Looking For A Database With Brains? RegPack Is Much More Than Simple Forms.

Once you get your web site up and running, one of the next services you need is a way to gather information.

Be it a simple form for event registration (you might as well just use Eventbrite) or a form to capture customer information (Google Docs forms, WuFoo come to mind) or maybe you want a bit more complexity (then Formstack, Quickbase, Trackvia, come to mind). Or maybe you need a “full blown” database solution then the three solutions for you to consider are Microsoft Access, File Maker Pro or Alpha Software.

Of course if you need a form that interacts with your CUSTOMERS than all the CRM providers such as Infusionsoft (my employer), Zoho, BatchBook, have web forms you can easily embed in your web site or blog to capture information.

There’s a new online form/database service that I’ve been looking at, RegPack which offers the form (data entry) you need but with advanced intelligence. For example, as your user fills out their RegPack powered form, only what you want them to see is displayed – based on who they are – with conditional logic.

I also like RegPack’s trigger based communication system – based on what people fill out – you can be alerted and your team can quickly communicate with applicants. Maybe you have a form and if someone is from Texas and owns an oil well you want o immediately call them – you can do this with RegPack.

RegPack starts from free to $149 per month and this includes a ‘digital concierge’  who actually creates the RegPack form for you.
