What is Legacy Software and the Old Business Software Model?
In a nutshell, Legacy Software is old software. Legacy Software is often described as being slow, inefficient, unstable, and notoriously user unfriendly. It also severely lacks features (scalability, speed, extendibility, etc.) required in today's world.
Businesses who use Legacy Software often have no choice but to confine to the Old Business Software Model. This model sometimes forces businesses to "hodge podge" multiple outdated (or misused) software programs together to perform core business operations -- this is a recipe for disaster.
Is Microsoft Excel considered Legacy Software?
Microsoft Excel is a powerful spreadsheet tool created in 1985. Although Excel can be very useful in certain situations, it should not be used as "the sole means" of running a business and/or should not be used as the primary storage of important data.
New businesses often use Excel as a starting point. So, if you have been using Excel and are ready to customize your own software, Contact Us today!

Does modernizing Legacy Software always mean completely replacing existing software?
No. Not always. Essentially, you have 3 choices: Rewrite, Replace, or Reuse.
