We help clients get more from existing and new databases.
We specialise in developing custom databases. Our aim, despite working with often complex data sets, is to keep it simple for database users. We develop and support MS Access, SQL and cloud databases, as well as managing third party database and system API integrations, as well as
mobile app development.
Frequently Asked Questions
We offer a number of options to cover everything from one-off jobs through to long term support contracts. We can either work by the hour or by fixed price for project work. Prices vary depending on how big the job is and whether it is onsite or we can work from our office.
Please contact us us for more details.
For new databases we normally give you a fixed price quote for producing a functional specification and a ballpark estimate for the whole project. Once we have done the analysis and design work we give you a completed functional specification with a fixed quote to complete the project. This allows you to see exactly what you will get and mitigate the risks of the project.
For fixes or changes to an existing database system we work on an hourly basis and provided regular reports on progress made and issues encountered. The hourly rate depends on the level of commitment: the more hours you commit to, the lower the hourly rate. Please contact us for more details.
During the normal business day (9am to 5pm) there is almost always someone in the office to take your call.
For emails we normally respond within 2 hours and offer guaranteed response rates for clients on a support contract.
For clients on a support contract the minimum is 15 minutes. For new clients our minimum is 4 hours.
