    Hi

    i've not had a mac for long but i love it and i want to create a customer database on it as i am a beauty therapist and i want to keep track of my customers & the treatments/spend with me.

    i was going to use excel but i was wondering if there was a better programme made for this sort of thing Or if there is a pos programme (thats quite cheap) that i could use as i can only find checkout and its £300 which i dont have at the moment.

    thanks

    You could do it all online for free with a sql database... Though that could be a little to complicated for what you want ;)

    Bento is highly regarded, cheap and apparently easy to use without having to learn about databases.

    With the explosion in Cloud Computing, I can't imagine using a stand-alone DB anymore. I'd try Zoho DB (http://db.zoho.com/), DabbleDB, or PerfectForms.com. Personally, I use Coghead extensively to build really slick (and easy) DB application that are 100% accessible (but secure) on the web.

    Database

    I have recently bought the mac and would like to know the best database to use for record keeping, security is a must (database protection) and also one with a reminder I.e. one,two and three year reminders. Thanks in advance Tom

    If you already have a website (if it includes databases) you could use phpmyadmin, basically means you have it where ever you go :p
