to me it sounds like your needs could be met with a decent database setup.
You could set this up yourself, with a minumum amount of fuss, using a good
database program such a Paradox.
I haven't heard of anyone marketing such a product, you may find it
easier/cheaper to invest a little time in learning how to use the program.
You might be surprised how much you can do with a good database program
once you have some basic knowledge.
Hope this helps,

I'm afraid I don't have a clever saying to put here.
