What We Do
Consulting has been in business for 15 years; a long
time in this industry. The owner, myself, has thus helped a
large number of people, and learned a good deal about
both the technology and about how to assist firms and
individuals. We believe a good consultant is more than
a good technician - they must be able to quickly learn the
nature of the business they need to help, and they must
comfortably adjust to new and different environments -
this we believe we do well.
Having seen the inside of hundreds
of business and scores of start-ups, having started and
nurtured a number of our own firms, we are business
consultants in our own right. We are experts in the practical
application of information technology (IT) to business needs.
We can advise you, guide you; prevent you from needless
expenditures and suggest useful paths for investment in IT.
Though I emphasize below the practical services we offer,
there are more abstract ones as well ; "systems
analysis" and "systems
administration" the fancy terms.
We can help you decide what tools you need ,
and how best to put them together, in order to get
your job done, or your office
functioning more efficiently.

operating systems) to large multi server WANs.

software; from admissions packages for schools to
"recipe" systems for plastic manufacturers to
medical bar code systems for drug trials. We can do this in
a text or GUI environment. We use Visual Basic, Perl,
Delphi, Access, SQL Server, Java and, because we've been in
business for more than a few months we can program in legacy
languages such as dBase, Foxpro and Clipper, to name a few.
We write for local computers, networks or the web.

security and Virus detection and elimination. From local
