how we can help your business :: financial director / accountant

As an accountant or financial director we can provide an off-the-shelf solution in the form of the Business Management System (BMS) that encapsulates a basic accounts system for recording income and expenditure within the business. The BMS contains a wealth of financial reports: -

  • Bank reconciliation
  • Cash flow analysis
  • Cash flow forecasts
  • Credit control
  • Profit & loss
  • VAT

The BMS can be customised to match your specific needs, using the core components as the foundation for your system.

QuickBooks Sage MYOB

We have also developed a number of bespoke software solutions for businesses throughout the United Kingdom including accounts systems and stock control solutions. We are able to integrate bespoke solutions into the most popular accounting based solutions - Sage, MYOB and QuickBooks - and are currently developing a bespoke estimating and quotation system that will be integrated into QuickBooks. During 2009 we developed a cash flow forecasting solution - for more information see news article - jump start your business forecasting - for Protelligent Limited how are now taking it to market.

how we can help your business :: it director / system administrator

As an IT Director or System Administrator we can provide a complete bespoke service.

Database Development

Our bespoke software development team traditionally used Visual Studio and Crystal Reports XI for database development; however we have recently developed a number of desktop applications using Java (news article - java proves to be best solution for new breed of bespoke software). Past projects include sales, estimating, tool hire and a simulation package for the gas & oil industry that has been described as "world class".

Recently we have developed a number of applications that are integrated into other "off-the-shelf solutions" - Sage, MYOB and QuickBooks - as well as "mash-ups" for web based solutions - Google Maps, Twitter and LinkedIn Application Platform Interfaces (API) - that enable us to integrate functionality and contents.

Web Development

LAMP Our web development team are experienced Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) developers and our unique framework uses Object Oriented Programming (OOP) methodologies ensuring all projects are robust and fully scalable offering you unrivalled value for money! Our process relies on you investing the resources into the creation of a "Definition of Requirements" (or specification) so that we can understand your business and you can be confident that the solution will meet your expectations.

The diagram above shows you how we gather the information required for the "Definition of Requirements".

  • The first stage is to find out how this is a problem;
  • The second stage defines what you would like to happen instead;
  • The third stage is painting a picture of the proposed system;
  • The fourth stage is the deliverable in the form of a specification - definition of requirements - with fixed costs and time-scales;

Once the definition of requirements has been signed off the development of the system can proceed, as shown below. It is essential that you take an active role in this process so that the technical implementation becomes a natural conclusion to the process with the launch of your new system.

This approach is tailored for each individual client ensuring that the process is appropriate for the needs of your business and the proposed project.
