Charity database reaches beta test phase

We've been working at Shrewsbury-based charity The Woodford Foundation to develop a web-based database application to store and analyse data relating to the impact of the fantastic work they do in Africa (Malawi in particular).

After a couple of site visits, the database is now taking shape and the productivity that Alpha Five v10 delivers has made the process of building the system very enjoyable and very productive.  As official beta testers for Alpha Five v11 we were thinking of deploying on this release in order to make use of the new calendar and Google Map support, but the stability of v10 has encouraged us to stay with the current version.

Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL Server remain our core development platforms but for web-based systems Alpha Five is proving to be a very capable addition to the stable.
