Why Access Gen?

At the core of Gen development is the encyclopedia. It is here that the models of your business are created and developed that are ultimately built into your deployed applications.
Access Gen unlocks the information in your encyclopedia by giving fast, direct access to the models that it stores. No more waiting for check-ins and check-outs to get the information you need. Its features have been specifically developed to satisfy the information needs and support the processes of all phases of a development project from analysis and design, development and testing, through to application deployment and ongoing maintenance.
