Tour based on visual material from the museum will travel the world. And the museum is planning several blockbusters, such as the co-exhibition with iconic Norwegian Expressionist Edvard Munch, a contemporary of van Gogh’s.”

“The old IT system was a dinosaur. The new system paid off in a year – despite numerous customised solutions. Everyone now has a completely different overview, accessibility and considerably shorter lead-times.”
