MS Access is a database program in the Microsoft Office suite. We are frequently asked why we suggest Microsoft Access over alternative databases. Therefore here is a list of the features and advantages we believe Microsoft Access offers.
Offers quick access to database
Microsoft Access is a great tool for building custom systems with databases at their core. It comes with a number of wizards to help you create a database application quickly, as well as a lot of ready-to-use features. We find that development time for an expert specializing in MS Access is about half of what it takes to create the same system on a different platform. This is a significant benefit. It leads to a cost savings for you, and it means that turn-around times from conception to delivery are usually only a few weeks.
Allows you to create flexible db systems
This is where access really shines. There is no need for anything in your system to be set in stone! While it is not as rapid to make modifications as it is to design systems in the first place, it is still significantly faster to make changes in Access than in other programs.
If you need to add additional parts to your system, you can usually do so as rapidly as generating anything new. In reality, this implies that Access is ideal for real-world business situations. Things change, and your system can evolve along with them – without breaking the bank or causing extensive delays. Looking to import or export Microsoft Access data into Epic?

Creates user-friendly applications
You might be able to create a very basic database in Access on your own. However, with a little help from a competent VBA programmer, a database may be transformed into a completely functional user-friendly application. One can easily use programming codes to create a user-friendly interface or automate processes. The end result is always an easy-to-use solution that fits your company’s operations.
You can get support easily
Many developers, programmers, and software organizations are familiar with Access and its VBA programming language. This means that if you use Microsoft Access to build a system, you won’t be tied to the individual who built it for you. So you won’t be left high and dry if they leave or retire. However, one key to remember is that you must have the source files. .mdb or.accdb files, .mde or.accde files are not source files. These can’t be inspected or modified by some other programmer.
MS Access capabilities are improving
Access improves with each edition of Microsoft Office, adding new features. You may now link your fully functional desktop Access application to your data in the Cloud thanks to changes to SharePoint Lists and their interface with Access. For some businesses, this can be really beneficial.
These are a handful of the benefits of using MS Access for a business. You can get in touch with MS Access experts to know how to integrate MS access to your existing system.
