Our services

“I’m not a database expert. David is, and has — on more than one occasion — proven to be exceptionally helpful, by being there to assist when so few others would. David is among a select group of people I would consider invaluable. A bit like a Stephen Fry of the IT world, but without the book deals and the TV shows.” (Wayne Smallman, Octane Interactive)

We help you by …

  • Integrating multiple systems and data sources
  • building easy to use and easy to understand dashboards
  • Providing you with reports and metrics that give you total visibility of your business
  • Upgrading and enhancing existing solutions

How we work

  • We believe “people do business with people” so where possible we will come and see you in person
  • We offer a no-cost, no-obligation, initial meeting to appraise and scope the requirement
  • Our frequent experience is that we are able to add considerably to the process of determining the best course of action
  • We have a strong commercial approach, and it is critical for us that a proposed solution meets the business case
  • We are flexible about the format that the project takes – we will try and fit with your needs within certain constraints
  • We are very collaborative, as that way we avoid “scope creep”, so we will need a time commitment from you

What you get

  • Total ownership of any and all software – we don’t hold our clients to ransom
  • The ability to change specifications “on the fly” (within reason!) as we know things become clearer once you start
  • Full terms that set out what we will provide and what we expect from you (see them here)
  • Full support and minor modifications at no additional cost for 60 days after implementation
  • Bug fixes for one year after implementation, at no additional cost if the bug is caused by our error or ommission

Why work with us

  • We have a strong operational, commercial background
  • We got into the technology as a means to an end – business is the driver, not the IT
  • We have over three decades of experience of a wide range of business situations
  • We believe that process, workflow, and management information are central to business operation
  • Our systems are built around you, and we are conscious that you won’t buy into them if you can’t use them easily
