Does your company realize the benefits of using Microsoft Access? Whether you’re a corporate trainer, or a computer instructor who works with business professionals, it’s important to understand the ways Microsoft Access can eliminate errors from your business’ and streamline the data entry process.
Many companies rely on Microsoft Excel to keep track of customers, orders and more. While this is an excellent choice for smaller projects, Access is much more efficient for large, multi-spreadsheet projects and for analyzing related data. Here are some of the benefits of using Microsoft Access.
Form Connections. With Access, users can form relationships between selected data such as all of the sales reps for a particular company, or the abbreviated and long versions of company names. This way, your reports are much more accurate since the program is able to “recognize” similar data and make the appropriate connections.
Eliminate Duplications and Inconsistencies. Maybe one admin types in Robert Williams Construction and another types R.W. Construction. Excel has no way to understand these entities are the same. Using Access, you can eliminate the common duplications, transpositions, and inconsistencies, that produce erroneous large, data-based reporting.
Shared Productivity. Another bonus of using Microsoft Access is that multiple users have access to the same information. Rather than depending on find and replace functions, if you change information in once place, that change will transfer across users and spreadsheets.
