Entrypoint is a seasoned product with a decades-long history. Entrypoint 90, the popular DOS-based forerunner of Windows Entrypoint, was developed by DATALEX and released in 1991. The first version for Windows was released in 1994.
Phoenix Software acquired DATALEX in 1996; three years later Phoenix released a 32-bit Windows version of Entrypoint. Entrypoint was enhanced to support SQL in 2004 and remote data entry in 2006. The 2007 release implemented a client-server design that communicates over TCP/IP and stores data in a relational database. 2012 saw the release of a fourth-generation web-based version.
