The brief included improved functionality for reviewing, catalogueing, purchasing and invoicing the sales of their extensive collection of gallery artwork. Messum’s also wanted to communicate more effectively with customers. Continued improvement of sending regular updates, feature brochures on new artists exhibitions and detailing their services. The customer list also required a succinct management using Mailchimp software to monitor and manage subscribers effectively.
