Something they can easily manage.Simply done with PageTree CMS... just drag in the fields to a form you want your client to fill out (ie. name, title, bio, photo, contact info)... save the form, and blammo, you now have a mini-app mapped to a database.
Within minutes, you have a custom database-driven mini-app ready for clients to use. No searching for plugins, no manipulating custom content fields, just easy drag n' drop data-mapping + full control of layouts.
