PastPerfect is the world's most popular and affordable museum software. The latest release is loaded with exciting new features. We've been listening to you, our users, to make the #1 best-selling collection management software even better.
New features include the capacity to hold millions of catalog records, ergonomically designed navigation, more custom fields, user specific catalog lists, new CSS based Virtual Exhibits, and a more intuitive Report Maker report builder.
In Version 5, we have also enhanced tracking and communicating with contacts. Now you can create lists using the same easy steps as building a query in Research. Once contacts are on lists, you can generate reports, export data to MS Excel, write dynamic mail merge letters using the new MS Word interface, or map contacts’ locations with the export to MS Streets & Trips, MS Map Point or Google Earth Pro.
We have added more customizable features to PastPerfect Version 5. You will be able to personalize the Main Menu, research queries, search results, reports, location field names, and custom screen views.
PastPerfect sets the standard for collection management. It is affordable, flexible, and easy to use for both small organizations and large collections of over three million catalog records.
