Help4Access- a provider of world-class professional Microsoft Access software development, delivers custom built solution to extend Alamo Capital’s Online Bond Trading system for real time analytics
When Alamo Capital, a Walnut Creek based broker dealer specializing in tax-free investing, wanted a real time analytics system to maximize investment strategies they turned to their trusted provider of custom software applications, Help4Access, to build a Microsoft Access 2010 based system to extend their Bond On-line Trading System (BOLTS).
The system needed to integrate customer and product information in order to perform “what if” investment scenarios to maximize customer value and profitability for the firm.
According to Sasha Froyland, Help4Access Founder and CEO, “Microsoft Access is the perfect tool to extend Enterprise Systems such as BOLTS. Microsoft Access is the fastest prototyping tool in the world and delivers a working product in a fraction of the time required to develop an enterprise level solution.”
Help4Access’s Engineering team hit the ground running and quickly turned Alamo’s high-level business requirements, requiring hundreds of programming hours, into high quality, bug free, application code in much less time than it would have taken to develop similar functionality within the BOLTS system.
Sasha goes on to explain, “We leveraged all our core competencies in our effort to complete this high value project for Alamo. Our business analysts and Engineering team worked closely with Alamo to deliver a rock solid database application tightly integrated with their BOLTS system.“
While many people think of MS Access as a standalone tool, it opens up a realm of possibilities when used to extend existing Enterprise Systems including:
• Rapid prototyping of “what if” scenarios with minimal investment
• Faster time to market for add-on features and services
• Reduce back office time by automating manual processes
• Better resource utilization of Enterprise Systems engineers
Extracting customer and product data directly from Alamo’s BOLTS system, the Help4Access team developed an Access database to enable investment prototyping and client reporting metrics. The custom application developed by Help4Access, reduced back office time and provided the 360-degree portfolio view that Alamo needed to optimize customer service and maximize investment returns.
Sasha sums it up by saying “Our use of MS Access to extend Alamo’s BOLTS system illustrates the innovative ways that MS Access can be applied to solve business critical requirements for organizations of any size. Custom software solutions developed by Help4Access on the Microsoft Access platform have the perfect balance of performance, low cost and low risk that all come together to deliver a very high rate of return.”
