Curia Announces Master Timeline To Exhibition Planning And Management System

Posted by Jack LaPan | Feb 20, 2019 9:58:35 AM

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Feb. 19, 2019  -- Curia has announced the addition of a "master timeline" feature to the exhibition planning and management system, marking a major enhancement to the system's capabilities.

Designed for use by museums in planning, staging, and managing exhibits, Curia provides users with a centralized cloud-based tool enabling stakeholders at various levels of the museum hierarchy to collaborate effectively together within a single system. The tool effectively replaces the usual cumbersome array of tools and applications museums use for this purpose, streamlining work flows and establishing a single secure "source of truth" for tools, information and materials related to exhibits.

The master timeline function enables users to quickly and easily gain a comprehensive overview of all relevant dates, tasks and deadlines associated with all a museum's exhibitions. Leveraging information contained within the project and task management functions of Curia's individual exhibition instances, the master timeline aggregates all data to create an interactive visual display of exhibition information, and dynamically updates it as needed. This replaces a necessary but cumbersome and time-consuming manual process using spreadsheets.

Developed in cooperation with the Perez Art Museum Miami as a response to requests from about 40 clients and prospects, the master timeline function is a major enhancement to Curia's capabilities. "Curia's goal has always been to make the creation, execution and follow up of an exhibition much more efficient, and we've been successful at that," says Jack LaPan, Director of Products. "The master timeline multiplies that effect by providing much better visibility and much more immediate access to the up-to-date information that curators, planners, directors, marketers and other stakeholders need."

"You can immediately see the progress of various tasks, the resources being used, and resolve any emerging issues. It will be a big help to our clients."

The master timeline feature is already available to the Perez Art Museum Miami, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and other museums using the Curia system.
