Manage collections. Create connections.
Vernon Systems has more than 30 years’ experience in creating software for the museum, gallery and cultural heritage sectors. Our systems are used around the world by institutions to catalogue, manage and publish information about collections.
Vernon CMS is a modular collection management system that handles all common collection processes and types of objects.
We have designed a range of add-ons and modules to complement the core Cataloguing module.
Our clients range from volunteer managed societies to large organisations caring for millions of objects over multiple locations.
eHive supports object cataloguing, storing images, and managing acquisition information. It can also be used as a publishing platform.
Communities in eHive allow users to connect on the basis of a theme, such as a geographic location or type of collection.
You can access eHive data from WordPress and other applications using eHive’s extensive programming interfaces.
Let us help you convert your data. We’ve worked with many types of collections and databases.
We form a tight-knit group dedicated to providing expert support for our proven range of products.
We can consider your requirements, including any customisation and data migration, and prepare a detailed quote for you.
This newsletter includes articles on Auckland Museum’s use of the Topic file, Nelson Provincial Museum’s collection website comments feature, Farnsworth Art Gallery’s new online collection microsite, cataloguing a smartphone app, Gold Coast City Gallery’s use of Vernon CMS, and the results of our 2017 museum survey.
Topic records can go through draft, approval and publication stages, with carefully authored text and subject referencing being retained as an archive for future publication. Auckland Museum has employed the use of the Topic file to collate stories around medal groups, using the system to pull together object data, Cenotaph biographies, photos and narratives.
