MS Access to MS SQL Web App Conversion

Custom software development services
to convert MS Access to MS SQL-based web application

Migrate to a modern, scalable, and remotely accessible web application

How we can help

Improvements seen by moving from MS Access to MS SQL-based web app

  • Reduce remote user access hurdles (removes VPN, Remote Desktop). 
  • Reduce issues that can arise from running an MS Access application in  a non-homogenous computing environment. (Different version of Windows and Office, Macs and PCs etc), such as reference conflicts and out dated libraries.
  • Scalability –  MS Access is not designed for enterprise-level applications or large amounts of data. It has a file size limitation of 2GB. MS SQL is designed for significantly larger applications. 
  • As an MS Office-based desktop application, MS Access cannot always leverage features many users have grown accustomed to with modern Web applications (e.g. friendlier user interface, mobile responsiveness).
