of maintenance is the beauty of the system. In fact, we have two
administrative assistants on our staff that maintain our membership
database in Access, and simply with the push of three buttons they
update our web-based Supplier Finder while syncronizing both the
web-based SQL Server database and the Access database in the office.
This process ensures absolutely consistent records, in the office
and on the web, while creating dynamic web pages on demand.
members love the new service...and literally thousands of users
worldwide are finding it an invaluable tool for finding pump manufacturers
over the internet. In fact, we have been able to build a sponsorship
program around the Supplier Finder as a way of funding our overall
web development budget. Crescent has been a pleasure to work with
- and they have kept our costs down by using integrating more readily
available technology solutions. Crescent understands associations
and their unique needs."
