"StampManage Deluxe 2014 - Excellent Software"

August 08, 2014  |  By ChristineJS

 |  Version: StampManage Deluxe 2014

Pros

Affordable
Easy to use
Easy to identify stamps
Variety of reports available
Reports can be printed in various formats - i.e. Excel, PDF, etc.

Cons

Stamp photos not always high quality
Depending upon the speed of your computer, the program may take up to an hour to download and install.

Summary

I decided to dust off my stamp albums that had been sitting on a shelf in the cupboard and take stock of what I had. StampManage Deluxe is perfect for this. The software is easy to use and easy to edit. Stamps can be added easily. This program is well suited to both beginner stamp collectors and long-time collectors. I had no problem with support. I emailed them with a question and received a response within 24 hours. I would certainly recommend this software.

"I fully agree with oldman43, his comment is right on."

April 24, 2014  |  By 5613rick

 |  Version: StampManage Deluxe 2014

Pros

Printing my reports to MS and saving in many different formats are very important to me. I have gotten all of the upgrades since 2010 as they are released. I too have tried other software programs and have found that this is the best one for me. There are many features that I have yet to explore and learn, but the more I use it the more I learn and the more fun it is.

Cons

Emails are slow in replying back. I will have to try the "chat" feature on the website in the future. Thanks for the heads-up from "oldman43" about that feature.

Summary

I will buy this again, and would highly recommend it to my stamp collecting friends and to any new collectors.

"Long time happy user"

April 24, 2014  |  By oldman43

 |  Version: StampManage Deluxe 2014

Pros

Easy to use
Easily editable

Cons

Support is weak

Summary

I fully agree with the comments that the users who gave it 4-5 stars have said. No sense repeating them.
I have been using it for many years. After my initial purchase, I encountered the same support issues and decided to look elsewhere for my program. However, after trying many different programs(both free and purchased), I concluded that StampManage was the best one....even with support issues.
Since then, I have been extremely happy with the program. The best way to get support is via the "chat" feature on the website. It is not constantly monitored, but if you keep checking the site and find a "live operator", they will answer your questions. Additionally, if you permit it, they can also look at your installation remotely and solve any issues on the spot. I think that probably most of the "computer crash" issues are not due to the program, but do to either a "weak" computer setup or operator issue of some type. If "crashing" was a major issue, he would have been out of business long ago.....and remember, people who are happy typically don't write reviews....for every negative review, there are probably 100 people who are happy and just haven't been vocal about it.

One nice feature is the ability to export this to Microsoft Excel. By doing this, I am able to put my collection on my Android tablet and smartphone (Ipad also) that I can carry around to stamp shows etc.

I would buy this again, and would highly recommend it to my stamp collecting friends.

"NO response to problems. Data Incomplete,prices missing"

April 18, 2014  |  By michaellep

 |  Version: StampManage Deluxe 2014

Pros

Cheap
Cannot say anything good as I could not use it long enough before it stops working.

Cons

Took Over 9 hours to setup.
Difficult to use.
Program CRASHES my Win 8 computer & I have to reboot.
I spent several hours trying to figure out how to enter data & why there was so much data missing. None of the countries are complete
(did not check canada or united states - i don't collect them ).

Many countries have no data other than a scott number and even then, those are not complete. (why not Stanley Gibbons #'s?).

Wrong information for many countries. Some have data for the wrong country (no quality control).

Sparse images and most are low quality - not the high resolution claimed.

Repeatedly I keep getting an ERROR 3001 and an error 11 and then it hangs up my system.

Quality control is non existent in this program - not surprising though as evidenced by the complete lack of response to problems.

Summary

I am very unhappy with this program. I bought it because it was cheaper than some other programs, but I guess that was a big mistake. I wish I had read the reviews about this company. There is absolutely no support for this program. No phone # to call so you are left hanging. I tried re-installing it ( another 9 hours wasted ) and got the same issue.
I finally gave up and uninstalled it (that took over 2 hours also ) and got my money back.
My advice to anyone considering this program is that you are on your own - expect no support. I want a program that I can rely on if I am going to spend so much time entering my valuable collection.
Hope this helps someone else

"Very Disappointing product & company"

April 05, 2014  |  By stampnut9

 |  Version: StampManage 2013

Pros

Absolutely none.

Cons

NO SUPPORT. Tried for 3 weeks to get help with email and their stupid forum. the countries/data are utterly full of errors and missing data. I collect many countries, including Brazil, & their data is pathetically lacking. Extremely inconsistent entry of data. looks like it was put together in a mad rush & it shows.
I entered a new country they were missing & all seemed OK. Then I realized it was all placed into the wrong country by the program. Crashed regularly. I would not trust my data & time with this software.complete waste of time & money. Very frustrating. Company does not respond to questions or problems. They are quick to take your money though. I would stay far away from this product and company.

Summary

Although it is cheap, I would not recommend this to anyone. You are in for trouble right from the get go. Since there is NO SUPPORT, it's useless. I received this as a gift and it has wasted my time & caused me utter frustration. Does not run on Win 8.1, so I was forced to use it on win 7(my old machine). I will be looking into other products. What a horrible experience.

