panOpticon is a dream tool —
perfect for the extensive amounts of information
one must organize when creating a catalogue



“We work with panOpticon’s information management system to assemble our Sam Francis catalogue raisonné of unique works on paper. The ease with which we can document data, upload images, create lists and notes as part of our daily research has allowed us to expand our archives in so many ways.

“We can’t imagine a better system for this process.”
