Data-based training and database design. With a human face.

We make data personal. Whether that's through a database that really does what you need, or a course that's intelligent, informative and actually enjoyable.

"We were so happy with the result and the service we received with the first database that we asked them to build a second!" 

Imperial College London

Here's what we do...

Two services - training and development - linked by a common theme: making your data work for you.

We provide training on all things data

We are really passionate about training. It's our belief that if you book a course, the real cost isn't the money, it's the time. You're taking a day out of your work - a day you'll never get back - and it's our responsibility to make that day valuable.


So, we don't do fixed courses on fixed dates. You tell us what you need to achieve and when you want to do it, and we'll put together a day to make that happen. Whether it's a four-day in-depth course for 3 people, or 20 people split over two sessions in a single day. 


Our focus is on all things data - Excel, SQL, Access, VBA and database design, but whatever you need, we'd love to help.

I attended an advanced excel training course organised by my company. Andrew is the best trainer I have ever experienced; he is so engaging, able to understand and tailor requirements as needed and has a way of explaining things that makes something potentially complicated seem achievable. They have a wide repertoire and we shall definitely be asking for future training on other projects. Prices are very competitive too and actually exceptional value for money when considering the quality of service and volume of knowledge that they have.

We build databases for clients large and small

We don't just train people - we do the work too. 

We work with clients to create bespoke databases that meet the needs of their organisation and their unique processes. 


We've worked with clients on dozens of projects, from monitoring agricultural land usage in Tibet (yes, really) to tracking the marketing spend on the latest single released by the band that the Beatles could have been - Jedward (yes, also really).


And whether it's for a client the size of Marks and Spencer or a local independent forensic laboratory, our questions remain the same:

  • How can we make your data really work for you?
  • How can we make your life easier?
  • How can we give you what you really need?

The IT Service developed us a database which quite literally revolutionised the way we worked.

From being heavily paper-based, we were able to use our database to electronically send invoices to clients, orders to manufacturers and newsflashes to our staff.

Not only did they display the technical expertise that reassured us that they could do the job well, but more importantly, they were brilliant at communicating, and became a really valued part of our team.

What's more - we can combine the two, to produce a service that's right for you

Perhaps you've already got a database, but the person who built it is no longer available to update it. Or perhaps your database no longer quite fits the bill, has become unstable or just really slow?


We can do whatever you need to help out. 


We will charge for the time we spend, working in your office or remotely, providing ongoing maintenance or a complete overhaul. We can tweak one screen or rebuild the whole thing.


And better yet, we can teach you to do this too. Drawing on our years of training experience, we can work with you so that you gain the knowledge to understand exactly how your database works, and can take over maintaining your own database in due course - if that's what you want.

  • A one-off job or a regular service contract
  • Fix crashes, problems and error messages
  • Make your database run faster
  • Build a complete database from scratch
  • Update the functionality of an existing database
  • Migrate your data to the cloud
  • Teach you how to create new screens or queries
  • Create tools to export data your to Excel or to PDF
  • Provide free advice and guidance


Excellent and highly recommended.

The trainer was exceptional – providing a comprehensive and engaging overview of the GDPR tenets – the consistent compliment was simple surprise that data protection could be made so interesting…


The key messages both in terms of the concepts and the implications were delivered with a refreshing perspective and context.


Excellent and highly recommended.

Professional and expert...

The feedback from staff who have attended your courses has been consistently excellent across the board.

We also appreciate your professional and expert advice when discussing and creating solutions. Thank you for working with us so positively and we are looking forward to you working with us to deliver a range of further courses this year and beyond.

Always listened... never baffled us with technology!

The IT Service provided exactly what we wanted and have been able to add functionality whenever needed. They've always listened to our requirements and always been able to implement them - never baffling us with technology. They provide a personal service and they are always professional and reliable (appointments and timeframes have always been met!). I would definitely recommend this professional company!
