Database Development

Are you using an off-the-shelf database package that just isn’t coping with what you need? Is your existing bespoke database design simply no longer fit for purpose? Don’t worry you are not alone and this is a common issue if your company has exceeded expectations and is moving onwards and upwards. The Yorkshire Apps database designers and software development team are on hand to design a bespoke database that will allow your company to move forward, migrating all of your current information with you and providing you with rich features and functionality that will allow you to ustilise your custom database in ways you previously only dreamt of.

A database used in-house is only as strong as the foundations upon which it was first designed and built; this applies to off-the-shelf packages and indeed previously custom-built ones. After all, when you first started in business your requirements were not those of the company you have today. While you hoped to expand and to grow there was no need (and perhaps no budget) to go beyond what was necessary.

Using our knowledge and experience when it comes to database design, we can integrate an existing database with a front-end that will allow more users to access it at the same time. This may require migrating an existing Excel database into a new Access database but the end result, take our word for it, is staggering.

There is nothing that slows a workforce down more than being repeatedly refused access to your current database in order to gain access to or store information because there are too many users. Our ability to migrate Excel with Access allows for a larger number of users to alter and retrieve this data without having to take users off the network to do it.

We can also provide you with a front-end to the database that will have the fields you most use and the field that you most need. This also applies to providing you with the ability to run searches based on your own criteria. Our unique bespoke databases allow for specific searches to be run or for your staff to run their own custom searches based on the fields and information provided.

But what else can a bespoke designed database do?

  • Management reporting – a well-designed database system will faciliatate the intelligent transformation of data into information to support management decision-making
  • Stock control – databases are great at logging transactions
  • Providing links to CRM (Customer Relationship Management) – comprehensive databases are at the heart of the main CRMs used to keep customers close and to help you know and understand them and serve them well
  • Storing and providing access to quotations – a well designed and efficient database systemwill quickly enact complex computations and algoithmic calculations to generate quotations with teh minimum of fuss
  • Order Processing – well structured databases handle transaction processing and status storing and reporting with consumate ease

There really is an endless list of things your new bespoke database can do and the only limits are your imagination. With existing legacy databases integrated into a bespoke database you can have access to more information, even information that might not have been used for some time, but having access to it in a searchable format is often advantageous.
