ilon & Company sets up, organizes and monetizes archives for photographers and artists. We archive the art—the tangible asset behind the digital file—and advise on digital workflow, from camera or scan to final destination. We provide long-term software solutions for all pre- and post-production needs, including our custom FileMaker solutions that allow for efficient everyday commerce.

ilon & Company aims to ensure that your work is not only safely stored, but also easily accessed to create additional sources of revenue. Organized and accessible archives are where art meets commerce.

A message from Loni Efron, founder of ilon and Company:

I have worked extensively with artists for over two decades, organizing and archiving photo and art databases, and developing innovative workflow solutions and best archival practices. I also work with artists’ families and foundations to inventory, report and monetize their collections.

 It is critical to archive—not only to keep artists’ collections safe, but to fully monetize what has been created.

Our digital database solution, iArchive, helps artists and photographers efficiently organize and monetize your work therefore build your legacy.

Four additional solutions—iGallery, iCollect, iManage and iInventory—are tailored for galleries, collectors, agents, producers, prop houses, equipment houses and holders of large inventories. These user-friendly solutions remove or reduce the need for costly software development.

All of these solutions can be customized to meet individual needs.

Please join me quarterly for free archive information sessions hosted by ilon Art Gallery.

Thanks, Loni Efron
