Unanswered: Which software to use?
I am working for a small company and we are thinking about finally giving up on excel and moving onwards to use a database to organise our business. We don't have a lot of data that will need to be kept, we just want our system to enable us to send (annual, quarterly, half-yearly,..) emails to our clients such that they can give us the information we need.
I know that Access can do this, but are there other software packages with the same functionality? Ideally the software is very easy to master since I will probably have to design it myself (and I have no experience whatsoever). Low cost would be a plus too, of course.
It would be great if you could give me your opinion. If you need more details, I can give further descriptions of what I have in mind right now, but I don't want to put these out here directly (don't want to scare you off).
Thanks in advance,
