In the 21st century, data management is more vital than ever to the continuity of any organisation. Whether it's keeping in touch with your funders and supporters, keeping your stakeholders up-to-date or making sure your customer-support staff have the right information when they need it, we can help.
We have over 10 years of database development and design experience. Whether you need a simple desktop application for a single user or an Intranet-based relational management database used by hundreds of users at once, we have the expertise to help you.
One size does not fit all
Information management is particularly vital in helping smaller organisations ( especially charities) punch above their weight. Most data management solutions offered to such organisations tend to draw on off-the-shelf products on a one size fits all basis. Yet for most orgnaisations (particularly those in niche arenas) this results in squeezing their data and management of it into a model which simply does not fit. Small businesses exist and thrive on the unique selling point, charities are usually addressing a need which has been previously unmet. In that kind of scenario does it not seem less efficient to adapt your business methods to match those of a database vendor's bigger customers. Your business or charity is unique, why would you want to take that edge away by being like everybody else?
Professional software that fits
For most small organisations, squeezing their data into an unfit model proves that one size does not fit all.
Our experience in the SME and VC sectors has led us to begin development on a web-based database application framework. It's in the latter stages of development and once complete it will enable us and others to rapidly develop secure, stable and scalable database applications for organisations of all sizes. Rather than the one-size-fits-all philosophy of yesterday, these databases will be bespoke, tailored to fit your need. A simple but powerful administrative front-end will enable you to manage your own database without requiring any programming knowledge – or we can so it for you. To further assist smaller charities we will soon be offering free hosting of these databases. Of course we're also happy to help in getting your old data across.
In accordance with our founding principles of fairness, quality & freedom we will be releasing the source-code for the framework as free software.
