Here's how we can deliver Faster and at Lower Cost
Perhaps you would rather have your Access application professionally designed than build it yourself?  We've implemented Microsoft Access based solutions for many of the world's most successful companies. 
The Smart Method Advantage
Whatever you need in your Access application the chances are that we've done it before. 

We have a vast library of pre-written code to fulfil many common requirements such as mail/email merge, contact management, invoicing and call logging. 

Because we can use these modules as "building blocks" we can deliver in a fraction of the time and cost of developing everything from scratch.

Waterfall and agile development methodologies
We can offer a choice of development methodologies: Waterfall and Agile Development.

The Waterfall method is the traditional way of developing applications.  Everything is first specified in a Functional Specification and User Interface Specification.  Development only begins when the entire system has been specified in detail and signed off.  This has been our preferred methodology until quite recently.  More...

Agile Development is a relatively new idea.  We've recently had spectacular success with this methodology.

 In this method we spend a day brainstorming with business experts (not technical experts) and produce a draft database design during this session.  Alpha releases are sent to the same business experts, usually at the end of each development day, as features are added. 

Feedback is then acted on immediately with any suggested improvements incorporated into the following day's alpha release. 

Agile development is the fastest method of quickly getting the application you need up and running but requires commitment by business experts as the system is substantially defined by client feedback.
