There really is no limit on the types of applications that can be built with Microsoft Access. Accounting, order management, inventory, contact management, estimating, and project management are just a few types. For example, some companies find that available accounting software packages do not give them the flexibility they need to capture their accounting information and choose to build a custom Access application designed specifically for their business needs. The same holds true for order and inventory management.
Microsoft makes available many Microsoft Access templates for common needs such as contact management, inventory, etc. which can be customized further to meet a particular business need. These templates are available on the Microsoft.com website. Regardless of whether an existing template exists, Microsoft Access can Be used to design powerful, multi-user applications that can drive extraordinary efficiencies in your business.
