Our Own Cloud Database Solution

We have created our own database platform (imaginatively called TheDatabase :) that allows us to create fully operational database solutions in a few hours. It is absolutely packed with features and functions that we have developed over the past 7 years which can then be developed further with your feedback towards a final solution.

In most cases we can create between 90% and 10% of the solution quickly through configuration. The remaining part we then code to your exact requirements creating a unique customised solution to suit your business.

We are big believers in the KISS principle because so unwanted features are hidden from sight. And because we own it we can customise it, so you get exactly what you need!
