Databases, Spreadsheets and Templates
Design, Development and Implementation

When you want to make the most of the information available to your business, DMW will work closely with you to increase productivity, to identify and exploit opportunities, and to improve earnings.

DMW designs, develops and implements databases, spreadsheets and templates as business solutions for clients determinied to maximise on their investment in IT.

For sole traders, SMEs and corporations, DMW has delivered databases and spreadsheet covering a wide range of business sectors, including automotive, aviation, commerce, construction, creative, distribution, education, finance, insurance, ITC, manufacturing, media, marketing, public services, publishing, training, transport, travel and retail.

Support for Databases and Spreadsheets

If you have a database or spreadsheet that needs an overhaul, or is due additions, DMW can provide the technical expertise in support of your own efforts or can take on the whole project for you.

For the commission of a new database, you will get the best price when your ITT (Invitation to Tender) is accompanied by a comprehensive specification.

If your spec is sketchy, potential suppliers or contractors will be reckoning whether 20% or 30% added into their quote is enough to cover themselves against all eventualities.

Your spec should help in avoiding unfortunate situations, for example:

  • Your supplier or contractor invoices for what they claim was work not originally specified
  • Support your claim that the outsourced work has not been completed satisfactorily.

Please consider DMW for help in preparing your specification.

Conversion of Databases

Microsoft’s support for versions of Access earlier than 2010 is running out, if it didn't do so years ago.

This means no more security patches and therefore the possibility that without appropriate conversions databases will come to jeopardise a business’s accreditation or certification.

Microsoft recommend conversions to the latest version of Office.

If you need assistance with conversions, please put DMW on your list of potential suppliers.

Occasional Help On Demand

If you need a spot of help only, DMW offers support to users of Microsoft Access, Excel and Word, on an as-and-when-needed basis.

Additionally, DMW provides IT consultancy when you could do with assistance from an independent source. For instance, if you are putting an IT project out to tender and you require assistance with the preparation of technical specifications.

Working With Your IT People

Much of DMW’s work for large clients is on behalf of a department, or a local office, in making available to its users subsets of the information stored in centralised business systems. Users want to do their own thing (what-ifs, special reports and so on) with those data without fear of harming them.

Working closely with your IT people, DMW will secure the delivery of data and safeguard primary sources, while making as little extra work as possible for everyone involved.

Access and Excel Expertise and Ideas

DMW’s expertise in the application of Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel, and their integration with the other Microsoft Office programs, including Word, has been built over the decades DMW has been using these programs since they first appeared in the UK.

In working on hundreds of different projects, DMW has gained insights into many businesses and how they operate. Experience built this way, means DMW brings ideas, not only technical competence, to any new project.
