PC World Review on My Art Collection Software:

Art Collectors, keep track of your entire collection.

Whether you are a rookie or a veteran, whether you collect paintings or sculptures or quilts, this program from Elms Publishing is a great way to have an ongoing detailed inventory of all your art. I found the software to be very easy to use and remarkably user friendly. To add a new piece of art to the database, the user selects the new record button. At this point, you can enter every important detail of the specific piece of art such as the type of art, medium that is used, subject of the piece, date created, dimensions, framed or not, and condition of the art. Further details can be inputted that include the artists information, sale history of the item, and a separate tab allows you to input appraisal and authentication information including an image of the certification of authenticity.

This software will allow you run many types of reports for a variety of circumstances. For example, say there's a natural disaster and you lose your entire collection, fortunately, you can run a report specific for insurance companies. You now have a list of every piece of art and exactly how much it is worth. Other report options include a collection summary, art detail list, appraisal value list, authentication reports, and more. You can even use the program to help you print out labels for each piece of art in your collection.

The demo version is available at no charge; the full version of the software costs a one-time fee of $50. The demo has the exact same interface and options as the full version, but in the demo you can not save your list of items that you have created. To save your items, you must buy the full version.

Newsday Review on My Home Inventory Software:

Product Review
LISA DOLL BRUNO

October 6, 2006

PURPOSE: Inspired by the loss of 3,000 homes in the 2003 San Diego, Calif., wildfires, residents Marc Slott and Ed Lewis, co-founders of Elms Publishing, developed "My Home Inventory" so "folks could easily document their belongings in the event of a disaster."

...THE PITCH: This program is for anyone who has homeowner's or renter's insurance or a home-based business, says Marc Slott, president of Elms Publishing.

EFFECTIVENESS: Take a moment to consider all your possessions. A stereo, computer, camera and some jewelry may leap to mind. Think harder. Some items, such as appliances or a garage full of tools and sports equipment might not race to the forefront.

Of course you can do this without the software, but it can be difficult to recall everything you own, imagine trying to conjure up the list in the case of a robbery, fire or hurricane, not to mention the challenge of identifying manufacturers, models, serial numbers and price tags.

"My Home Inventory" gives an edge to the homeowner who needs to file an insurance claim: an opportunity to take stock of the value of possessions. In fact, Slott says he received feedback from some consumers who took inventory and learned they were underinsured.

The program, which is pretty straightforward, allows the user to easily itemize each possession by clicking the "new record" button. Headers are provided for details, such as the category, the item, serial number, location of item, and pictures (up to three per item). A batch load function allows the user to download numerous pictures quickly instead of just one at a time, Slott said.

The inventory can include donated items and things lent out and can be viewed as a list, or it can be sorted and tallied for dollar value. Other functions include running reports, label making, and importing and exporting files from and to Excel.

Help menus provide instruction, but queries can be made online with a response time that usually takes between two and 12 hours but no longer than a day, Slott says.

To receive the full benefit of this program, you'll need to back it up and store a copy in a safe place other than your home. Check out the free demo download (which doesn't retain data) to see if it's for you.
