Thanks James. 

I was thinking along the lines of an app we use here called DocRecord by Prism. An entry in the database is actually a collection of any kind of document you can read from the file system. So for example, everything related to the sale and installation of a copier, the proposal, contract, lease, site survey etc. are all a part of a collection. Adobe has their own device for this, but so far as I know only accept PDFs.
