See what Nick Pasquale, Logistics Administrator, on 07/08/2020, writes:

I’m working logistics for a motor manufacturing company and we needed to build a database for our inventory. We use Excel but needed more functionality and customization. I saw many training courses online for Access, and Fast Track Computer Solutions was the right fit for our needs because they provide one-on-one in-person training – something we need for our specific requirements.

I’ve now completed the course and am taking away with me my own customized database! I couldn’t be happier with the results and am definitely going forward with Access – no more messy Excel spreadsheets for me!

I would recommend Fast Track Computer Solutions to others who want a personalized experience with Access.

See what Christine Greenslade, Administrative Assistant, Nash Bros (WA) Pty Ltd, on 21/04/2020, writes:

“Upon looking for hours for training within Microsoft Office Access, the only course that I found that would benefit my workplace and myself was that of Fast Track Computer Solutions.

Ivor and Daniel have a specialised program for the 2 sessions that you are able to work on your business Access program, to get to know how to use it correctly and any changes you can make.

Ivor and Daniel also allow for you to create a new program specifically designed for your business, they work with you to make it how you want it to run and help with you to get it up and running correctly.

Fast Track Computer Solutions was the only business I found to be helpful in Access training, I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”

Have you ever been in a computer training class where you felt that there was not enough time to ask questions during the group training session, or that your question might be irrelevant to the rest of the trainees?

With our Access 1-on-1 or your company’s group there is no such thing as a silly question and we understand that not everyone learns the same way.

Our tailored session enable us to customise our training techniques and pace and concentrate on material that is relevant to you.

Let us show you are much more can be done, over Excel.

So why not learn MS Access with Ivor and his team? Ivor has over 50 years expertise as a Business and Industry professional covering accounting, administration, operations, planning, HR, estimating, job costing, document control, spreadsheet and database development, etc. Our skilled programmers are all based in Australia. We do not out-source programming work to overseas companies.

We are now probably the oldest MS Access company providing support, training, and business database application developers, in Australia!

To: Ivor Kosowitz (Perth Software)

“Ivor has provided an invaluable service in teaching me how to set-up and use an Access database to handle large volumes of complex information, including digital image files. I am a busy pathologist and cannot learn these tasks without expert help. Ivor employs experienced IT professionals who know their area back-to-front and can teach it to novices such as myself, with a minimum of anxiety and stress. Ivor’s service continues through project development from conception to application, with invaluable trouble-shooting advice.

I had previously relied on Excel for my research projects, but found that it quickly became over-whelmed with large inter-related data-sets, making it difficult to retrieve and analyze information. Access is a far superior data-base program, but requires some careful tuition before it can be used properly. Perth Software has the experts to teach even the most non-IT savvy client how to do this

I thoroughly recommend Ivor’s service for anyone needing reliable and friendly help in the areas of database management and related IT applications.”

Access training courses

I came to Fast Track knowing nothing about MS Access and left with a fully functioning database and a wealth of knowledge. There is no compromise for one-on-one training. Your trainer is very knowledgeable and and patient. He was able to easily adapt his programme to suit my requirements. I would certainly recommend Fast Track for personalised database training.


Risk Executive, Major Bank

The Access Database course that I recently attended at Fast Track Computer Solutions was very valuable and informative. It helped me to understand the concepts easier as the training was split over two units on different days. One-on-One training was really beneficial for me as it concentrated on areas relating to my work. Thank you very much for such an excellent learning experience and keep up the good work.

The Pitfalls of Keeping Data in Excel

Excel Spreadsheets are extremely useful and provide infinite flexibility. When used properly, they can be an effective way to collect and analyse business data relating to customers, finance, staff etc.

However as a business grows, spreadsheets become complex and business owners rely heavily on the results and analysis of the data being accurate. Using Excel spreadsheets comes at a cost to many businesses that fall into the following traps.

The spreadsheet is used by many people in the organisation. They are copied, modified enhanced and grow in complexity. But who knows which one is the correct set of data?

There only needs to be one incorrect formula or missing formula to compromise the integrity of the spreadsheet. This can lead to disaster for a company who relies on this information to make important decisions.

When new staff start managing existing spreadsheets their level of understanding and skill in Excel does not always match the creator, again this leads to costly errors.

The same data is collected in multiple spreadsheets within the company, crazy I know! How much productive time is being wasted in duplicating the same process.

It is a good idea to assess how, where and why data is stored in your business. In many cases we find that productivity, accuracy and reporting can be greatly improved by refining the work flow and importing excel spreadsheets into a Microsoft Access database.

MS Access preserves the value of the data, produces consistent reports and maintains a structure in the input and manipulation of the data. This results in less data entry errors, improved version control and an easier straight forward interface – suitable for users of all skill levels. For the guru excel users status the data can easily be exported and analysed using Excel, so it’s a win-win.

When you upgrade from Excel to Access it allows the database to expand with your business, this means not having to purchase a totally new database once you have outgrown the old one saving both time and money.
