Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long will it take to develop my database?
A. The length of time it takes to develop a system depends on the size and complexity of the system. As a general guide, a small system may only take 2-4 weeks while a larger more complex system may take approximately 6-12 weeks
Q. How much does it cost to have a database built?
A. Again, this depends on the size and complexity. Our rates for updates and maintenance tasks is $90 per hour. A full system design and implementation needs to be fully scoped before a contract price can be established.
We offer fixed price quotations with NO SUPRISES.
To discuss your needs, give us a call on 07 54458894 and we will try to assist.
Q. What can I expect from having a system built by Absolute Access?
A. We build systems you can rely on. You can enter your information knowing it will be safely captured and stored and you will be able to output it in your desired format.
You can look forward to a simple process. We take the time to get to know your business needs and rules, and design the Access database to fit your organisation.
We keep you informed of every point in the process and offer many opportunities for you to have input into the system. It's 'your system' and we aim to make sure you get exactly what you need and more.
Q. What is the process?
A. We use a 5 step approach will all our development work.
- Initial meeting and discussions
- Project proposal and quotation
- Prototype development and demonstration
- Fully system development and testing
- Implementation and support
Q. We're not based in Australia. How easy is it for you to build our system?
A. With today's technology, we're only a click away. Send us an email outlining your project and we'll give you an honest appraisal, quotation and timeline. We can work remotely on your project and deliver your customised solution via email or by providing you with a secure download link. If you'd prefer face-to-face contact, we'd love an excuse for a trip to see you.
Q. What versions of Access do you develop in?
A. All Microsoft Access versions.
Q. We have a system that just needs some updated functionality / conversion to a later version of Access. Can this be easily done?
A. If you are local, we can visit and either do the changes on site or off site. If you are outside of the Canberra/Sunshine Coast region or overseas, you can send us your database (or upload it) and we will do the work off site for a fixed price.
