Since 2000. See the About page for more information.
It is the development of a computer software application specifically designed to store and process your organisation's information/data.
There are 2 methods of acquiring a database, either you can purchase an off-the-shelf package or have a customised database developed to suit your needs.
It varies. Defining requirements will require more time if you have not already specified the system to us in advance. However, we have been able to build multi-user applications without having met with our clients in person. We have the ability to correspond via email, connecting remotely to your PC, and telephonically.
The main reason for developing a customised software application is to achieve something that an off-the-shelf package does not achieve. The application can be designed around your organisation's specific processes and requirements.
Before commencing development we can analyse your requirements and provide you with a detailed proposal. Sometimes we can also apply previously developed code which can dramatically reduce the project cost.
Requirement gathering is done before design starts. Depending on the requirements for your application it could take anything from days to months. We can give you a target project completion date. Depending on the complexities of the required system and integration with other systems within your organisation we can also break the project down into phases to ease implementation.
We use MS Access, Jet and Visual Basic for Applications language to build customised systems.
Access is powerful, cost-effective and development can be completed quickly. We deploy our applications on an Access Runtime so you don't have to purchase additional MS Access licensing.
If you have duplicate data spread across different files, it is often better to store the information in a database.
Yes. We analyse your existing database and give recommendations as to the changes required.
We will analyse your spreadsheets and develop a customised database which will be deployed on Access Runtime and then facilitate the transition from your spreadsheets into Access.
We can help you with import and/or export of data compatible with other software packages.
Yes. We design our databases using a separate back end (where data is stored) and front end (user interface). The back end is placed on the server and is accessed via the front ends on the user's PCs.
Because we use linked tables to the user interface, size is only limited to the amount of storage capacity that you have available.
