View Full Version : need a company program for constulting
02-18-2003, 02:57 PM
is there a program that lets u put information regarding companies and employees and info whats some examples
its for a friend im not sure what his company is but if u guys know any programs plz let me know :P
like a database..
Any database program would work. Hell, if they are running a Microsoft Exchange server they can simply set up a global address book.
You could even create a simple contact sheet in Excel or Word.
There are a dozen possibilites, perhaps you could have your friend clarify exactly what they want as your post was very very vague.

Sounds like maybe you're looking for a CRM system - customer relationship management - where you can enter info about contacts, companies, meetings, sales cycles, etc?
If that's what you're looking for, there are about a million out there, depending on the size of your friend's company. Smaller ones include Outlook, Goldmine, Act!, Lotus Notes, etc. You can go all the way up to a totally customized enterprise system from Siebel, SAP, PeopleSoft, Vantive, etc. but at that level you're talking hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.
If he's just running a small business, I'd recommend Act! (http://www.act.com/) or even just start out with Outlook & see if that meets his needs.
I would not recommend Peoplesoft. I used it for 6 months doing some accounting work. Granted it was for Thomson Financial which alone has over 170 divisions/entities. In any case, I found that the program was:
2) not user-friendly
4) did i mention it's not user-friendly?
5) costs to maintain are enormously high since it's built around oracle db.

DON'T DON'T DON'T TOUCH LOTUS NOTES. It's old, slow, and really dumb.
We use it at work, and most of us curse at it...ok...just me, but still it's bad.
