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).
Msaccess get my vote as you be able to import the excel data into msaccess
Then the future could be a web site where customer get there stuff.
hope this help
