Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why another collection manager application?
    At Belize Botanic Gardens we felt that the other collection management software was either too expensive, inadequate or only supported Windows so we decided to create our own.
  2. But why for free?
    We feel that current collection management software is overpriced especially for small institutions in developing countries. Biodiversity affects our entire world and everything that relies on it to live. To help protect such a fragile system the management of information related to biodiversity should not be restricted.
  3. I found a bug. What can I do about it?
    For bug reports, but also for technical and generic questions, get a github account and file a bug report here.
