Efficient database management with Microsoft Access 2016
With MS Access 2016, which is a component of the Office package, you can create databases, forms or even large reports. Microsoft Access 2016 is supplied with a large number of templates from which you can select the one right for your purpose (such as contact databases, task management, problem tracking or project management). Alternatively you can set up an empty database in Microsoft Access 2016, which you can configure totally to your own requirements and customise according to your needs.
For example, never lose sight of extensive customer contact information, to which in Microsoft Access 2016 you can add photos, telephone numbers, email addresses and other data relating to business partners. Manage all information relevant to your daily routine intuitively, fast and clearly. You create your database program similar to the way you do an Excel table with all the data relevant to you, and add information from photos or PDF files with just a few mouse clicks.

If you rely on collaboration with colleagues it is very simple to create powerful Access web apps with Access 2016: complete database structures and all the important forms for adding or editing data are integrated into these apps in MS Access 2016, as well as editing commands familiar from the desktop software.
