The Database Bureau

We have over 25 years experience in providing custom designed databases for both office based systems and web sites, using Microsoft Access, SQL Server and MySQL. 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.

We also provide domain registration, web hosting, email management and database hosting.
