Central to the work we do is usually an Access database. As database developers, we use Microsoft Visual Basic to program software applications using Access.
Access Database Design
We can design for you a new Access database, design new Access reports, make improvements to existing access databases' forms, upgrade the data to a SQL Server or to MySQL, recover an ailing Access database. We can design from scratch, or we can pull together all your data - from spreadsheets and other formats - into a strong, relational database.
Custom Database Development
A good Access database should describe your company's activity and provide you with the reports you need, Excel spreadsheet exports and functionality such as email. We work closely with our clients in person, by phone and by email, and build your application by listening and understanding your needs.
We have worked with companies to design databases for social care, museums, animal welfare, recycling, telecommunications, investment, insurance and many more. We have worked with individuals for projects such as wedding management abroad, recipes and fine art.
Office Based and Web Software
You might require us to design an application for a standalone computer or laptop, a small network, a wide area network or a web based system. We have experience in designing in these environments and combinations of them.
We develop many software solutions using Microsoft Access databases, many of which link to other applications such as Excel and Word. This might be on a single computer, on a network or provide the data for a web site. Lead developer Steve French has had 25 years experience in all these technologies.
For our web design of the site for Jazz Services and the huge Access database that underpinned it, we won the All-Party Parliamentary Jazz Committee Award for Best Web Site at a ceremony at the House of Commons.
We also work with Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL for larger applications, networks and the internet. We can also implement CMS systems using Joomla or Wordpress.
Our web applications draw on over 20 years web design experience, using HTML, CSS, ASP and Java technologies. We can also provide domain names, web and email hosting.
