"As an artist, I was struck by the difficulties of keeping track of my artworks, and the duplication of effort each time I sent works to an exhibition. Could I be sure I knew where things were, when and where did I paint that and what's the story behind it, what was I charging for it. I'm an artist not an admin specialist."
"As a gallerist having to deal with the administration of sending and receiving multiple works. The time that it took to compile the information, images and prices into dispatch notes, labels and catalogues took up an unwarranted amount of time. I wanted a way of doing things once not multiple times."
"Of course, nothing would be complete if a solution did not also help the collector. A wonderfully simple way of recording and storing information about your works, the provenance, invoices, restoration work & even producing lists for insurance purposes."
"And essential in any solution had to be simplicity of finding artworks from within a large group, and affordability in a marketplace of pricey products .
arTag works on phones, tablets, laptops & desktop. Simple to use but not lacking in features.
