Considering buying Modes?

You can install Modes on an unlimited number of networked computers. Your licence will limit the number of users who can log on to Modes at the same time.

Standalone installations require a licence for each copy of Modes which can be used at the same time.

You can download the software and get started as soon as we receive your order. We can give you an estimate for additional work such as data conversion which may be required to import your data from another system.

We give free support to new users for the first 12 months. This means unlimited help by phone or email (during office hours) and access to our website resources. We can also resolve technical problems directly through remote access to your computer. Another great source of free support is the online Modes forum.

You can access our online training resources for no additional cost.

You shouldn’t need to re-type anything! We can transfer your data from other systems, usually through a CSV or XML export.

Modes Complete is essential if you need to share the database between two or more users. Click here to see a full comparison of the two versions.

Modes is ideal for cataloguing collections of all types. Local history societies, sports clubs, schools and hospitals all use Modes to catalogue their collections. If your collection includes photographs and memorabilia, then Modes will work very well for you. Many features can be customised in Modes Complete, to tailor it even further around your collection and organisation.

It is easy to export data from Modes as either CSV or XML, which your web developer can import into their own system.

The system is fully password protected. Each Modes user has an individual account with a personal password and belongs to an access group which determines their level of access in the system. You can limit reports and outputs to control access to confidential information. Your data is further protected by a built-in back up system, which automatically creates a back up when you exit Modes.

We charge a one-off licence fee, and a recurring support fee.
