I am now a partner in arton12.com which is a co-op gallery with a limited budget. We are trying to integrate our sales (done now in an excel form) and our Quickbooks which tracks and does all the finances, like commissions, etc, and expenses. But we DO NOT track or input an inventory since items are entered at the time of sale and our members keep their own inventory books (handwritten).
Ideally, we'd like to not have to manually input sales to QB, etc. And be able to track sales, type of product (painting, sculpture, etc), and link to customers who bought the items from which artist ... for future promos and mailings. We are working on a new website and I do SEO and design. Integration of sales with a website is not necessary, but maybe in the future we might.
Most of the existing gallery software solutions we've seen require inventory inputs to make them work. We don't have time or want to give all members access to such software.
Looking for advice, insights, etc. And a reasonable price. Some cost $1800 - $5500 just to set up! Plus monthly fees of $200.
