Web Design, Development, and Hosting
Web applications allow users to control what information they want to see, or allow you to control what information you allow your users to access. They are often database driven, using Sql Server, MS Access, or MySql. Perfect for gathering data from any computer or handheld (e.g. Blackberry or iPhone). Easily manage all your customer data, and allow customers to view and update their records, securely. See our Solutions page for examples.
When most people think of web design, they think of the graphics, layout, and font choices used. These are important, but you also need compelling content, and to guide users to the products and services you offer. Users need a reason to choose your site over your competitors, and they need to find you via search engines. The sales and checkout process needs to be straightforward, convenient, secure, and easy. Our designers accomplish all these goals.
Or maybe your need is to simply make information available to your customer. Update your information quickly and easily on the desktop, then transfer it to your online database. We'll set up systems to allow you to see which information is requested the most, so you know what your customers are looking for.
Our Solutions page has examples of many sites we've created that address all these issues.
We have extensive database experience using Microsoft Access, MySql, and Microsoft SQL Server. If your database needs are limited to your internal network or internal users, MS Access allows lower costs and more features. Click here to view sample forms and reports.
Depending on your needs, we can develop .Net online applications using Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Access, desktop applications in MS Access, or online applications using MySql. Access all your data through a web browser, or we can combine both approaches, with Microsoft Access as the front end and Microsoft SQL Server or MySql as the back end. We create robust, user-friendly applications that allow easy data entry, easy search, and custom reports.
We offer a full-featured shopping experience with NO MONTHLY FEES. Some sites want to charge you $30 to $100 per month to list your products. Over 5 years, that can add up to a lot of money! We do customizations, including look and feel, feature setup, and optionally product setup.

Microsoft Office Automation
You've been using Excel spreadsheets to store your data, but you know you spend too much time rearranging the data to generate reports and find the information you need. Maybe it is time to store the data in a database for easy input and/or convenient reports that allow you to filter by date, customer, product, or any field you choose. We can put your data on your office network so anyone can use and edit it, or restrict access to only those people you give permission to see or edit it. Do people need to access the data when in the field or out of town? We can make the information available through the internet, in real-time. Call us to let us solve all your data problems.
Maybe all you really need is a spreadsheet to track what you do, but those formulas are more complicated than you thought, or you just don't know how to setup the graphs to see the information in a way you can really use it. Maybe you need a custom macro to automate frequent tasks. Sure, you could take an Excel class and read a few books, but your time is valuable. Let someone who has worked with spreadsheets for over 20 years do the work for you. No job is too small.
You have the data you want in a spreadsheet or database, but you really need it in a Microsoft Word document. It is much too time consuming to transfer the data, then reformat it every time. We can set up a convenient transfer that preserves the formatting and automates your work. We can also help you to use the Microsoft Word features you know you need, but haven't figured out how to get working.
