What Software Solutions can do for
- Create a custom business application. Your business probably has at least one
distinct process that is the key to your success. Capture your
individuality in a custom application to improve productivity and
profitability which allows your business to flourish. See Applications
for some examples.
- Convert an existing application to a new one.
Software Solutions can convert data and applications from almost any older
system to one that utilizes new technologies including Microsft Access, Excel and SQL/Server. See
Applications for some examples.
- Improve the performance, appearance and user-friendliness of an existing
application. Application performance can often be improved by modifying
database design or by simply changing the way information is gathered (queried)
from the database (see Database
Benefits). When your application outgrows Access, let us upgrade it to
SQL/Server. Also, many of the techniques and methodologies in Software Solutions code library can be
easily added to an existing system to improve it's usefulness, just ask my
clients (see Client References).
- Upgrade an existing Access application to the current
version. This one step can improve the performance of your
existing application, as well as make available new features
that have the potential to increase its functionality and
- Web-enable an existing application. Access
applications can now access data via the Internet by
upgrading the data tables to SQL/Server while still
utilizing the existing Access Forms & Reports. We can
also develop new web page interfaces to Access or
residing in 'The Cloud'. For an example, please go
- Deploy and apply upgrades to
third party applications you use to run your business.
Software Solutions specializes in Microsoft Technologies: Access,
Excel and VBA for small to medium sized business applications and SQL/Server,
VB.Net and SQL Server Reporting Services for more robust applications. Software Solutions also develops web based applications that can be used to your
companies advantage to establish a web presence or to share company data
among employees via the Internet.
- Microsoft Access:
Microsoft Access is a relational database system that is one of the most underrated
technologies available today for application
development. It is the perfect tool for many small to
medium size business applications. It has the ability
to supply some very important, although not well known,
technologies to guarantee data reliability and consistency.
Practically anyone can use it to develop a custom business application, however
the techniques used to improve data quality are often not known to the
common user, which means that many 'home-grown' systems
don't apply them and can soon become unwieldy and less than
useful. Software Solutions understands these techniques and has been using
them for more than 25 years to develop robust business systems that stand the
test of time. See Database
Benefits for a further explanation of these relational techniques. If you have an
Excel application that has reached it's performance limit or
an underperforming Access application, don't throw it out, let
Software Solutions fix it for you!
- Visual Basic: An extremely popular
and powerful programming langueage for developing business applications.
Software Solutions utilizes the power of Visual
Basic for Applications (VBA)
with Microsoft Access and/or Excel to implement processes unique to your
business. Software Solutions utilizes
Visual Basic .Net to develop web
sites that make your application available over the Internet.
full-feature database. If your custom application outgrows
Microsoft Access, it is simple to upgrade to
SQL/Server. Performance can be
greatly improved by using the power of SQL/Server. By developing your business
logic in Access an application can grow as you grow. You
can retain all of the forms and reports from your Access
system and replace only the data repository. Software
Solutions has been doing this since 2000. New technologies allow you to
utilize Access forms and reports which connect to a SQL/Server database over the
SQL/Server Reporting Services: Do you own an
application based on Access or SQL/Server and need custom
reports to support your business?
SQL/Server Reporting Services (SSRS) provides full-featured
reporting for such systems. Reporting Services is a server-based reporting
platform that provides comprehensive reporting functionality for a variety of
data sources. Software
Solutions has been working with SSRS since 2005.
