About Alpha Software
The reason we use Alpha Software for 98% of our clients is that it just works and application is fast. The more experience we get in Alpha means we can even exceed what we did in the past. That is all good for our clients and helps us as well.
Alpha as we buy it is around $2600.00(last quote) and there are other platforms out there that are much less and quite a few that are more. You can use Alpha to create your own apps, but at some point in time you may need a professional needed to repair what you did or did not know how to do.. Most new developers that try it, find they should have saved their $2600.00.
One needs an understanding of database, table, file structure, images, scripting, functions and a lot more just as a beginning to Alpha where a top developer locks all that together and uses xbasic extensivley.
