Do you have database needs which aren't being met?
Don't wait any longer. The solution is within your grasp.
A custom Microsoft Access® database may very well be the answer to your needs. There are lots of application development tools available - some very complex, very expensive and very often, an overkill for the application requirement. Check out MS Access first.
Why a Database?
Spreadsheets of data can take you just so far. Consider the amount of time spent re-entering data, performing repetitive tasks, manipulating and copying data from place to place, manually piecing together reports on a regular basis. An MS Access database application will put an end to all that and open the door to endless possibilities.
Why Custom Built?
Why settle for over the counter, canned software? Will you ever find "exactly" what you need? Why make due with a solution that is limited in scope, limited in the reports you can generate, and one which offers no flexibility as needs change? A custom MS Access database is "defined" by you, targeted to your specific needs, and offers the flexibility of change as needed.
MS Access, though robust in its capabilities, is one of the simpler application development tools out there. Despite this, it still proves to be a challenge to learn. Few employers are willing to invest the resources in the training necessary to gain the in-house expertise required to accomplish more than the most basic of databases. Why settle for a make shift solution and live with limitations that are easily overcome by someone with the proper knowledge? Outsourcing your database needs is the efficient, most expedient, choice.
Why Standalone or Client-Server rather than the Cloud?
Cloud and mobile computing is the trend but sometimes you don’t want your data “out there” stored where you no longer feel in control – where you no longer feel it is totally safe. Security breaches and hackers are real. For those database needs where safe and secure on your own PC or server is preferable – a standalone or client-server application is the answer. Add to this the readily available capability of remote desktop from any device and your standalone/client-server application just became mobile while still providing “I’m in control of my data” security.
Why the Cloud?
The Cloud can also be desirable. Rather than the expense of local servers and I.T. personnel to maintain and support, pass the responsibility on to the Cloud provider to take care of the hardware, supporting software and data backups. Microsoft Access applications can be uploaded to the cloud along with any backend data stored in an Access or SQL Server database.
