Primer video update: Transactions

We have released a newly updated video covering Primer's 15 transactions, including our flexible custom transaction option. This meaty video covers everything from sale to consignment to donation and everything in between. If you need a refresher on a specific topic, use the times stamps listed below the video (be sure to watch on our Vimeo page to use this function). As we continue to enhance Primer to be the best art software for our clients' needs, we will continue to update our instructional videos.

Thank you!

Thank you to all our great clients and supporters who helped Primer Archives triple in size in 2016. We are honored that so many great businesses from New York to Los Angeles to London, and everywhere in between, choose Primer as their art gallery software to manage inventory, contacts, transactions, artists and exhibitions. This year we also expanded our client base to include art advisors and private collections. Primer was developed by art dealers who saw a need for better functioning, less expensive art gallery database software. We look forward to expanding in 2017 to include artist software and to continue to meet the needs of the art gallery, art advisor, and art collecting communities.

Primer Archives Cloud Hosting

With servers located across the US and internationally, Primer Archives Cloud Hosting gives our clients an easy networking solution that provides convenient and secure access to their information. We can host your licensed copy of Primer for your art gallery or art collection for a low monthly cost and with lighting fast speeds in conjunction with AWS (Amazon Web Services). In addition, our hosting services come with Filemaker Pro software included at no extra charge for each authorized user. No time commitments or contracts. Cancel cloud hosting at any time and continue to use your database locally. Don't be limited by a database that you can't view on any Mac, PC, iPhone, or iPad, or alternately, feel held hostage by cloud based services that don't provide you with an option to use offline!
