Real World Access (4)

One of a series of articles about where Microsoft Office Access applications have found a real-world niche.

Peter Doering's shoes

I wrote a sales force automation tool for the apparel/footwear industry, i.e. with style/color/size handling. Currently it is running in about 30 countries and 5 languages on all continents.

It's used by sales reps for offline recording of sales orders. Later on they sync with a console application that also handles the communication with the main ERP systems (Navision / SAP).

The client and console applications are Access based (A02/A03), while backend databases are either Access (JET) or SQL Server 2000.

For most customers it's the only tool they use for order capturing, so you can call it an Access based key application.

The title/picture combination here suggests to me that Peter has, um, eclectic taste in footwear. Really, Peter, aren't those shoes just a tad impractical? :)
