Web based contacts for small business

We are a non-profit buying group with 3 persons in our office. We need a contact data base that can be shared including on the fly changes. We have a network, but no dedicated server. We currently are using Act 6.0, but that is getting old and problem riddled. Is there a web based contacts management that will do this or do we need to have a dedicated server and use the latest version of MS Office? The problem with the Office solution is the expense of a server OS and updates. Thanks

There is an open source application, which has a free five user version that you can simply download and install. It can run on Linux, Windows and some other platforms: <a href=”http://www.concursive.com/buydownload.shtml”>ConcourseSuite

A site that all non-profits should be aware is www.techsoup.com. They offer discounted software and a limited range of hardware to non-profits. The companies represented set their own terms, so you do need to check to see if you are qualified for the offer. As for the rest of us, we just need to sit and drool at the low prices <g>.

    Would something like a hosted Exchange service work for you? I have used Mailstreet for hosted exchange before and you can have a shared contacts and Outlook web access for $10/month per user on their current promotions. Negates the cost of the server and maintaining it. No, I do not have any affiliation with Mailstreet, just a positive experience with them.
