Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access is being used in selective departments as of now [...] but is [...] being used in almost all branches of our company. We have data coming in from multiple sources, and Microsoft Access makes it really easy to collate and format the data [...] so that it can be processed into usable forms.

  • User-friendly
  • Very easy to use

Cons

  • Sometimes files get corrupted
  • Backups are often required
  • Slows down the system
  • Saves a lot of time
  • User interface is simple
  • Excellent for managing local data
  • Definitely positive ROI
  • Reduced man hours considerably
  • Very easy to integrate
  • Import/export feature increases productivity noticeably
Although SQL is a full-blown platform for heavy database management, Microsoft Access serves the purpose perfectly for small and mid-scale enterprises. It is also perfect for people just getting started with database management. The graphical user interface is a major plus point, and it is very easy to use even for beginners.

Although Microsoft Access may have a few shortcomings, [...] the pros [really] outweigh them and make this a perfect choice for a database management software. The user interface is fairly simple and can be used by anyone, with minimal or zero knowledge about SQL. It is also easy to learn and grasp if you're just getting started with database management.
