I have enjoyed using PastPerfect in several museum settings
Kommentare: Ease of use!
Vorteile: I like the ease of use, it's very self-explanatory, that you can use accession cards alongside the software that way you can have a physical as well as digital copy, and that every pieces location can be tracked using the software.
Nachteile: It is not as modern and streamlined as other programs, but even in saying that it's such a simple software that I feel like a more modern version might be harder to use.

For the cost, this is a robust program that can let you do a lot.
Vorteile: It's relatively intuitive to use, and training materials are free available online. The program has plenty of flexibility for small- to medium-size organizations with a wide variety of collections. There are features that allow you to make your collections accessible online. If you have problems, the customer service is outstanding.
Nachteile: Because the program was originally developed by a museum curator, the library and archives modules are lacking, but have greatly improved with each version. If you don't thoroughly clean up your existing data before importing it, or develop a comprehensive plan for entering data anew to ensure consistency, you will end up with a lot of records that look sloppy and unprofessional, and there are few functions for making mass changes. PLAN and think through all scenarios before you process. When operating this program on a network, be sure to have enough space and speed on your network to handle the program, otherwise the program will run so slow to render it practically useless, or at least *significantly* lower your productivity. This will impact your real cost of implementing and maintaining this program. As far as cost, also keep in mind that every additional module which allows you to publish to the web and improve your workflow will cost extra money, so be sure to know your current and future needs in advance.

Easy to Use for Membership Management
Vorteile: This software makes it easy for our museum to track membership donations and pledges, add new contacts to our database, and track the events that visitors attend at our museum. I found the software easy to use because it is rather intuitive and a user can manage it without much training. I like that there is a place for notes so we can make remarks on individuals for future reference.
Nachteile: Adding form letters for various membership contacts to the software was a bit difficult as the formatting was often a bit off when the letter was copied from another source. However, while bothersome, this issue was easily corrected.

Better than some other systems
Kommentare: Past perfect was purchased to replace a more basic system running ms access as a a database management system. It is a vast improvement upon that. Past Perfect also cost considerably less than other options our smaller museum was considering at the time.
Vorteile: The ability to craft specific searches within the database. The ability to partition multiple collections from one another in a single system. Folders of objects can mimic the old physicality of the actual files.
Nachteile: convoluted style of conducting searches that would be considered non-standard. for instance if you want to search by location within a certain collection their isn't an intuitive way to do that on the setup we are using. this may be possible but it ended up being simpler to sort the fields a particular way and doing a step by step search

Kommentare: Whilst it is a sophisticated all in one museum management software it is more suitable for medium to large size museums with paid staff. This software is vulnerable to a lack of successional training & knowledge of database management software. The main bugbear we find with the program is that it doesn't come with a free field for 'object name' just a thesaurus for the type of object which is very odd.
Vorteile: One stop shop museum management. Looks good. Training Videos & Customer Support.
Nachteile: No free field for Object Name. Not suitable for volunteer run organisations.
