We recommend this to historical societies, museums, and artists as it is an excellent piece of software.

I own and operate a small non-profit museum in Atlanta, GA, and we were looking for a software package for archiving historical artifacts, documents, and photographs after creating a database on our own.

In our research, we found that programs were rather expensive, especially for a non-profit. But we couldn’t really find a program that suited our needs unless we paid the high price. Then we found ETChster.

It could do everything we wanted and more, so we got it without hesitation. It has been in use for about 5 months now and each time we add items to the collection we are impressed with how easy it is to archive our inventory.

Not only is it great for small museums, but for artists as well, to upload and share their work via the database.

We recommend this to historical societies, museums, and artists as it is an excellent piece of software.
