This software requires skill

As our business grew we needed a more robust shop control system. The package we settled on employed Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Enterprise. We haven't encountered a lick of issues when we started using it, and as our database has grown in size (now standing at about 10 GB) there has been almost no performance drop. It's truly amazing.You really need someone with technical and/or database skills to properly maintain and protect your SQL database. If you don't have that you may struggle more than necessary in getting this setup and keeping it working properly.

Test complete system

You can protype and test a complete system using SQL Express (free) and Visual Studio Code (free) and when you are ready, just upload your tables to SQL Server and go. It's awesome. I've been a user of Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Enterprise for years, and they simply keep improving the product with each release. I've yet to come across something it wouldn't handle - and handle well. It DOES require some serious horsepower. The more memory and CPU's you throw at it, the better the performance. I wish it did a little better job at lower memory/CPU's.
