Our team has worked with the Active Query Builder components since the middle of 2014.

By using Active Query Builder we have managed to upgrade our applications to the point where we can enable users with very little to no knowledge of SQL to access their databases and retrieve accurate summaries of their data. The component itself is flexible, easy to use, user friendly and consistently improved upon. Any issues that might occur are dealt with by a support team that sets the benchmark for customer service and professionalism.

In short, a superb product developed and supported by a superb team.”
