PUPOSE OF APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
A Professional Developer can design Applications that help employees process and manage data to reduce expenses and make the employees more productive and efficient.
Third party developer versus current staff – or no one on staff has the expertise to develop using industry standard design principles and a user-friendly interface.
Actually, your expenses will be less with an outside developer instead of letting an employee tackle the project.
Projects will get done correctly with a higher level of quality and get done faster even though the per-hour charge for an outside developer is higher.
The overall cost of the project will be lower and with better quality.
Consolidate your information system data.
Instead of running your business with a slew of Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, utilize a Data-Centric System to handle it all in one place.
A Data-Centric System centralizes your data into one information system for easier recording, tracking, and retrieval.
Creates a centralized point for all of your data - link to other data sources as well.
Employees’ "product” is data/information and can be treated as such.
You can track Productivity and Efficiency for your information processing system just like manufacturing does with actual products.
A custom designed app will let them process their "product" faster.
Customize your information processing instead of using a canned program or a number of different canned programs.
In this way, employees only have to learn one way of doing things.
When a custom designed app is developed, the end users help in the development process which makes learning to use it much quicker and less training.
Let the computer do the work and free up the employee for other tasks.
Don't pay your employees to be manual Data Processors.
Wasting their time and your money and taking away from the time they should be spending on their real job – actual costs plus opportunity costs.
System is easier to work with making employees more productive and efficient.
A User-Friendly Interface lets employees enter and edit data easily and retrieve data quickly based on business rules.
You don’t just “computerize” your manual system but develop a computerized information processing application.
Create Management Analysis Outputs with a click of a button instead of hours of work.
It is much easier and quicker to compile your data via a database system.
Metrics and Analytics are viewable in real-time or with a click of a button.
Produce reports, PDF outputs, emails, charts, labels, & envelopes in a variety of ways.
Multi-user access is a given with a database application.
Restrict access to various data or reports.
Maintain integrity of your data.
Security of data versus paper filing system.
DEVELOPMENT POINTS WE CONSIDER
- Include all the Client End-Users in the Development Process
- Design the screens to reflect your data entry flow
- Use English wording on Labels and Buttons - not some cryptic image that no one knows what it means
- By including the End-User in the design process, the learning curve to use the application is cut dramatically
- We don't over-engineer the design. We try to make it simple enough that a knowledgeable person can make minor changes
- We use standard, industry accepted design principles so that anyone with MS Access knowledge can understand
This is your Application for your Business so you have a stake in the Process
