The company was using a DOS-based FoxPro database for creating estimates and invoices. They needed to replace their outdated computer equipment by purchasing new computers with an updated Windows operating system.
The FoxPro database was critical to their operations; however it would not work on the new Windows platform. The system needed to be re-written on a contemporary database platform.
The Microsoft Access application developed by alligatortek is used for generating estimates, invoices and reports. The system was specifically designed to work very similar to the FoxPro system. Employees were able to use the new system immediately with minimal re-training.
