When I get an inquiry for JobsPlus support, the most common problem users put up with is that the system crashes many times in the day which possibly could mean poor application design and/or poor relational database design.
JobsPlus uses a Microsoft Access Database that has a few disadvantages or limitations that are well known amongst the database development professionals.
Large Database Sizes
if JobsPlus has been running for many years its highly likely the database has reached a certain size were its performing poorly. Common signs are the time it takes to run reports, query historic information and loading of screens and lastly, the system crashes cause it cannot execute the information it needs to retrieve.
In addition to those common issues around poor performance is the limited options to best utilize the system's performance, Access relational database is contained in a single file which poses problems to file locking when multiple users try and access the same records or reports are being run.
