How We Help

We offer practical solutions that drive your business productivity and keep you up to date with technology shifts.

As tech consultants, we understand that businesses and companies must develop apps particular to their business operations, from online stores to staff networking apps to customer service apps. In the wrong hands, those projects can come with significant downsides. The cost of releasing sensitive company information or working with acclaimed experts who are not empathetic enough to meet the specific needs of helpless clients can be overwhelming. A premier database management system helps you save money and deliver like tech experts.

Microsoft Access is a database management system developed by Microsoft. It is a fantastic package that provides a proper database system and simulates programming skills to help users effectively create, analyze, and manage data and apps.

Exploring Microsoft Access Use Cases

Microsoft Access is a database management system (DBMS) that combines software programming and development tools with the Access Database Engine (ACE), all on a highly graphical user interface. Microsoft Access operates by storing data based on the design of the Access Database Engine. It can also work with data stored on other databases or applications by importing such data or linking to the source location to access the data.

While data architects, power users, and software developers may use Microsoft Access to build software, the user interface is simple enough to help new users find their way around as well. Microsoft Access is VBA-supported. It's supported by Microsoft's object-based language for programming, which can reference ActiveX Data Objects, Legacy Data Access Objects, and several other components of ActiveX.

Why Resultant Leverages Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access links to more proprietary software than any other database system, allowing users to remain within the Microsoft family of products that they are accustomed to using.

Access is far less expensive than competitors' database systems, which require a substantial financial commitment for setup and maintenance costs. Access is easily scalable to fit the diverse needs of small, medium, and large organizations.

The Benefits Our Clients Experience

You don't have to be a developer to create and share apps.

Perhaps the most relevant benefit to non-developers, Access comes with an easy interface, making it a straightforward tool for developing business applications. It offers templates and may also allow the user to build from scratch. Its tools are intuitive and enable you to get a functional app running in no time.

Customize apps to grow with your business

Beyond creating apps, you can continually tweak the apps you've designed to align with your ever-evolving business needs. Access has a linked table manager that serves as a central location for viewing and managing all data sources and tables. As data changes, these linked tables can be added, deleted, and modified in real-time. With VBA, you can automatically fit manual business processes and create more effective forms.

Integrate with multiple data sources

Microsoft Access can also work with other line-of-business apps. It integrates their data by using the Access connector library to generate aggregated insights and graphics in the familiar Access user interface. It enhances security, scalability, long-term manageability, and reliability by storing Microsoft Azure SQL and SQL Server data.
