Contract Filemaker Developer
Our professional computer experience spans a range of database programming and technical support.
We began with several years of FilemakerPro and then started using PHP running against MySQL in website environments. Later, we added Borland's Delphi database programming language running against My-SQL and MS SQL Server. Delphi is similar to C++.
For several years our programming activities centered around the Florida hurricane insurance business, and then on production process monitoring for an international food supply company.
Presently we prefer working with small companies who need to start building their database/information system and within the user-friendly FilemakerPro environment.
Often, some very simple scripting can make your work much easier.
Example: One of our clients has an online store. The store's administrative interface provides some ROI information, but not enough to be useful. With Filemaker we wrote a script to automatically download data from their online database and then process the data to reveal how many of each product had been sold for a given date range and the average sales price and profit, as well other information.
The Application Development Process
System Analysis: By spending more initial time analyzing your user requirements and designing the application to fit those requirements, we use less time on code production, costly adjustments, and enhancements later on.
Specifications: The process of developing clear design specifications is more detailed than many customers realize and is essential to fulfill your needs correctly as quickly as possible.
Code Production: Clear design specs keep your costs to a minimum and ensure that your expectations are met or exceeded at delivery.
It is vital that you, the decision maker, have accurate information at your fingertips--to determine trends, spot irregularities, and catch problems before they get out of hand. Without this critical information, blind spots can develop that hide potentially dangerous and costly situations.
Notes and spreadsheets may work well in the beginning, but as your company matures, it is necessary to integrate the parts of an information gathering system into a single, integrated, and efficient application.
When you are ready to begin your project please call Barry at 641.472.6011 to arrange an initial survey of your situation. Since pre-development analysis must take place before any application can be started, please factor extra time into your projected end date.
