SKINreporter, the mobile software for objects audit and collections management

Museums and institutions managing collections always work on artworks from up close. Therefore, how could this be done relevantly without an easy access to adapted mobile solutions allowing to work on the field? Indeed, working with collections requires to track their conditions, organize their movements, keep track of the inventory - which are difficult to achieve remotely.

When it comes to conduct inventories on collections, institutions need to find efficient, relevant working methods for organizing such operations and monitoring their progress. In this perspective, SKINsoft has decided to integrate a set of advanced functionalities in a dedicated mobile application, synchronized with the other SKINsoft software.

SKINreporter is an 'on-the-go' application developed for tablets and smartphones, and includes a plurality of functionalities facilitating collection audits and inventory management in offline mode. Operations such as inventory data input, artefacts review, condition reporting, media management, tasks and movements management have never been easier.

The application is also in line with international standards including Spectrum and the French Ministry of Culture aiming at guaranteeing the durability of public collections.
