Hi there, I need some help on finding a business program/application for our business. My partner and myself are starting a business. My partner is a certified CPR/First Aid trainer and she has asked me to try to find a program where we can maintain a database of about 600 clients, and where we can also find out from the program who needs to be retrained, maybe like a reminder, because CPR/first aid certificates expire and some health professionals need to be re-certified annually. With such a program, we also need to do Accounts Payable and Account Receivable.

Any information and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You! :thumbsup:

You can get Microsoft Office Access program or here is a site that has a list of programs both free and pay.

You are aware that any database program will come with a learning curve right?

For your AR and AP check into QuickBooks.
Its really good accounting software
Intuit makes it.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Another thing to consider:

Call (or go in person) local ambulance companies. You could also check with a few home health agencies.

Ask them how they keep up with who needs to be re-certified. Do they use software for it? If they do, ask for the name of the program(s).
