Over the years, we’ve built databases for organisations from Natural England to the Royal Marsden Hospital, from media companies to accountants, from government bodies to street cleaning teams.

No matter how big or small the database, our approach and our ethic remains the same.

It’s all about you.

Building trust as well as a database

We know that IT projects have a reputation for being painful. From geeks who live in basements and speak computer but not English, to projects run way over budget and way behind schedule – we all know the stereotypes. And like many clichés, there can be an element of truth.

That’s why we’re all about communication.

We can’t build a database that will really work for you unless we know how you already work, so that’s where we start. We begin by getting to know you, your company and your work. We take all the time that’s needed to immerse ourselves in what you’re doing, learning about not only what you, but how and why you do it.

Not only does this mean you get a database that will really work for you, but it also means that by the time you get to give the green light to the project, and we actually start writing code, you already know us. You know what we’re like, and you’ll have a good idea of whether we’ll be a good fit.

This is the initial guide we send new clients to help you to think about what you need from your database. Take a look now – it may help you to clarify for yourself exactly what you expect your new database to do for you.

Alternatively, just give us a call on 020 3397 1333 and we can have a chat about what you need, and whether we can help. Remember, our initial consultation (which we’re more than happy to do face to face) is always free, and we promise no hard sell.[/fusion_title][fusion_builder_row_inner][fusion_builder_column_inner type=”1_3″ layout=”1_3″ spacing=”” center_content=”no” hover_type=”none” link=”” min_height=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_position=”left top” background_repeat=”no-repeat” border_size=”0″ border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” dimension_margin=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=”” last=”no” border_position=”all”][fusion_button link=”/development/process/” title=”Database design process” target=”_self” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” color=”custom” button_gradient_top_color=”#e5be49″ button_gradient_bottom_color=”#f2701f” button_gradient_top_color_hover=”rgba(229,229,229,0.89)” button_gradient_bottom_color_hover=”#b5b5b5″ stretch=”yes” icon_position=”left” icon_divider=”no” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″]See our database design process[/fusion_button][/fusion_builder_column_inner][fusion_builder_column_inner type=”1_3″ layout=”1_3″ spacing=”” center_content=”no” hover_type=”none” link=”” min_height=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_position=”left top” background_repeat=”no-repeat” border_size=”0″ border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” dimension_margin=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=”” last=”no” border_position=”all” element_content=””][/fusion_builder_column_inner][fusion_builder_column_inner type=”1_3″ layout=”1_3″ spacing=”” center_content=”no” hover_type=”none” link=”” min_height=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_position=”left top” background_repeat=”no-repeat” border_size=”0″ border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” dimension_margin=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=”” last=”no” border_position=”all”][fusion_button link=”/development/samples/” title=”Database design examples” target=”_self” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” color=”default” stretch=”yes” icon_position=”left” icon_divider=”no” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″]Explore examples of our databases[/fusion_button][/fusion_builder_column_inner][/fusion_builder_row_inner][fusion_modal name=”_helptobuild” title=”I need help to build a database” size=”large” border_color=”#f37021″ show_footer=”yes”]

If you need to build a database for your organisation, but you’re not sure how to go about it, we can help.

For some organisations, it may make sense for your new database to be built in-house. That way, you know you’ll get what you want, and you won’t have to pay an outside organisation every time you want to make a change. It can also be a really good investment to bring database design skills into your organisation.

But what if you don’t have anyone with the skills to do that just yet? Or maybe you’ve built databases in the past, but that’s a long time ago now, and those skills have got rusty?

Because we’re qualified IT trainers, we’re used to explaining complex topics clearly, so we give you a sound grasp of the fundamentals. And because we also spend our lives building databases, we’ve got the technical expertise to back it up.

We’ll provide a blend of training and assistance exactly tailored to your needs – we’ll help as much or as little as you want. Most commonly, we’ll give plenty of help at the critical design stage to ensure that your foundations are solid, then come in from time to time to provide guidance and overcome hurdles you may have hit.

But as always, the way we work will be driven by your needs, not ours. Just tell us how we can help.

[/fusion_modal][fusion_modal name=”_buildforme” title=”I need someone to build a database for me” size=”large” border_color=”#f37021″ show_footer=”yes”]If you know you need a database, but don’t have the time, skills or staff to build it yourself, we can help.

And although we’re more than happy to build it from start to finish for you, we’ll absolutely make sure that you’re involved at every step of the way. You see, although there are lots of development companies out there, we believe we’re unique in the way we communicate.

Perhaps it comes from us being trainers as well as developers, but we’ve always believed that giving you a proper understanding of why a database needs to be designed a certain way, and why databases are structured as they are is massively better than just turning up with a design and presenting you with a finished product.

By giving you a real grasp of what we’re doing and why, you’ll have proper ownership of the database which you are, after all, paying for.

And that way, you’ll feel more comfortable asking questions about whether things can be changed, or why things need to be done in a certain way, or whatever it may be.

So yes, we’ll be delighted to build your database, just as we’ve done for clients large and small. But we never forget whose database it is.

If that sounds like the way you would like to work, why not take a look at the steps we’ll go through to build a database, or better yet, give us a call on 020 3397 1333, and we can have a chat.

[/fusion_modal][fusion_modal name=”_fromexcel” title=”My data is in a whole heap of Excel sheets” size=”large” border_color=”#f37021″ show_footer=”yes”]

If you’ve got an Excel file – or perhaps a number of them – with all your data already sitting there, you’re not alone.

When most of our customers call us, they’ve already got a load of data. It’s sitting in a series of Excel spreadsheets, and gradually becoming more and more unmanageable.

We can look at what you’ve got, see how it works, and show you how it might work as a “proper” database. We can show you the benefits and talk to you about the costs. Then you can decide whether the advantages will be enough to make the leap worthwhile.

When it comes to actually importing your existing data, if you need to do that (not everyone does) then again, we can help. Of course, we’re happy to do that for you if you want, but you may prefer to do all or some of that work yourselves to save on the cost. And if that’s the case, we’ll tell you what needs to be done so that you can take care of all the preparatory work (which is usually about 80% of the effort), and just leave us to do the final import.

[/fusion_modal][fusion_modal name=”_databaseproblems” title=”My database no longer serves my needs adequately” size=”large” border_color=”#f37021″ show_footer=”yes”]So, you have a database, but it no longer meets your needs. You need it to do more, or it’s stopped working altogether. Maybe your needs have changed and you need the database to change a bit too.

It’s a really common scenario that the person who designed a database has moved on, or no longer has time to maintain it. Or you used an external company who aren’t around any more.

We can come and take a look at what you’ve got, and give you an honest opinion about where best to go from here. We’ll show you why we’re drawing the conclusions that we are, and explain what the costs would be to either repair, expand or replace your database.

At that point, you’re free to make your own decision about whether to invest in your existing database, replace it, or keep things as they are.

Whichever you choose, we won’t charge for an initial consultation and our advice. So, if you’d like to speak, just give us a call on 020 3397 1333, and let’s take it from there.[/fusion_modal][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_4″ layout=”2_5″ spacing=”” center_content=”no” hover_type=”none” link=”” min_height=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_position=”left top” background_repeat=”no-repeat” border_size=”0″ border_color=”” border_style=”solid” border_position=”all” padding=”” dimension_margin=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=”” last=”no”][fusion_title hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” size=”1″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default”]

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.
