Software: Analyses, Design and Development

We provide individual software analyses and tests, design and development services to enhance your existing software systems.  We improve existing systems to adopt them to new or changed circumstances.  We develop new custom build software systems according to your requirements.

We are specialised in Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office Access and Visual Basic (VBA).  We also provide analysis, testing and consulting for any other applications and systems.

For our OPAL address, document and dossier management system (CRM) we developed various fully customised features to replace standard Microsoft Access features. Examples are our navigation bar with navigation buttons, our message dialog, our zoom and help windows, which are all featured with full GUI translations, additional functionality and user-friendly appearance. For the OPAL version running with Access 2016, we control for example the appearance of sub-form scrollbars to avoid specific Access 2016 issues and improve user friendliness. All these software develoments can be applied and adjusted for the individual Microsoft Access applications of our customers.

To best meet the requirements of our customers we also develop individual extensions and additions to our OPAL address, document and dossier management system (CRM). Please see the OPAL Overview, which is illustrated with various screen copies.

Our services are individually customised to best meet your requirements.  Please contact us for any inquiries.