"does not work. company does not respond to problems"

February 15, 2014  |  By corrysmaile68

 |  Version: StampManage 2013

Pros

impossible to say as I could not run it long enough but images that I did see were definitely not high quality and there was a large amount of information missing (especially prices). was able to use it for about 30 minutes before it crashed & burned after spending 7.5 hours to install!!!
worst of all is that they ignore all emails & they have no phone 3 to call for help

Cons

program crashes with errors (schema error??, missing files)
several attempts to get help went unanswered. had to request refund from credit card company (was a retirement gift)

Summary

not worth it. very frustrating experience and a great waste of time.
i would not recommend this product or company. i have since found a program that works right out of the box am am very please with it.

"Sophisticated Stamp Database Program"

January 18, 2014  |  By imdivine1

 |  Version: StampManage 2013

Pros

Easy to utilize stamp database program organized under Scott numbering system. Input is simple and multiple inputs are made easy by maintaining identical criteria for new stamps. Many specific reports can by generated, by stamp, by year, by date or by collection or you can tailor your own reports. Can also view stamp information on screen in numerous ways. I especially like the ability to add your own images of stamps (up to 4 pictures) which is helpful to show both front and back of your stamps.

Cons

A little difficult to add new stamps with new Scott numbers that were not originally included in the program or to change a Scott number.

Summary

I love the program and have used it since 2007. I have input more than 3500 stamps of all varieties, including sheets, booklets and plate blocks into StampManage. Anyone who has a stamp collection that they would like to monitor easilty would benefit from this program.

"Really Useful Program"

January 02, 2014  |  By FrankieXJS

 |  Version: StampManage 2013

Pros

1. Gives you an easy, intuitive way to catalog your stamp collection whether it be small or large.
2. Pictures, descriptions of stamps make it easy to identify exactly which variety your looking at.
3. Gives you a way to determine the value of every stamp and the value of your entire collection,
4. Allows you to create printed listings of all the stamps in your collection,
5. Provides the ability to create a list of your stamp needs to fulfill your collection.
6. Reasonably priced.

Cons

1. Entering pairs, blocks of 4 and anything other than single stamps is a little complicated but doable.

Summary

I have been an amateur stamp collector for about 50 years collecting US stamps. Until I got this program I kept track of all my stamps using Microsoft Excel. It worked, but was pretty limited in its functionality. StampManage actually got me to be more interested in my collection and spend more time on it. It's a very useful and maybe essential tool for collectors.

"Steller Value & Feature Rich! - A+++++"

June 20, 2013  |  By pjjawilson

 |  Version: StampManage 2013

Pros

I have used Liberty Street StampManage for 7 years. (2006 + 2009)
Amazing number of Countries, Categories and Stamp Images.
More Reports available than I will ever use. (can be customized)
A Search Engine that actually "works" really well !
Ability to "add" anything not found in the database and attach images of "your" stamps.
Total "Price" control.
Exports and Imports several common file formats.
Extensive note pages available.
Printable Want List.
Stamp Identifier - Lookup by Year, Denomination, text string, or by one or more (16) different attributes.
Add Attachments to your "record".
Create "File Cards" I use 8-1/2x11 loose-leaf pages with graphics.
Many "Keyboard Shortcuts".
Database Manager and Backup.
View in Browser is available.
Clone Records.
StampManage Forum is available on their web site.
This Software exceeds all my needs and expectations ! ! !

Cons

New Manual Entries are somewhat Labor Intensive.
File Imports are much eaiser and quick.
Support is not internet "Instant" but they ALWAYS respond and have solved every issue I have ever encountered.
No database compact/repair, recover, rebuild or compress tool.

Summary

* * * READ * * * your User Guide, or you will miss out using many of the best StampManager features.

I'm a retired Computer Systems Administrator and I'm really critical (picky) about any software I personally own and use. I rate Liberty Street StampManager a solid 9.95 ! ! ! I highly recommend it !

In case I didn't stress it enough:
* * * READ YOUR MANUAL * * * I guarantee familiarity with the instructions will alleviate many, many, ...many hours of "FRUSTATION" ...banging your head on your monitor or desk.

"Used 10 years Excellent Application Terrible Support"

May 16, 2013  |  By bcottun

 |  Version: StampManage 2013

Pros

1. Lot of countries.
2. Lot of stamp entries
3. Lot of stamp photos
4. Not expensive
5. Annual updates generally worth the price
6. Used for 10 years, will continue to use
7. Users can manually set catalog values
8. Users can manually add stamps, catagories and countries to database.

Cons

1. Application support is non-existant
2. Most new entries are created and submitted by users
3. Data quality control is poor
4. Catalog values are not equal to Scott catalog values
5. It takes a lot of manual data entry if you want to catalog your entire collection.

Summary

I have been using StampManager for ten years and have a lot of time invested in building my inventory. I have contributed over over four thousand entries to the database. The application is very user friendly once you read the manual and make a few dozen entries. The database contains hundreds of countries with an excellent breakdown by catagory within each country.

There is little data quality control so you will find incorrect information throughout the catagories. Perf sizes in color column, misspellings, etc.

That said, the application has every feature I want in an inventory app. It is inexpensive when compared to some of the apps with better quality control.

If you are willing to take the time to learn how to use the application and then spend more time manually entering much of the info you want to include in your inventory StampManager is a good buy.
