Application Development
Genesis builds incredibly powerful, yet low cost applications using Microsoft Access and SQL Server. Packaged applications are not designed with your specific business needs in mind. We build custom made applications from scratch using your specifications. They are designed from your existing forms and processes. Therefore, they are easy to learn, automated to your specific needs and easily modified and expanded, as you desire. Our custom built applications are not restricted to one area of your business. They provide an optimal integration of data for your accounting, marketing, operations, sales and customer support needs.

Application Takeovers
Many of our clients have asked us to takeover an existing database application. The application is generally useful but in need of some modifications or additions. The client does not have sufficient resources or expertise to revise the program on his own. Genesis programmers are experts in Access and SQL Server Development. They can easily analyze an application, diagnose problems, and make fixes and additions. We can get your program working, as it should quickly and inexpensively.

Troubleshooting
Perhaps all you need is a quick fix. Some part of your application is not working, as it should. You may have struggled endlessly trying to fix the problem, with no success. What seems insurmountable to you may be simple to us. Our programmers solve these types of problems day in and day out. We can usually fix your problem quickly and easily.

Database Web Integration
Microsoft Access is a powerful back end database for most Internet needs. Genesis can add database interactivity to your existing website. Fully available features can be designed to better serve your potential clients. Existing clients and employees can be given secure web access to the data that they need.

Database User Interface
SQL Server provides powerful back-end data structures. Genesis designs interfaces that are intuitive, automated, flexible and powerful. Data Recovery Genesis is often called upon to recover lost data. The existing Access Data has become corrupt. Most of the time we can either fix the corrupt file or recover the lost data through other means.

Accounting Systems Add-ons
Your Accounting system was designed primarily for financial accounting. It should serve you well in that area. However, it may not adequately address other areas of your business. It may have features and modules that promise expanded functionality, but these are rarely well suited to your company's specific needs. Accounting systems are databases. As such their data can be used by other database applications. Genesis develops add-on programs that utilize data from your accounting system to meet your other operational needs.

Migration from Excel to Access
Often, managers or other power users develop applications in Excel. Spreadsheets are fabulous tools for analyzing and manipulating small amounts of data. Their main advantage is that non-programmers can learn them sufficiently well to meet their needs. At some point, Excel spreadsheets become unwieldy to manage. They become large and cumbersome and hard to modify. Information is often saved in many unrelated files. At this point it may be worthwhile to migrate towards a database application. Databases provide many advantages over spreadsheets. All the data is related, so it can be presented in any type of report. Automation makes data entry easier and more fool proof. Data can easily be shared between programs. You can import it directly from your accounting system and merge it into word documents. The same data can be accessed and updated simultaneously by many users. Finally, migrating from Excel to Access tends to be easier and cheaper than developing a custom program from scratch.

Migration from Access to SQL Server
If you've developed a prototype application using MS Access, or have a decent working program in Access that simply requires better speed or improved user interface, we can upgrade your application to the more powerful SQL Server language.

Data Sharing
Data sharing is often overlooked by organizations running a variety of off the shelf applications. This results in tremendous amount of duplicate data entry. Microsoft Access is tremendously well suited toward integration with other applications. Genesis can take your Access data and create Word documents, emails or spreadsheets at the push of a button. Our programmers also have much experience creating data sharing functionality between Access and even the most obscure types of industry specific applications.
