Welcome to Alvechurch Data

Welcome to the home page of Alvechurch Data. We are based near Birmingham in the English midlands and we specialise in small business databases. Our experience covers all versions of Microsoft FoxPro and Access databases and we do all of our work here in Birmingham so we'll always be on hand to help you with the flexible local support that you need.

Every organisation uses databases. Some systems are critical to everyday operations, others are small but useful tools that take the drudgery out of routine tasks. They might not be very exciting but databases are important and we have twenty years' experience building systems that work.

We can:

  • Extend your operations by building a new database to meet a new challenge.
  • Improve your business by upgrading an existing database to do exactly what you want it to do.
  • Reduce your problems by training everyone to make the best use of the database.
  • Increase your flexibility by enabling you to build your own databases.

We have built up a colection of hints and tips for database users and programmers over the years. I hope you'll find something useful there.
