    Question Determining the right DB for me

    Hi all,

    I was recently hired to a company of 3 people that are not technologically-savy at all. On that note, I'm still in college at VT and do not have enough experience to make any firm decisions for what kind of program they would want for these requirements:

    • Contact database
    • Online accessible
    • Password protected
    • Non-downloadable
    • Split into categories (e.g. tech, life sciences, pharma)
    • Searchable by names or categories
    • Need to be able to cut off client access should they cancel their contract
    • Preferably only one contact’s full details viewable at a time
    • Preferably iPhone-compatible at some point in the near future

    I have the time to learn a programming language if necessary but would rather not if theres a program that can do it. My boss said something similar to ACT! is what they're looking for. If you guys have any suggestions I would highly appreciate it!!

    Thanks,
    Scott S.

    I've heard that even a site such a Zoho would work but after playing around with it I couldn't see how. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    this is not really a database question

    you're looking for an application

    since you say it has to be online, my advice is to go to a web development forum (e.g. sitepoint.com/forums) and ask what sorts of apps and/or web services people have used, that might meet your requirements
