Just getting a consensus for what the group feels would be better for tracking Inventory, help desk, and baseline configurations.
I am on the side of access. I like the customization and the freedom to change as needed. Where as FMP you need to purchase the newest version. Plus it's not the best when it comes to Front-end / Back-end. Not too mention the ODBC connection issues that you can have.
This is how I look at the problem. If the company is already paying a group to write programs using Access, MySQL, PHP, Apache, and SQL then why are we forking out thousands in purchasing software we could easily design and support. I am sure there is a business model that supports it but it seems rather wasteful.
So what are the Pros and Cons of each?
