AMS Point of Sale

It is very well suited for areas where automation comes into play. For ex:: It does really well when it comes to purchase order related tasks.

Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access is a decent and productive data access and analysis tool and can be well suited for small to medium sized organization. It can manage normal databases very effectively and generate business value reports for the enterprises. It is not an ideal option for the organizations with larger databases.

Pros

AMS Point of Sale

  • Billing management
  • Invoice related tasks
  • Inventory
Ashish Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Access

  • One good aspect of Microsoft Access is how the software can be customized for different applications. This is very useful because we are able to use this software for multiple applications, which makes it cost-friendly.
  • Another strong point of Microsoft Access is the skill required to customize, the amount of programming required is less than most other database programs. This is good for a beginner looking to get into database management.
  • Microsoft Access is one of the more cost-friendly database applications, and most of the time it comes with Microsoft Office. Other database programs can be expensive and not as easy to use.

Cons

AMS Point of Sale

  • It can be a bit improved in terms of Billing
  • It can also bring some of the core features needed in Return management that it offers
  • It needs a bit of improvement in Return management

Microsoft Access

  • Well, it requires a lot more training or research than other more "intuitive" Microsoft products.
  • The buildout of custom reports is highly complex, and I think that area, in particular, could be more intuitive.
  • Queries can be difficult to develop if you don't know the right language or terminology, and I think that those terms could be better visible in the ribbon.

I and the rest of my team will renew our Microsoft Access in the future because we use and maintain many different applications and databases created using Microsoft Access so we will need to maintain them in the future. Additionally, it is a standard at our place of work so it is at $0 cost to us to use. Another reason for renewing Microsoft Access is that we just don' t have the resources needed to extend into a network of users so we need to remain a single-desktop application at this time.

Microsoft Access is easy to use. It is compatible with spreadsheets. It is a very good data management tool. There is scope to save a large amount of data in one place. For using this database, one does not need much training, can be shared among multiple users. This database has to sort and filtering features which seem to be very useful.

I don't think the program has ever failed me. It is one of those programs where there is always a solution if you know where to look.

While I have never contacted Microsoft directly for product support, for some reason there's a real prejudice against MS Access among most IT support professionals. They are usually discouraging when it comes to using MS Access. Most of this is due to their lack of understanding of MS Access and how it can improve one's productivity. If Microsoft invested more resources towards enhancing and promoting the use of MS Access then maybe things would be different.

UI is good in AMS POS than Epos now

Microsoft Access

FileMaker Pro focuses more on data collection in a single, flat file while Access allows for relationships to be drawn between data tables the reduces duplication. I have not worked with FileMaker Pro for several years but found it to be very unwieldy for my needs which were mostly relational.

Return on Investment

AMS Point of Sale

  • Overall Business problems are getting addressed which is a good thing
Ashish Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Access

  • Access runs many business processes. They mainly begin with a manual process that someone developed on their desktop with MS Access. As the process matures, is refined and becomes a dependency, it is then moved away from Access onto more enterprise-grade software.
  • Access helps us provide quick ad-hoc reporting to management without an expensive Business Intelligence license.
  • For number crunchers, Access is a must-have.
