Entrypoint is a seasoned product with a 25-year history. Entrypoint 90, the popular DOS-based forerunner of Windows Entrypoint and Entrypoint i4, 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.
