System Support and Renovations...

The extensive development experience held by our staff allow us to undertake both intricate updates and renovations of existing system as well as the preparation of complex custom database components, features, 3rd party product links and complete projects. Some of the renovations and customised items that we have tackled to date include:

  • Renovations of and add-ons to existing database systems.
  • Links to such products as MYOB, Microsoft® Word, Microsoft® Excel, Microsoft® Outlook, Dymo & other third party systems.
  • Complex graphical reporting.
  • Features that tie in with 3rd party products such as WIN2PDF.


Quite a number of clients find it difficult to clarify their needs because they cannot visualise the individual components of their system. They often need to interact with the screen(s) they will be entering data into, the application flow, and the format of the reported output.

Our prior education and ongoing experience in software development have reinforced our need to use prototypes wherever possible to help clarify client and user requirements. These prototypes provide not only a visual representation of the final system, but they also provide partially working models that allow users to put hand on keyboard and mouse so they can interact with the various components.
