All businesses (big and small) need software for managing data. The question is, where will this software come from? There are two possibilities: create your own solution or buy one off the shelf. The former is expensive and the latter seldom user friendly. Faced with this hard choice, many businesses have attempted to forge a new path with Access.
The problem with Access is efficacy. Access extracts, stores, and refines data, however, its capabilities have a low-ceiling. This is because it's a database management system (DBMS) with only simple, app-like capabilities. To compete on analytics, and empower your workforce, you need custom software.
Software has an air of mystery. Fundamentally, however, it’s simple.
All applications are comprised of objects, which have two basic properties: state and behaviour. An object's state is defined by its attributes, which are distinguishing features. An object’s behaviour defines functionality and use. For example, we have an object called "Car". Car is red, a Holden, and a Commodore. This is state. Car can also move and make turns. This is behaviour.
If you have Access databases, you probably already have your state. For example, stores have sales, sales have products, products have inventory. However, your business is probably lacking in behaviour. For example, automatically updating your inventory after a sale and delivering alerts when prices change.
Uniquely, Codebots can unlock your existing Access databases by migrating your state to the cloud. Codebots users can choose from more than a dozen complex behaviours, and add these with a click.
