Specialist Updates


Management of our collections has improved considerably since installing EMu. We now have a consistent system in use throughout the Museum, allowing users to query the data for research, learning & enjoyment. The addition of community-based Narratives has reconnected the Museum and its collections to source communities and users around the world.
Malcolm Chapman Manchester Museum
We have never been told no, you can’t do something. Sometimes it takes a little bit more thought, and sometimes we’ve been gently guided in a slightly different direction, but we’ve learned to trust the Axiell Support team because we have never been steered wrong.
Barbara M. Thiers New York Botanical Garden
More and more of van Gogh’s world is going to become accessible on the net. Axiell is our partner and a great help to us in various decisions here as well.
Nikola Etink. Sector Manager The Van Gogh Museum
Our 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.
Els Alebregtse, Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport The Hague
Our ability now to be online and to have people access our collection in that way to complete research is really helping us to fulfil the mission to the public.
Paula Destefano Winterthur Museum, Gallery & Garden
Axiell and the collection management solution Adlib proved beyond a doubt that they could meet our needs for streamlined workflows and our ambition to digitise our collection and make it available online, while maintaining control of the data and ensuring a positive ROI for the project.
