We build custom databases for running and growing small businesses.

Ten Things to Look for in a Database

  1. multiple users, each with needs-based permissions; ability to have people in multiple locations
     
  2. web-based, can access from anywhere -- in today's world there's no reason you can't access your business's database from anywhere        -- Check in on things while on vacation in Hawaii
     
  3. security  (logins, role-based permissions, an established platform, things that need to be encrypted are encrypted, capability to open up part of your database to customers or vendors while restricting their access to everything else)
     
  4. capability to keep and store any type of info you need (including image graphics, Word docs, PDFs, marketing collateral, and files)
     
  5. capability to have email triggers/alerts sent whenever certain conditions are met (to team members, to customers)
     
  6. notes, notes, notes, notes – should be able to add notes to most everything
     
  7. excellent awesome reporting capabilities
     
  8. automatic off-site backup
     
  9. ease of use / small learning curve while powerful for power user
     
  10. database structure designed, built, maintained, and supported by experts who understand your business well  (Done right this can be MUCH less expensive than having an IT person on staff who perhaps isn't an expert and might not be able to grasp your business’s intricacies either way.)
