In the North America and Europe, numerous cultural organizations create exhibits that travel around the world. Any moment in a year, hundreds of exhibits are traveling or are on display, bringing histories, memories, and knowledge to communities, schools, and the public. However, in the past no dedicated commercial software products were available to support traveling exhibits management and businesses basically depended on home-grown systems in combination of manual work. This plight situation has ended with the advent of ITEMS, the first and only commercial product built with modern software technologies and targeting the small industry of traveling exhibits.
ITEMS, standing for Integrated Traveling Exhibits Management Systems, covers various business areas related to traveling exhibits and all system modules work synergistically to maximally help the customer to achieve their business goals with ease. ITEMS is coded with the best software practices and cutting-edge JEE technologies and has all hallmarks of a strong enterprise system. It has a rich set of functionalities and handiness, convenience, and effectiveness are the theme across all the application modules. Because of being built on deep understanding of the business of traveling exhibits and the use of latest software technologies, as a dedicated system, ITEMS has great flexibility for easy expansion, modification, or customization, offering a great many possibilities to meet customer needs and for product growth and enhancement in the future.
