Buying a new database can be a daunting prospect
We understand the anxiety of venturing into unknown territory - knowing what to ask for, and what certain features should cost can be hard to determine.
That’s why we offer a suite of consultancy services which help to keep you in control of the process:
We can help map out your business processes and assemble a logical, clear specification which acts as a contractual agreement with a developer and helps to keep you focussed on the original reason for the database.
We don’t provide legal advice, but can provide best practice guidance around consent if you are working with data concerning people, and how to comply with the Data Protection Act.
Any system is only as good as the data which it contains. We can help you tackle this common problem with a number of different tools: mandatory fields, workflow to help notify staff about missing data, and compliance reporting if you want to put in place data quality targets.
Steering and future development
Who will look after your system after you've worked so hard on getting it right? Setting up both a group of interested parties, and a plan for future development will help secure the future success of your database.
