Also in 2005 Brian Hiatt was doing market research and this revealed that there were a number of competitors providing software for collectors at very low prices. To compete, Collectorpro Collection Edition was created and marketed as a low price, easy to use software for cataloging collections. Collectorpro Collection Edition is in use by hundreds of collectors and small museums worldwide.
In January 2009, Collectorpro Software Group released the latest version of Collectorpro Appraiser Edition. This new version is the latest evolution in helping appraisers gain more billable time and to help them save money. Collectorpro Software Groups Go Green initiative allows appraisers to electronically sign and electronically deliver appraisal reports to their clients, shipping companies, attorneys, insurance companies and the IRS. The initial reception from users has been overwhelmingly positive.
Collectorpro Appraiser Edition is currently the only solution on the market for personal property appraisers. Our one and only competitor dropped out of the marked in 2007 as we were crushing them in sales and taking away their clients faster than they could acquire new clients.
For over 17 years Collectorpro Software Group has been providing easy to use and inexpensive software products to the art and antiques market. The flagship product Collectorpro Software for Antiques has an industry acceptance, and Collectorpro Appraiser Edition continues to evolve and be accepted by appraisers across the US and Canada.
Collectorpro Software Group recently created an appraiser advisory board to assist in future development of Collectorpro products and to help identify new areas where services may be offered to help appraisers become more productive and generate more revenue.
