Isn't MS Access 2000 out of support now? Risky to build a company or process for that many users on top of that?

May be better in the long term to re-write as a web-app and give people access to that (with an Access App sitting on top of it for back-office operations that are performed by a smaller number of people if needed). Obviously depends what the Access db does.
