In 1992, our Co-Founder and President, Linda Hiatt was involved in collecting antiques and collectibles. She was seeking a way to keep track of these valued possessions and through searching many antique magazines (this was pre-internet!) she was unable to come up with any solution. She asked her husband, Brian Hiatt, if he could develop a program to keep track of her collections. Within a few days, Collectorpro for Antiques was born and after using it for a short time, Linda suggested we offer it to others seeking similiar software.
Brian added a few reports and a nice user interface (this was the DOS days)and placed a 1″ advertisement in an antique trade magazine. The advertisement read; “Catalog your collection. Software for a personal computer. Price $32.50. Send check or money order to:”. Within 7 days there was a check in the mail. The rest is history.
Collectorpro Software Inc. offers high quality software for the art and antique communities.
