Data Into Knowledge
We are Data Engineers. Put simply, we unlock the information hidden in your data giving you the knowledge to make better decisions about how your business should be run.
Breaking log jams for SMEs can release so much potential and enable a company to move on to the next step. Our goal is to be seen as the "shaker" that enables you to be a "mover".
We analyse your available data; validate and consolidate it; make it secure; and structure it so that you can turn it into information for you. Information that will be genuinely useful for running your business profitably, and for planning the next steps in its development.
Our analyses, adjustments, and additions also deliver productivity improvements. We highlight bottlenecks in the processing of your data, recommend revised procedures, and program your computers to "grease the wheels".
Our initial experience with computers was gained during school days working with papertape input. One mistake and we had to write the whole program all over again!
Oh what an advance, Punch cards. Now we only needed to change the line of code (punch card) that was not correct. It was necessary to be economic with our code though. We only had 8k of memory and that had to include the operating system.
In those far off days we were lucky to get one program test per day. As a result we had to learn how to get the logic right before developing any lines of code.
This overall training still stands us in good stead today.
All of our solutions are affordable, easy to implement and focus on day to day business issues.
The goal of TBF is to provide independent, pragmatic advice on computing solutions. This is done with particular emphasis on the ways in which Management Information Systems can be developed or improved to help you and your staff.
We give your staff more time to run the business.
We provide you with new information to manage the business and to explore new opportunities.
What we do is provide 'Profit from Your Data'. What we don't do is ask you to restructure your existing data, and we don't require you to stop using your established systems.
We don't claim to be all things to all men. We do claim to know when we can help and when it's in your interest that we walk away.
We are now working more in the not for profit sector. We are still open to commercial contracts although we tend to be taking a more altruistic approach to our customers and projects.
Most of our current projects involve us in the development and maintenance of non-complex web sites for SME's and Charities.
We anticipate that our future direction will be in the development of apps for mobile devices with a specific goal of helping cancer patients and their carers.
