Grand Metropolitan Lodge
"Stephen French was commissioned by Metropolitan Grand Lodge (London Freemasons) to rebuild a database from scratch that is used to administer the Honours and promotions system for 35,000 London members. Steve has been an absolute delight to work with, patiently and diligently working with us to modernise the system and develop its utility even further. The end result has generated significant savings in time and effort of our own staff. I recommend him unequivocally to anyone seeking specialist database services."
Captain David Swain, Metropolitan Grand Secretary
Onside Independent Advocacy
"Steve worked with us over the period of 12 months to design, install and maintain our database, including the migration of historic information. As a charity we have to report to a number of different funders, on many different outputs and this proved to be complicated in terms of structuring the database. Steve took time with key people in the organisation to find out what was needed and the UK Database Designresulting database was designed, as far as was practicable, around those needs. Everyone who met Steve found him to helpful and constructive to work with and very accessible when off-site."
Lesley McKay, Operations Manager

"Steve took a lot of trouble to discover our needs and requirements before producing an attractive web site for us. As the development progressed we found that some changes and amendments to the design and set up were necessary and he led this journey for us. Steve has an understanding of our organisation, which is a achievement in itself, and applies that knowledge when offering advice and support to us. There is a vast document base and news archive which Steve keeps in order, providing ease of access to our constituents. He is a pleasure to work with, responds positively and quickly to UK Database Design requests relating to the site and is always available to help with problems."

"Steve French undertook in a complete re-design of our client database. He visited us on site to look at our current system and, after listening carefully to our needs, came up with suggestions and solutions, producing a prototype. Having agreed the format, the data from our existing system was migrated over to the new database which is now a straightforward easy to use tool for all our workers who are able to draw out information as required. In addition with Steve’s collaboration we have been able to extend its use and versatility which further enhances our operational procedures. Steve was mindful of our budget constraints and provided estimates for each stage of the work.

Anne Hess, Office Manager
Steve French has proved to be a first class professional in both web design and web site maintenance. He was able, with only minimum direction, to revamp a number of old and legacy sites operating in a variety of versions of software into a first rate, easy to use, set of web sites that meet all the requirements (and more) that were placed on him. His approach is both confident and engaging and he has the ability to make even the most complicated processes and procedures easy to understand. It is difficult to state the difficulty of the task that was set him in both engaging with previous suppliers and site builders to be able to bring together the important essential information and files so as not to have to go to the additional expense of recreating them. His estimations of time and cost were always met and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any future company or organisation who are looking for a high level of service in database development combined with a high level of professional expertise.
