Our Values

Quality

We pride ourselves in being professional in everything we do.

Integrity

We do our utmost to deliver what we promise in a timely manner.

Respect

We always treat people with respect, both within and outside of our organisation.

Features

Easy Installation

We can provide an installation package so applications can be installed on PCs with ease, creating features such as Start Menu shortcuts, Desktop shortcuts and Uninstall facilities.

Secure

Authentication of users allows us to restrict what they are allowed to do in your database. Traditional login can be used or we can automatically sign them in via their Windows user.

Templates to save time

To reduce the delivery time and keep the costs down we have developed an Access Development Template to generate the building blocks for your project as quickly as possible.

Flexible and Configurable

Access is more stable and scalable when the user side and admistrative side are separated. The admistrative side can be either another Access database or SQL Server.

Fast Setup Time

Within one working day we can usually create your starter database with login, listing and detail pages and many more great features.

Best of Both Worlds

Ever used a packaged piece of software and wished it could just do a little more, a bit differently or have one extra feature? Do you want a custom build system without the price tag?

Which version of access?

This was a highly popular and stable version and the standard platform for a number of years - even after the introduction of Access 2007 for many users. This version provided basic integration with the web and SharePoint and improved assistance in tracking down and fixing bugs.

Access 2007 introduced the tool ribbon and changed navigation. New powerful features included the Report View, Datasheet Totals and inline editing gave more power to the user. DB Gurus has developed some powerful templates to make the most of these features and provide really slick, professional database solutions.

Microsoft Access 2010 is one of our current offerings for new solutions with its enhanced features and tighter integration with SharePoint and simplified publishing to the web. Our new Access solutions now use application generation techniques to significantly reduce the development time and improve quality through the use of pre-tested code.

Access 2013 introduced apps to allow much easier integration with SharePoint. We have updated our Access 2010 template to take advantage of this new technology and leverage the power that SharePoint offers.

FAQ

We offer a number of different options to cover everything from one-off jobs through to long term support contracts. We can either work by the hour or by fixed price for project work. Prices vary by how big the job is and whether it is onsite or we can work from our office. Please contact us us for a quotation.

For projects we normally give you a fixed price quotation for producing a functional specification and a ballpark estimate for the whole project. Once we have done the analysis and design work we give you a completed functional specification with a fixed quotation to complete the project. This allows you to see exactly what you will get and mitigate the risks of the project.

We normally respond within 2 hours. We offer guaranteed response rates for clients on a support contract.

For clients on a support contract the minimum is 15 minutes. For new clients our minimum job is 4 hours.

We prefer bank transfers (bank details are on our invoices) or alternatively we accept PayPal. Please include your invoice number on all payments so that we can allocate payments correctly. We do not accept American Express.

Have you ever used a packaged piece of software and wished it could just do a little more, a bit differently or have one extra feature? Would you like a custom build system but without the custom built price tag?

We cross the divide: We have developed a professional packaged database (see TheDatbase.net) which we can customise to your requirements so you end up with exactly what you need, in the least amount of time, at a reasonable cost.

We have developed Access database solutions for many clients both large and small - check out Portfolio and our Case Studies for more information.
