Alison Balter at MS Access Solutions developed the application that helps us to properly service all of our members. This program handles billing, payments, tracking of jobs worked, available list, and other important data about our members. The system automates many tasks that were previously performed manually, allowing our employees to more cost-effectively use their time.

Microsoft unveiled plans December 2, 2017, for a major upgrade and new onstruction for its primary Silicon Valley campus in Mountain View, near Jose, CA. Microsoft states this large construction project which modernize the site plus improve the facility as a "green facility", with several water saving features.
"This project represents a significant investment in our more than 2,000 employees in the San Francisco Bay Area and our commitment to creating the best employee experience in the industry," - Kevin Scott, Microsoft’s chief technology officer.
Microsoft estimated it will take two years to build the revamped, 643,000-square-foot Mountain View complex, which should be ready to occupy in December 2019.
The company said the campus will be "our smartest, greenest office yet," with highly efficient water use for the site — located in California’s often drought-prone climate. "One hundred percent of the buildings’ non‑drinking water will come from rainfall or on-site recycled water," said Pauline Souza, a partner with WRNS Studio Architecture & Planning. "This will be a first in Silicon Valley."
Microsoft has emptied out the campus with the construction underway. "Employees will be working from our other office locations in Sunnyvale during construction," said Austin Stewart, a Microsoft spokesman. Tech companies in Silicon Valley are dangling enticements in front of recruits or current employees, such as offices with attractive surroundings, near mass transit, restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities.
Besides the expansions by Microsoft, tech companies such as Google, Apple, LinkedIn and Facebook have worked to create offices near their existing campuses or develop big outposts in Silicon Valley to expand their teams. "Almost all the big tech companies are saying they want to expand in Silicon Valley," Levy said. "It is a strong affirmation of Silicon Valley’s economic strength."

The Microsoft Team is announcing the general availability of Office 2019 for Windows and Mac. Office 2019 is the next on-premises version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Project, Visio, Access, and Publisher.
Office 365 ProPlus, the cloud-connected version of Office, delivers the most productive and most secure Office experience—with the lowest total cost of ownership for deployment and management. However, for customers who aren’t ready for the cloud, Office 2019 provides new features and updates to the on-premises apps for both users and IT professionals. Like Windows Long Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) releases, Office 2019 provides a set of valuable enhancements for customers who can’t be cloud-connected or receive regular updates.
The new enhancements in Office 2019 are a subset of a long list of features that have been added to Office 365 ProPlus over the last three years. Office 2019 is a one-time release and won’t receive future feature updates. However, we’ll continue to add new features to Office 365 ProPlus monthly including innovations in collaboration, artificial intelligence (AI), security, and more.
Office 2019 delivers features across apps to help users create amazing content in less time. In PowerPoint 2019, you can create cinematic presentations with new features like Morph and Zoom. And improved inking features across the apps in Windows—like the roaming pencil case, pressure sensitivity, and tilt effects—allow you to naturally create documents.
Office 2019 also includes new IT value for enhanced security and streamlined administration. We introduced Click-to-Run (C2R), a modern deployment technology, in Office 2013, and it’s now used to deploy and update Office across hundreds of millions of devices worldwide. With Office 2019, we’re moving the on-premises versions of Office to C2R to reduce costs and improve security. The advantages of C2R include predictable monthly security updates, up-to-date apps on installation, reduced network consumption through Windows 10 download optimization technology, and an easy upgrade path to Office 365 ProPlus. C2R offers the same enterprise-focused management capabilities as Microsoft Installer (MSI) based products and will also support an in-place upgrade when you move to Office 2019 from older MSI-based products.
