His work takes him to a variety of locations every week and he needs to record the time spent on each job, travel time, car mileage, the type of work he is assigned and how long the job takes against expectations. To do this more effectively Lowe was looking for a simple database solution that would record and display this information for him as he wanted. He explains:
When Bento arrived on the market, I was thrilled. It was the database I'd long been looking for, affordable and easy to use but with enough power to handle my data effectively. Bento is a great mix of usability and functionality. It's definitely not a featherweight - it's actually capable of some pretty amazing database structures but still really easy to use.
Lowe explained the frustration he'd experienced prior to Bento:
Existing time recording applications just aren't designed for the kind of work I do. They're mainly designed for project work and even then mostly for people tied to a desk. Bento on the other hand has allowed me to create a database for my specific needs.
