For larger companies and dot coms, D.M.Hoffer Consulting most often implements MySQL-based solutions. We are accustomed to designing databases from scratch and can also import data from other formats like MS Access, MS Excel, MS SQL Server, and text files.
For smaller companies, we have on several occasions implemented Filemaker Pro as the "right-sized" cross-platform relational database program of choice. Offering complete visual customizability as well as bullet-proof security and built-in web publishing options, Filemaker Pro is often a preferable solution for small businesses that need an easy but powerful solution to manage data. With Windows and MacOS editions as well as ODBC support for linking to large external data repositories, Filemaker Pro can function as either the complete solution for your database demands or exclusively as a front end.
D.M.Hoffer Consulting can create variable levels of security so the same set of databases can be shared by multiple users with different levels of access.
