OVS implements powerful and flexible mechanisms to interrelate all administrational procedures allowing the user to build its own structures of correlate procedures. There is also a powerful report engine allows registrar user to fulfill document templates like Contracts, or Exhibitions lists with museums management data supporting in this way all Museum workflows. Even if the GNM-Image and Administration System is based on the needs of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, the implemented functionality is compliant with the Spectrum, the UK Museum Collections Management Standard.
