Service Description

I provide cost-effective custom solutions for small to medium sized business that range from from a single purpose to complete systems. Some examples of the services that I provide are server hardware, operating systems and software installation and configuration, desktop hardware, operating systems and software installation and configuration, database and general software development, training on COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) software as well as custom development that I perform.

I do not give a low bid just to come back later and adjust the bid for the agreed functional. However, if there is a change in the requirements, there will be an adjustment in in the price unless a separate private job is created. The project is not complete until you say it is. Depending on the project, there is a bug fix period of 15, 30, 45, or 60 days.

I cannot compete with the prices of Sri Lanka, China, India, Pakistan, and other 3rd world countries. However, I am within 2 time zones (located in central time zone). I speak English as a native language since I was born and raised in America to American parents. I also do not restrict my development to the exact limits of the work requested. I actually do analysis and propose enhancements that provide more efficient and ease of use solution. Most are built within the price of the contact. I remain in contact with my customer with every...
