Microsoft Access Rewrite
Transform your Legacy application
Take you business to the next level and do away with the Access runtime, version conflicts, installs and updates!
We know that you've poured your heart into your application. It's your baby and you've probably worked on it for years, if not decades. It's a difficult choice to make, but these days your clients and customers expect more than Access can deliver. They want to use it on multiple devices and platforms. They want support for tablets and phones. They want a cleaner, modern interface with less clutter. Moving to the web can give you and your customers all this and more.
Want to know how this might look? Check out our migration demo at students.sagekey.net. We took a stock demonstration database that ships with Microsoft Access and migrated it partially to the web so you could get a real world feel for what the migration process looks like.
Do you have users running multiple versions of Access? Versions not playing well together? Rewrite to a web application; problem solved!
The application is analyzed for the number of forms, tables, queries and reports and a rough estimate of the number of hours is generated. This is a guideline only and can be adjusted by combining forms and features as well as including the client in such things as testing , trimming old code and writing new SQL and reports.
- As much of the pre-existing code and SQL as possible is used to cut down on development time
- A mock up is done with some minimal data display to allow you to address and tune any issues
- Release to production can be done in phases, allowing you to get to market faster
Twelve years ago I stumbled upon a small vendor on the web. Today we no longer have a vendor, but a strategic partner in all of our development efforts. With projects ranging from simple installation scripts to industry wide web-based applications, SageKey has exceeded our expectations in every instance. Working with SageKey is not something that can be described; it is something that must be experienced.

Some of our projects
DermCoder was an access application used by Dermatology offices to assist with medical billing codes. In August of 2011 the process was begun to convert it from an Access Runtime desktop application to an SQL based web application. The initial version was released in January 2012. Since then it has been modified and expanded many times with additional features, upgrades and entire new product lines that would not have happened in a non-web based format.
DermCoder now has over 1,600 active user subscriptions.
In December of 2004 the Yellow Pages Publishers Association (Now the Local Search Association) approached us with an ambitious project to convert their existing legacy Access Runtime desktop application to a web based application. The IRIS tool was used in offices throughout North America to aide in the pricing and placement of Yellow Pages advertising in local, national and international campaigns. This was an especially onerous task as new data CDs for the existing application were being shipped to hundreds of offices 4 times every month.
The initial release of the web application was done in July of 2005. There have been four major upgrades and dozens of features and enhancements added since. IRIS now offers over 40 GB of historical pricing and Yellow Pages directory data in addition to over 4.4 million downloadable Yellow Pages files. While its user base is in decline, at its peak it boasted over 3,000 active users.
The data updates are still done four times a month, but is now done in 15 minutes with a single import.
Following the success of IRIS, the Yellow Pages Publishers Association (Now the Local Search Association) decided to move a critical internal tool to the web. Known as CO-OP, it was used internally to the company with the purpose of tracking and managing data on CO-OP advertising plans, where a larger corporation would pay a percentage of a local companies Yellow Pages ad cost in exchange for using an approved image or logo.
By converting the tool to an online format, they were able to give sales people direct access to the data, rather than having them submit requests for information, which would have to be acted on by staff.
CO-OP Online now manages data for 2200 CO-OP advertising plans and has 5000 users.
