We have around 450,000 reports in the system made by around 200 paying organisations globally and are just starting to work with some larger enterprise-level customers.

About the Articheck platform
Articheck lets museums, galleries, shippers, collectors and conservators create condition reports for artwork. Users can create reports, add images, annotate the images by drawing shapes, and share reports with colleagues or third parties.

The iOS app offers the ability to use Articheck away from users’ desks and, importantly, also offline.
