"Virtual Courier was the perfect tool for keeping track of the project, seeing how the sculpture was loaded onto the truck, and monitoring condition issues."
Lynn Dolby
Collections Manager and Registrar, Penn Art Collection

Group Dashboard

A shared virtual space for users to collaboratively record condition during art movement on both the object and shipment levels. All Virtual Courier records are also saved in the history of each object for future reference.

Transit Checks

Record each vital step of art movement with automatic GPS location plus photo and video capabilities. Instant email notification to all group members for each check.

Secure Sharing

Share Virtual Courier with anyone in the world, customizing access and update permissions for each partner. Partners login using 2 factor authentication to collaborate with you.

Group Documents

Did you know email is the least secure method of online communication? With Virtual Courier, important documents are securely saved in one place. Upload a PDF or take a photo of a document onsite to add it to the record with the ability to restrict access to certain users.

Unlimited Updates

Users with access to a Virtual Courier group can make unlimited updates on both an object and shipment level while the group is active.

Media Checks

Our new check system extends to the object level as well. Film installation instructions or record treatment progress pre-move. Once the object arrives, the installation process or unpacking can be filmed for the condition history.

Condition Report Videos

Every condition report in a Virtual Courier group can include up to two condition videos - allowing for quick and effective documentation of 3D or unconventional objects.

Offline Functionality

With the Articheck iOS app you can complete transit checks in remote or secure areas without a data connection and upload later.

Proof of Delivery/Collection [BETA]

Legal documentation of delivery or collection incorporated directly into the condition record. Customizable fields and T&C for each organization.

Instant Notifications [BETA]

Email notifications for all completed transit checks. In-app/text notifications coming soon.
