Does anyone know what would work good as an online/browser-accessible database (for tracking of daily reports, quality control, etc..).
The company I work for uses an old, clunky access database on Microsoft Access 2010.
The database is used by about 5 or 6 different people but more than one person can not use it at any given time because it causes alot of problems.
This particular database has been around in our company for a long time and whenever we've needed to create a new one, we did. This old database has alot of problems and our company wants to use new forms that aren't programmed in to the existing database.
Up to this point we've just dealt with it being problematic because it works - sort of.
Training people is very difficult with the old access database also just because how it works is confusing - to the point of being ridiculous.
Plus, anytime we want to add new users to the database it has to be programmed in to the user tables first. What a nightmare.
More importantly, the company wants a database platform that can be used throughout the company (by multiple people at once).
Microsoft Access - to my knowledge - wouldn't work as a platform. You can install an Access 2010 database on a server and have it accessible through a web browser but it requires a certain kind of server config.
A config that our company doesn't have...
So I'm trying to figure out what would work for multiple people at once, be accessible through a web browers (by any device), and something that I could program to be able to write data to some of our company forms if possible.
Any ideas would be helpful.
