    I'm in the process of creating a data base from which I can manage all of my storm data. Including customer information, billing/contract inforamtion, subs, employees, invoicing, etc.

    I am looking for input as to how this database might be constructed. I'm looking for someone who perhaps uses one or has used something to manage their storms... may it be simple or more complex.

    My question is how you manage the informaton flow in the data base and what reports can be generated. Right now I'm in the brainstorm part of the project trying to come up with all that I need to incorporate in the database.

    Any suggestions or input would be appreciated.

    Just out of curiousity, what program will you be using?

    Look for a new package from C.L.I.P. for managing your snow and ice control accounts to be available soon.
