Helpful tips on how to replace Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access has been a stalwart in the database space for years. Ever since its debut in 1992, businesses everywhere have trusted it as their go-to database management system for workflows and data tracking. But, as with all things technological, if it doesn’t evolve, it dies. And that’s what we’re seeing with MS Access now.

Lucky for you, there’s a much better option for businesses looking for an end-of-life alternative to MS Access. It’s Quick Base, and for those of you who’ve been stuck using MS Access in the past, it will absolutely rock your world. You can find a quick primer of why Quick Base will quickly make you forget Access here.

As you can see in the link above, Quick Base wins for several reasons. One, it’s much easier to use. Two, it’s fully customizable. Three, it’s web based (not server side.) And four, you have us to act as your expert helpers in making your migration from MS Access to Quick Base. Let’s take a look at these points in a little more detail. 

  1. Easier to use.
    Everyone wants ease of use, especially when it comes to something as inherently clunky as a database tool. With Quick Base, you get an intuitive interface that puts just what you need at your fingertips at all times.
  2. Fully customizable.
    Quick Base lets you work your way. MS Access forced you to comb through thousands of spreadsheets to find your information. Quick Base can help you with the tracking of clients, projects, inventory—whatever. You can even tailor it down to the tables of information and the relationships within that information. Everything’s as you like it, meaning everything’s more efficient and cost effective.
  3. In the cloud.
    Because it’s more centralized than MS Access, Quick Base is far more powerful. That means you can have all of your information—reports, forms, notifications and more—at the ready, no matter where you are.
  4. VeilSun’s expertise.
    We’re the perfect partner to help you transition away from Microsoft Access. We’ll take a look at your existing workflows and what is being accomplished with that database, make assumptions, assess options and ultimately reengineer a vastly superior solution with Quick Base that your entire team will benefit from.
