I Can Help
I have created custom software solutions for business people in the Cleveland, Ohio USA area for more than 2 decades. I have acquired the experience and insight for how to make programming the efficient and time saving business partner it should be. Many of the applications I have created were for industrial and manufacturing businesses as well as job shops. Please scroll to the lower portion of this page to read testimonials and reviews from customers who have used my services.
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 software solution that can't be resolved with an "off-the-shelf" application. I have traditionally performed this work for industrial businesses, because they tend to use very specific processes that demand specialized solutions. However, I can cater to most any business that requires such specialized work.
Now, consider several situations that would create chaos without well designed programming solutions:
You own a manufacturing plant that has a real problem. Your employees are using a CAD/CAM software package that requires them to spend hours eliminating concentric arcs and circles from two dimensional views of metal parts. The concentric arcs and circles are a flaw created by the CAD/CAM program. Time is being wasted and employee productivity is suffering from the needless extra work. (This was an actual project I took care of years ago. I designed a software solution in C programming that scanned through the text file created by the CAD/CAM program that contained the layout parameters for the two dimensioanal view of a metal part. It quickly eliminated the concentric arcs and circles and reconstructed the text file as required by the customer.)
Although sales are growing for your job shop, 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 custom 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 and by specific customer service representatives as well.)
You are the foreman in an industrial heat treating plant. There are multiple jobs being done simultaneoulsy. You need to stay on top of how each one is progressing. Trying to do this in an office at a desktop computer is too ackward and time consuming. Even walking around with a laptop could be clumsy as you try to manage the different processes being performed. Wouldn't it be nice to have a customized mobile app that lets you add, view, modify and delete the various heat treating processes you perform in a real time fashion as you walk from one area to the next?
Walking around an electroplating job shop with a bunch of printed papers detailing the "plating recipes" for various electroplating processes is getting to be too much to handle. You have to shuffle through all the print outs to find the right one for the plating job you are standing in front of. Jobs have to get done on time and shipped out before the UPS or Fedex guy/gal arrives. Your stress level is through the roof and now you are thinking, "There has to be a better way...", right? Why not create a mobile solution that conveniently organizes your plating recipes so they can be retrieved quickly and easily?
