IT Support


We are a small IT consultancy based in Kent focusing on the design & development of IT solutions to meet clients’ needs in a timely and cost-effective way.

The systems that we build range from single PC, office network to internet-based solutions. Almost all involve the use of an underlying database and we bring a wealth of experience in database design across a wide range of proprietary database systems.

The experience gained and software libraries developed in building solutions for a long list of past projects enables new systems to be developed quickly and cost-effectively. Sound user documentation, comprehensive training and reliable ongoing support come as standard.

As well as providing general IT consulting services, we offer a sales admininstration system for farmers who cater to the Christmas market. Further details can be found at During 2010, the system will be available as an internet-based service.


For the technically-minded....

We have particularly strong experience with Powerbuilder (versions 3 to 11.5) over a period of many years. The database systems employed include IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase, Informix and MySQL.

Internet-based solutions typically include the Apache Tomcat web server, Java, Servlets, Java Server Pages, Hibernate and the usual mix of HTML, JavaScript, CSS and XML.


We can help

We are more than happy to talk or meet to discuss any requirement that you may have. In the first place, you may simply want an honest, approachable IT contact to talk over general issues and options. That’s fine - please give us a call.

We’re particularly well qualified to offer you Powerbuilder support. This could include supporting or extending existing systems or conversion to the internet or your own intranet.
