Best Database for Inventory

Last Modified: 2017-12-11
At some point in the next six months, I have to create a database for my department's inventory.  Currrently, the department is using Excel 2013.  The database only has about twenty fields.  However, Ideally, I would like several departments to use it.  In the past, I have used Access for these databases.  However, my concern is that sometimes in the past Access gets corrupted.  Especially, when using through the network.  I have not used Access in a while, so not sure if it is more robust now or not.  Or, I would like to know if any database expert may have a different opinion and/or suggestion.  Thanks in advance.
