Our Database Development Skills
We have an in-house team of developers able to provide bespoke database applications, especially those that interface with websites.
Our clients for this work range from small business up to major multinational corporations and we have produced systems ranging from small website applications through to sophisticated management information systems.
Our preferred development platform is LAMP (Linux server, Apache operating system, MySQL database and PHP programming language). This is a popular choice with government agencies and large business keen to avoid expensive license fees from the alternative Windows-based development.
We are one of very few marketing and design agencies with a defined quality standards policy.
Examples of Database Development
We have produced database systems for interfacing between marketing websites and finance product calculators in markets such as loans, pensions and private healthcare. Many of these systems require secure servers as dealing with confidential medical or financial data. They often involve integration with 3rd party calculators or best deal finders.Mapping and data analysis systems
It is possible to show a complex set of data graphically and if the data relates to geographical regions to show this with Baidu/Google maps or Google earth. We work with clients on many quality projects to show data on maps on websites. Some of these datasets are very large and require data manipulation and analysis before display.Management Information Systems
We have produced integrated management information systems that deal with all communication between the company and their clients. We have done this in industries such as healthcare and adult education.Marketing Information Systems
A much simpler alternative to a full management information system is a marketing system; this quickly indicates where good leads or sales have come from and the aim is to provide just the information needed.Workflow and document tracking
As processes get moved online, there is a need for systems which accurately record the process of sending, receiving, actioning and replying to documents. These projects range from the simple job applications systems to the more complex handling of local authority report submission over many years with multiple levels of review and different reviewers depending on geographical location.
