This Financial Services client had special requirements for office software. Much of the existing data was being maintained in spreadsheets and it was time consuming and error prone to change data entry personnel.
This particular client had used Quickbooks in the past and hated being “nickel and dimed to death” so he opposed the suggestion of going with a packaged product. It’s probably just as well, since his office personnel required considerable training.
We produced custom software for this client using VBA under MS Access.
The software was completed with two weeks, but documentation and training took two more weeks.
The benefits to the client’s decision to go with custom software included cost and reliability. Modifications were always fast and inexpensive and he wasn’t always having to pay for upgrades and add-on services.
