Why It's Time to Upgrade from Microsoft Access to a Custom Application

By Pixis Team on Oct/27/2017

Often a company realizes they need something more than Excel to track information and records so they use Microsoft Access. Access is a database management system with a graphical user interface and software development tools; we often find they are poorly designed which makes them only marginally better than Excel since the databases are set up in a similar manner.

Sometimes a company may have someone on staff who has a working knowledge of Access, but it is often poorly designed, and used inefficiently since the employee may not know how to properly setup a database. We’ve compiled a list of issues that come with using Microsoft Access (due to its outdated format) and how an upgrade to a custom application using a database, such as Microsoft SQL Server, can solve these issues.

Should You Hire an IT Employee or IT Company for Your Business' Software Development?

By Pixis Team on Sep/06/2017

A variety of companies seek outside help for everything from manufacturing to information technology support. In general terms, this is called outsourcing. However, outsourcing doesn’t necessarily mean sending your work outside of the country - it just means sending your work to someone who is not part of your internal resources. In the modern business landscape, outsourcing is especially common with technical applications. Why is this the case?

Simply put, companies can’t do everything. Growing and established companies alike do not have the capital to hire employees that can help with every facet of their operations. Furthermore, companies generally only need help with a specific project or issue at any given time - something that does not require a full-time employee to resolve.

In these cases, organizations can look to hire outside help through outsourcing. This way, they can receive the expert help they need without wasting time and money hiring and retaining new employees.
