Construction firm takes Microsoft Access application mobile and saves 50% in time & costs.
Thousands of legacy applications have been built using Microsoft Access, and are still chugging away. In its time, Microsoft Access was a popular choice among developers who wanted to quickly build apps. Developers often built apps in combination with a Microsoft SQL Server backend.
Unfortunately, Microsoft Access has a very serious shortcoming: You can't use it to build mobile apps or Web portals. Microsoft Access is designed to build desktop applications ONLY. So what's a developer to do if he has an old Access application and wants to turn it mobile? Access developers need to find an alternative.
That's exactly the situation that one services company CTG3 recently faced. CTG3 wanted to replace its Microsoft Access desktop application with a Web portal so that its agents could more easily do their work anywhere.
And it wanted to build a new consumer service, CarrierFinder.Net, that would allow consumers to check what telecomm services are available. They needed a Microsoft Access alternative that would allow them to replace their access applications quickly. CTG3 found Alpha Anywhere was "a great fit and was the closest thing I could find to Access for the Web. It let me build what I wanted with very little work."
The benefits? Tens of thousands of dollars in savings in development costs and a faster time to market.

Two of the most critical issues facing Microsoft Access developers today are: how to move their legacy Access desktop applications to the web and mobile devices as today's users are demanding, and how to extend the longevity of their existing Microsoft Access apps by adding web and mobile functionality.
