inexperienced question about what platform to use

    Hi folks

    Looking for some advice, I have some experience of databases, but no real expertise...

    The people I work for are a training provider, and need a database solution to keep track of the following:

    - training courses we set up
    - venues for the training
    - attendees at the training, details captured when they book
    - evaluation data from the attendees after the training
    SEMrush
    we'd need to be able to pull off reports such as: seeing one individual with a summary of all the different courses he's attended, along with his evaluation data for each of those courses

    Just wondering what's the modern, easy way to do this? Database needs to be accessed by people in different remote locations. What system is best to use for this?

    Grateful for any advice!

    Alex

    I foolishly neglected to mention that it would need to be Windows AND Mac compatible, as users would have a mix of machines....

    Create an online based service, using simple HTML and CSS and PHP / MySQL? It will easily fulfill all your needs, will be reachable from any location with Internet, and can be scaled as needed. You can create different access levels so admin-users can modify/update/enter information, other users can see their own progress etc.

    Easily done as a website with MySQL on the backend - I'd be very surprised if you couldn't find an off the shelf product is already available. Whatever you spend in licensing will be recouped in time saved.
