Service Description

My main service:

I build, improve, or repair Access databases with Visual Basic or train your personnel to do the same. I design my products for users who don't know Access. I automate the technical parts and create a simple user experience.

Why do you want this?
- Small- to medium-sized company that frequently handles large amounts of customer data -- for example, for bulk mailings and mail order.
- Field workers don't know computers and may mess up data in Excel or lose it on paper.
- Frequently employ temporary workers and need a simple data system they can use with minimum training.
- Business spreadsheets are becoming too large and complicated to handle -- especially if they include many VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP functions.

Let me show you how custom databases can improve your operational efficiency.

I am also available for services including graphic arts, copy writing, policy writing, technical writing, PowerPoint presentation design, public speaking, audio/video design, and more -- see my Skills list.

I can provide on-site employee training for Excel, Access, Adobe Photoshop, and can develop training programs for your own in-house systems.
