A friend of mine runs a small rental company for lights and audio equipment. He uses 'insphire' on a windows machine. Being tired of viruses he wants to switch to Mac. Does anybody know of the existence of rental database software for the Mac? I could only find a Filemaker based solution but that requires -on top of the cost of the application- Filemaker server and 4 Filemaker seats (almost 2000 Euro all together) which is really overkill for his situation.

Thanks,

Arjen

Filemaker also makes Bento , not sure if that will fit the purpose, take a look

Bento (http://www.filemaker.com/products/bento/features.html?homepage=new-bento3)

May be they have some templates similar to this

Thanks, but I don't think Bento has a server so multiple users can use the database at the same time. I'll look into it.

Is there not a web based solution?
