    I have been looking for studio management software and have come up with disappointing results. The current state of the field seems to fall into the following categories:

    1. Outdated database templates.
    2. Mac-only software.
    3. Trial versions created by now-defunct companies that cannot be unlocked.
    4. Ridiculously complex, prohibitively expensive enterprise resource management programs designed for $100M+ companies.
    I'm tired of spreadsheets. Spreadsheets are not good for tracking inventory (files). I'd like a relational database, actually.

    I've even tried a web-based management system on my own server but that is also very complicated and web-based applications are not idea for a studio where background processes and unnecessary network traffic have been reduced/disabled.

    It seems to me that there is a huge void in studio management software that is waiting for someone to fill it.
