We can offer development to suit just about every need on the Windows platforms today. Development in Visual Basic 6 and internet development using Active Server Pages, or just plain HTML if you prefer, take up the majority of skills in use. More advanced and modern skills include Visual C++ 6, and Visual Basic .NET and Visual C#. Design work is done using Microsoft Visio. We can supply clients with a functional specification for a system, which can then be used to develop from by any qualified development team.

At the back-end, all database work is done using Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (or 7). Support can be given on all these platforms as well, including limited support on various Microsoft .NET Servers, including Exchange Server 5.5 and 2000, Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server, Microsoft Mobile Information Server (MIS) 2001 and Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000 and XP operating systems.
