Make the leap from manual spreadsheets that are almost always out-of-date to dynamic, online databases and web forms. Use online databases and web forms to capture and store information in real time, such as contact information or inventory levels. You can also use custom workflow to automate key business processes, such as submitting work orders, creative briefs or employee time-off requests.
iMeet® Central generates HTML code that you can customize and paste into any website, so it’s easy to create landing pages that let customers, prospects and other third parties fill out forms that automatically update your database.
You can filter and sort your databases based on logic you set, and then save the views so that you can easily navigate to specific record sets. For example, you can view work orders submitted yesterday or see customers from California who spent more than $1,000.
Choose from a comprehensive list of field types. In addition to standard options, such as text, numeric, checkbox and dropdown lists, you can also store more sophisticated types of data, such as web links, images and rich text.
Create parent-child databases to store complex information. For example, you could create a parent database called Customer and a child database called Invoices, which would allow you to tie together all the invoices billed to a specific customer.
Formulas and Calculations
Automatically calculate field values based on mathematical formulas. For example, you could keep a running total of available inventory by creating a “units available” field that subtracts “units sold” from “units ordered.”
Automatically send email notifications and assign to-dos when database records are created, modified or deleted. For example, if a new work order comes in requesting that a logo be resized, iMeet Central can automatically assign the task to your graphic designer.
Commenting and Discussions
Team members can comment on database records and attach related files. For example, if you had a database that tracked job applicants, you could attach each applicant’s resume and gather interview feedback right in each database record.
Database Import and Export
You can create and update databases by importing data from Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet programs. You can also export your databases to spreadsheet-compatible .CSV files.
iMeet Central comes standard with out-of-the-box database templates that do the heavy lifting for you when it comes to creating contact lists, employee directories, product catalogs, asset trackers and event-registration systems.
Click to Edit
Simply click a pencil icon to edit data in almost any field, from any type of view. This saves you time, because you don’t have to explicitly open a record for editing in order to make corrections.
