Dear colleagues,

Does anybody know of any good programs/software to use for contact and database management?

We are currently working with two networks of practitioners and are searching for:

  1. a system to store and update network partner's contact information that can be accessed and edited by multiple users;
  2. a system to manage a wide array of documents and resources that can be accessed and updated by multiple users. This would include categorizing and tagging articles, websites, organizations, initiatives, projects, programs, case studies, and video links in a way that our team could easily access/search these resources and include written descriptions/notes on them.

I appreciate your feedback and experiences!

Capacity Development & Partnerships, WBI Washington, DC
