Some people dismiss Alpha Four
simply because Alpha Four is a "DOS software". It should be
pointed out that today many largest corporations continue to use DOS-based
programs to run mission-critical tasks, for example, payroll,
account receivable, account payable, and inventory control.
Alpha Four, especially its latest version (version 8), is a
very user-friendly and capable software for building simple database
systems. We estimate that most of the applications written with Alpha
Four use less than 10% of
what Alpha Four is capable of. We have been supporting corporations that continue
to use Alpha Four. These clients include an insurance company that uses
Alpha Four to store customer and claim information, a chemical company that uses Alpha Four to
generate invoices everyday, and a major university on the east coast that
uses Alpha Four to manage security across three campuses and generate all
sorts of accident and crime reports.
The latest version of Alpha Four runs
efficiently under Windows 2000 and Windows XP. We provide
strategies for our clients to use Windows 7 and Windows 8 computers to run Alpha Four.
