— Database Services —

If you have a growing number of records and you find it difficult to locate specific information when you need it, it’s time for a database.

You can easily generate regular reports — at the click of a button.

I am a certified Microsoft Office Specialist in Access which is a good product for record keeping.

I also create online databases so your clients can quickly locate what they need on your web site without having to wade through pages of information.

— Data Collection & Analysis Services —

Well designed surveys and focus groups can provide you with the information you need before offering a new service or launching a new product.

Questionnaires can be administered on paper, by phone or on the web. Web-based surveys are particularly fast and inexpensive since there is no reliance on snail mail.

In addition to collecting the data, I provide analysis of the results.
