  • Business database??

    Anyone know of a good customer, mileage, expenses, invoinces, etc....business tracking database that is user friendly? I'm currently using a few different products and would like to use something that is all in one. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    If you want to keep it really simple, and your database isn't that big, then you might try the bargain bin at your local CompUSA, Office Depot, or Office Max. I've seen $9.99 contact management software that includes timekeeping, mileage, billing, etc.

    Otherwise, you might try something like ACT!, TimeSlips, or QuickBooks. All have downloadable or online trial versions, run about $200, and pretty simple to use. They also have a lot more features than what you're looking for -- not that you need to get into all those advance features.

      Thanks Jonnymag!

      Hey man, thanks for the help on this! I'll take a look at the three you suggested. I think I heard a commercial the other day for the Quickbooks, I just couldn't remember the name of it. Thank you

          Microsoft.com

          There are some great templates available for free on
          http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/te...s/default.aspx

          There are databases (if you have Access) as well as pre-written generic forms and documents.

          Hope that helps

            Change over

            When is the change over going to happen? I am putting off registering on the motor site because I thought the change would have happened by now. Alot of questions over there should be asked here, but I can not respond because I have not signed up there yet.

                Yeah, I probably should so they can hate me over there to, spread the love, right.

                  Well I'm sure you'd fit right in then...if you hadn't noticed the tone is a little different over there
