well-designed relational data tables are at the root of a well functioning databaseWe Specialise in Bespoke Database Design using Access SQL Server  MySQL

We have over 25 years experience in providing custom designed databases for both office based systems and web sites. Off the shelf software is suited to straightforward customer management systems and the like, whereas we pride ourselves in tailoring our designs to suit our clients. Our founder Steve French will be happy to talk you through the database design you need, and how you want to use it: you may want a standalone application on a desktop computer, a database for a small or medium network, a database which is accessed on a web site or a web site that uses your database for its data.  We offer services in the following areas:

Typically, we will discuss requirements with you and produce a project document.  Usually, there will need to be data migration from other sources (such as Excel, text and CSVs) which we will convert into data tables: you may even have an existing database that requires a complete overhaul.  The data might be stored locally or in the cloud on a MySQL Server or Microsoft SQL Server.  We would then build a “front end” you can use to access this data via data entry forms, and reports you can print.  Often the front end is an Access application which you can distribute to your users: their login will automatically install the latest version of the front end software.  The design phases of testing, feedback and modifications would then result in a live version, following which we are available to provide support and updates.

(The Database Bureau) has worked with us over the last 6 months to design, install and maintain our database, including the migration of historic information. They took time with key people in order to understand our requirements, giving advice where he felt necessary, and explained the development in terminology we could understand. Our system was a very complex one, but they confidently undertook the project in a professional manner and kept us up to date at regular intervals with progress. We all found them to be helpful and pro-active, and always at the end of the phone if we had any questions…

Your business is like no other and requires its own, customised solution to your needs, with a data structure and application specific to your company.  You need a database which allows you to be able to keep on top of your data and produce the outputs you need.  That’s why we believe that custom-built, bespoke software that puts you first will better serve you than commercial products which try to get you to suit their system.
