Delivering a database

We will deliver the components of your database and install them on your PC and we will also deliver the source code that generated the program. This gives you the long-term security of owning the system that we have developed for you. We have every intention of staying in this business but you need the security of having the source code so that you can turn to somebody else should anything unforeseen happen to us. Without this source code you would be unable to make any changes to the system or fix any faults as they arise.

The code will be well-commented as an aid to future developers. We can provide full documentation for users or developers if required. We can also deliver various levels of support if you need the flexibility of being able to make continuous improvements to your database for yourselves.

Licenses and Copyright

You will own the software once you have paid for it in full and you will be free to make as many copies as you need for your users to run on as many PCs as necessary. Microsoft Access systems will need an appropriate copy of Access on each PC. FoxPro systems are delivered as a complete package with all the files needed to run the database on any suitable Windows PC.

Although you as the client own the code that we produce for you, we retain copyright and you will not be able to sell copies of the program to third parties. We also retain the right to reuse components that we have used in your system. Many of these, for example a login screen, are part of our standard library.

Client Testimonials

"Service contract management and invoicing have improved markedly over the last 12 months with Alvechurch Data's assistance & experience"
Will Farrell, Service Manager, Direct Air & Pipework, Coventry

"I just thought I would drop you a line to say thank you for the time you spent with us last month. Both Jackie and myself thought that the training was superb and were especially appreciative of the extent to which you tailored the course and the extra time you spent to help us with some of our more complex issues."
Thomas Still, Research Executive, Product Perceptions Ltd, Crawley

"Geoff Franklin proved to be very responsive to my request for urgent help with Access database information. He took me from a standing start to producing simple reports in 1 day and solved a long outstanding problem with extracting Foxpro based tables , which our reseller had failed to complete. At the end of the day we had a short usable outstanding Purchase Orders report - a first in 10 years! Highly recommended."
Bob Lock, Skyline Systems, Cheltenham

"As a trainer, Geoff Franklin has the rare skill of getting trainees to work through the material themselves without him taking over the keyboard. As a result they have confidence to apply the learning after the session."
Peter Jackson, Holly Training, Leamington Spa
