A Timely Coincidence

October 20, 2009  (Jeffrey Kabbe)

My wife has used a decidedly low tech approach to tracking client work while a more robust Filemaker solution is being worked on. About a month ago, my wife decided to take an interim step and get a Bento database rolling to computerize at least some of the workflow. Three days later, I got an email that Bento 3 had been released.

It’s turned out to be quite a nice surprise. Bento version 3 finally includes what was probably the first user feature request: database sharing. I am honestly not sure why this feature is buried so far down on the list because it is huge for small businesses. The ability to share a database with a few other people in your group is a perfect budget solution for new businesses and situations where you just want a “quick and dirty” solution.
