I Can Help

As a developer, I have created customized desktop solutions for business people in the Cleveland, Ohio USA area for more than 2 decades. In that time, I have acquired the experience and insight for how to make programming the efficient and time saving business partner it should be. If you will, consider just a few of the challenges that beg for easy to use, reliable customized solutions:

  • Confusion from a poorly planned appointment schedule.
  • Inaccurate job costing reports from false or skewed labor hours and purchase order database records.
  • Incomplete and/or unbalanced accounts receivable and accounts payable as well as chart of accounts.
  • Lost invoices that were unknowingly aged for prolonged periods.
  • Needed records in a database can't be retrieved.
  • Strategic business decisions based on false or skewed sales reporting information.

If you are running a general office type of business, then Intuit Quickbooks or Microsoft Office will probably be fine for your purposes. There is a need for my services when a customer has to create a very specific programmed solution that can't be resolved with an "off-the-shelf" software package. I have traditionally performed this work for the manufacturing industry, because they tend to use very specific processes that demand customized solutions. However, I can cater to most any business that requires such specialized work.

Now, consider a few scenarios that would create workplace headaches without a well designed programming solution from a capable software developer:

Scenario #1:

You own a tool and die shop that has a real problem. Your CAD/CAM personnel have to spend hours eliminating concentric arcs and circles from two dimensional side views of metal parts that need to be drilled to specification. The concentric arcs and circles were created by the CAD/CAM program they are required to use. Time is being wasted and employee productivity is suffering from the needless extra work that has to be done. (This was an actual project I took care of years ago. I designed a solution that scanned through a text file that contained the specifications for circles and arcs, some concentric and some not for a two dimensional view of a metal part used in a tool and die shop. It quickly eliminated the concentric arcs and circles and reconstructed the text file so it was ready for the next phase of production.)

Scenario #2:

You are the administrative vice president in an industrial pattern shop. Shop orders have to be job costed out around the clock so the owners of the company will know where they stand with regard to labor, materials and money made or lost on each shop order. Labor hours, purchase orders and special materials have to be run through an internal company job costing formula. This in turn must be interfaced to an employee benefit & profit sharing plan for the company. You are wasting enormous amounts of time hunting for documentation and file folders around the office that are needed to make the complex calculations. Productivity is falling like a rock and the only way out of this logistical nightmare is a customized job costing package with an employee profit sharing module. (Two decades ago I created a programmed solution like this for a long time customer who is still using it to this day.)

Scenario #3:

Although your company's sales are growing, you are totally in the dark with regard to how sales of your various product lines trend over time and through your sales people. You very much need this information so you can make intelligent plans for the future of your company. Trying to do all this by hand would be absolutely prohibitive. Not so with a customized sales reporting application. (I made an array of customized sales reports for a long time customer that reveals deep, insightful trends as to how their various product lines sell over time. It also reveals how sales productivity among their customer service representatives trend as well.)
