Database Design and Development

Whether you know it or not, every organisation, small, medium or large, requires a database.

Database design and database installations in Lancashire, Cumbria, Yorkshire.

Harness the power of your data

The collection, efficient processing and effective application of information in the operations of an organisation is vital to its success.

 

Even something as basic as an address list has to be managed correctly if it is to be employed with any level of usefulness. Bearing this in mind, anything that can improve the accuracy, reliability, security and access to your data, should be high on any organisations list of priorities.

 

Put simply, you will always need a database.

Organising your data

We are database design and development experts and have been working at improving our clients’ data systems for over twenty years.database design creation implementationWe are experts in designing and developing databases that have been helping organisations implement and enhance the accuracy, reliability, security and retrieval of their data.

Bespoke Requirements

Throughout our many years of database development and implementation, we have become fully aware that one size does not fit all.  It may be true that a readymade system will suit your requirements, but more often than not, a bespoke database system is required so that it can be designed to integrate with all the facets of your operation.

 

Our databases have been successfully developed and implemented for many clients, covering a wide range of applications.

 

Example applications of our databases are:

 

  • Sales Order Processing
  • Resource Booking Systems
  • Property Letting Management
  • Wills and Deeds Case Management
  • Stock Control
  • Purchase Order Processing
  • Customer Relation Management
  • Call Management
  • Volunteer Data Collection & Analysis
  • Dermatology Patient Tracking
  • Production Planning
  • Welfare Case Management
  • Property Sales and Viewings Management

 

Some of the areas and professions that we have designed our databases for:

 

  • Estate Agents
  • The NHS
  • Car Hire Services
  • Retail Outlets
  • Solicitors
  • Property Letting Agents
  • Third Sector Organisations
  • Fresh Produce Companies

 

We can say, without doubt, that we can create any system to suit your organisations uniqueness.  Design, input flow, report output, data exports, colours, data capture methods and navigation; it’s all down to you and your choice.  You tell us the functionality and appearance you would like and we will do the rest.

Database Platforms

We create database applications for most major platforms and operating systems using Microsoft Access, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and other technologies residing on Apache and IIS servers.

Data Security

If you require user level data security, for example, who has access to what and to what depth, we can integrate that functionality into any database development.  Added to this, we could also include a tracking function that would provide an audit trail of which user performed an operation and at what time.

Data Migration

There comes a stage when you discover that your current system is no longer capable or fit for purpose.  You don’t want to start from scratch or run parallel systems but you need to retain and use your current data.   This is where data migration is needed.

 

We will analyse your current system and extract and insert your old data into any new system; we will then validate and verify your new dataset.

Database Re-engineering and Repair

If you are happy with your current system but it doesn’t have quite the functionality you require, we can re-engineer it to meet your requirements.

 

Similarly, if your system is adequate but has developed or contains bugs, contact us for a free quote for a database repair.

Data Integration

If you have multiple data sources and databases, whatever the format and platform, we can link them for you.

Data Mining, Analysis and Reporting

We can extract your data, analyse it from different perspectives and then produce a summary of the information.  Done in a useful way, it will identify relationships contained within the data that will assist you in your strategic planning.
