Editors' Review

Database management applications have come a long way since Symantec introduced Q&A. Lantica's Sesame Database Manager is perhaps the best-known Q&A follow-on, and latest versions still provide an exclusive Q&A translator. Sesame is a cross-platform-capable, client-server database application development and management suite with built-in word processing and publishing capabilities that businesses, organizations, and even individuals can use to manage large amounts of data and create useful applications. These applications include invoices and receipts, reports, e-commerce, inventories, and virtually any kind of form or record.

Sesame's latest versions boast an upgraded form-based interface that builds on the software's well-established functionality and ease of use. A new feature, customizable Menu Button Navigation, gives you quick access to your programs and data. A left-hand tree view makes it easy to access each database and create custom applications from it. Sesame saves developers a lot of time because they can use programming code instead of recording macros or using other out-of-date methods. Version 2 upgraded so many of Sesame's features and added so many new ones that it's not possible to adequately summarize them, but there's an excellent Help file and online assistance, including documentation, and even printed material with the retail box version.

Sesame Database Manager is free to try for 30 days and costs $79. It works in most versions of Windows, from 95 to Vista, as well as in Linux. It installs desktop icons without asking and has a rather elaborate uninstall process. It's the best at what it does, and it does a lot.

"Burnt by Sesame Developer"

October 07, 2011  |  By prston

 |  Version: Sesame Database Manager 2.5.2

Pros

NO Pros. Developer Lantica took my payment and failed to deliver the fully functional software.

Cons

Developer Lantica takes your money and does not provide any software in return

Summary

I ordered Sesame Database Manager. My credit card was charged. But I received no software from the vendor. No receipt. No invoice. No customer number (as required by Lantica's unusual method of delivering their software). No email confirming the order. No serial or license number. Nothing!

After completion of my order, I was given an Order Confirmation with the Order Number. But that Order Confirmation provides no means to acquire the software.

I have bought many software through Bits. No order ever turned out badly except for this one. I feel burnt by this vendor!

***** REVIEW REVISION -- 5 STAR UPGRADE DESERVED

The extraordinary issues associated with my Sesame order were real. But Lantica, the Sesame developer, did not deserve the blame placed on their doorstep.

Apparently, my Sesame order was unintentionally sabotaged by server errors attributable to the company that processed orders for Lantica. Thus, I was misled to believe that Lantica was at fault. And thus I inadvertently criticized the wrong entity.

Today, Lantica went to extraordinary pains to discover what went wrong and to set everything right. If Lantica's Sesame software is even half as exceptional as Lantica's customer service, then Sesame should be outstanding software.

The company that botched my Sesame order is no longer processing orders for Lantica. So, future buyers should not worry about hassles with their own orders.

In light of new facts, I apologize for my criticism of Lantica. Also, I thank Lantica for their honesty and exceptional customer support.
