The majority of our work centers around the Microsoft family of products. Access is an excellent Relational Database Management System for meeting the needs of small to medium sized business and corporate work groups. Professional applications can be developed rapidly and easily maintained.  Applications can be integrated with Word, Excel and Outlook to create powerful workflow applications.  Utilizing the VB language integrated into all of these products allows us to create complete end to end solutions. Our library of custom VB code adds to these powerful capabilities and gives us a head start on each project. 

SQL Server can be utilized in the back end to create true client - server databases. It is the dominant choice for  Fortune 500 IT departments today for it's reliability, security, capacity and speed.

ASP.Net allows us to extend our database applications to the internet. It integrates seamlessly with SQL Server and utilizes VB as it's scripting language.
