Microsoft Access

Benefits of a Microsoft Access System

Microsoft Access allows for the rapid development of applications that are used by a relatively small number of users and do not require the advanced database features of a full SQL Server system. Within Access application screens and reports can be quickly developed over the database structure. Microsoft Access has the familiar look and feel of the Microsoft Office product range and may already be packaged as part of your Microsoft Office installation. Once an Access system has been created, it is also possible for end-users with knowledge of Access to maintain tables, create queries or new reports.

Is Access Right For Me?

Microsoft Access enables the rapid development of applications that will enable your business to see immediate benefits. Applications which are expected to handle less than 20 simultaneous users and store less than 1 Gigabyte of data are ideally suited to an Access system, enabling rapid application development combined with a familiar Microsoft Office interface.

ASC Software has considerable experience across a broad range of Microsoft technologies and can advise you whether Access is the right fit for your business.
