Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access is used throughout the organization for the capture, management, and communication of data in a professional manner and for the administration of databases considering that it provides a series of easily accessible work tools that staff can quickly understand their tools and in this way, implement them in the tasks related to the process of organization of information in databases. The problems solved are basically based on the organization of information, and standardization of information for the analysis of data necessary for decision making to facilitate the growth and development of the company.
  • Facilitate the integration of databases provided by Windows-based development programs.
  • It is compatible with widely used programs that are not necessarily from Microsoft such as Oracle and Sybase.
  • You have the possibility of placing the information processed in the databases online.
  • It is one of the programs that work with the most popular databases in the world, therefore, it does not require expenses in training activities or the hiring of very specialized personnel, thus being a saving for the company.
  • Microsoft Access should seek the option to increase its capacity to greater than 2GB so all the company can use it without a problem, currently, it's used by small and medium enterprises.
  • I think they can expand the option of expanding the capacity of users allowed for large organizations to use.
  • Microsoft Access is not the best database tool for immediate use but for long-term work.
  • Among the tools that may hinder its use are that Access has a relatively low design compared to other programs. It is difficult to customize and adapt to the controls and forms at the beginning.
  • The impact has been positive because with the use of Microsoft Access it has been possible to optimize a series of processes that have favored in general line the work of the company.
  • The systematization of the information in Access databases has prevented duplication of information, therefore, we have had the possibility of planning with real results and not assumptions of results that gave us tools such as Excel.
  • The consolidation of the information provides us with data for the analysis of results, consequently, to identify the problems that we later wish to correct, and in this way, to avoid the loss of time and expenses of more personnel.
  • The grouping of data in an organized manner allowed the company to design a set of real strategies aimed at improving the profitability of the company. to date, the results have been positive because since access was implemented, the profit of the company has improved.
It is a program that is compatible with many others, which is an excellent advantage considering that the most used package in the company is Microsoft Office. thus a savings for the company.

It's a program that has all the work tools required by the organization to function properly and fulfill the tasks envisaged.

In the company, it is necessary to continuously import data to carry out the respective data analysis for the decision making, and Access offers a user-friendly and pleasant option that imports it without difficulty.

  • Microsoft Access adapts well in departments where databases do not have much content, or where you do not have to perform complex programming or require working with many variables.
  • Microsoft Access does not adapt well in organizations that require the management of large information content or where many variables must be included, or large companies that require the continuous management of results.
