Top Ten Reasons You Need Total Visual SourceBook

Unable to convince your manager or purchasing department that Total Visual SourceBook should be a "must-have" purchase? We have made it easy for you by giving you a list of compelling reasons why Total Visual SourceBook should be your development partner.

  1. Use just one module or class and the product pays for itself
    How long does it take you to design, develop, test, and document a module or class? Assume 2-3 hours and multiply that by the hourly cost for knowledgeable developers--Total Visual SourceBook pays for itself even if you only ever use one class or module!
  2. Total Visual SourceBook reduces costs for developers
    Because developing, testing, and documenting code is time-consuming and prone to errors, having a code library with over 125,000 lines of professional code will save your developers time.
  3. Total Visual SourceBook reduces costs for teams
    Designed as a multi-user ready code repository, Total Visual SourceBook can manage code for your entire team. Track code by keywords, full-text searches, creation and modification dates, and author.
  4. Using Total Visual SourceBook is easy
    Simply start Total Visual SourceBook from VB6 or Access/Office/VBA as an add-in an you're ready to go. Search for code, export code to your editor, or add your own code. With full online context-sensitive help and a clean design, the Total Visual SourceBook program is easy to learn and use.
  5. Total Visual SourceBook contains more code than any other commercial VBA library/repository product
    With 227+ modules, 3,600+ procedures and properties, 125,000+ lines of code in 55 categories, you'll find code coverage for every major area of application development from ADO to XML.
  6. Total Visual SourceBook supports collaboration in connected and disconnected development environments
    Total Visual SourceBook stores your code in an Access database. That database can be stored on your network and shared with your other developers. You can also upsize the database to SQL Server which can be hosted locally or on SQL Azure.

    Besides being fully multi-user, Total Visual SourceBook includes our Source Code Exchange (SCE) technology. You can package any amount of your code, along with notes and examples, into a compact file that you can share with other Total Visual SourceBook users. SCE technology takes care of conflicts and versioning, giving you complete control over your disconnected team members.
