What Options Are Available?

- Provide ongoing support to a new or existing Access Database or Excel Spreadsheet
Often a department can “inherit” legacy Access database or Excel Spreadsheet tools that have been developed in-house but are no longer appropriate for the task for which they were originally designed. This maybe because the original developer has left the company, moved onto other departments or retired.Our expert Excel and Access Consultants can not only assist in updating such tools but also provide training and support so they are used to best effect again.
What Are The First Steps?
We will want to meet, either in person or remotely, this enables us to get a good understanding of your existing system or tool and to see what needs to be included in your desired solution. It also introduces you to the team who will be working on the project. When we have completed this review we will provide you with a report outlining the options available including the potential costs and timescales to deliver the solution.
How Much Will It Cost?
For most projects you will be given a fixed cost. This allows you to assess the potential return on investment and ensures no unwanted surprises at the end of the project. We also offer a day rate for the appropriate projects and are always open to discuss the cost structure to adjust to your parameters.
What Happens Next?
When you are satisfied with the scope and price we will start the build. Most projects are iterative and often evolve during the development. The consultant will be in regular contact with you to update progress, either on site or remotely. Once the tool is completed and delivered, there is a period of training and extensive testing. During this time we will fix bugs and also enhance areas to your approval.
When the project is finished and fully installed the first month of support is provided free of charge. This will ensure that any unforeseen bugs can be resolved in a live situation.
After this period, we don’t just disappear and you have a number of options available to you:
- We offer an annual maintenance contract to cover bugs fixes and minor usability issues.
- Alternatively, if you decide that the annual maintenance option is not for you we can just charge an hourly rate for fixes.
- Further Development will be quoted on an individual basis.
