    Just wondered if anyone had any experience / feedback on using an online database? We are currently exploring database options and are looking at WebOffice – it offers a CRM database, as well as the facility to store documents online. It is an American company, so information on it has been a bit hard to come by – would appreciate any info!

    Hi jemma

    I’ve not used Salesforce, but did look at it as a possible tool for managing all or part of UK Fundraising. In the end though I chose a different content management system.
