I'm Iain Clark, a freelance software developer based in Royal Greenwich, South East London.
I offer IT services to local businesses.
I build back office and process management systems to help make your business slick and efficient. That way you can save time and money, improve accuracy and impress your clients.
I specialise in developing web and desktop back office systems. I can build from scratch or take over support and development of existing systems. Using the latest technologies, I can integrate new and existing systems to add efficiencies and eliminate multi-entry of data. Programming languages I specialise in include PHP/MySQL, C#/SQL Server, Microsoft Access VBA/SQL.
Websites with my custom CMS are an expanding part of my portfolio. I design and build the site and give you a login to update parts of the site content yourself.
The CMS screens are clean and simple. I tailor the system around your website, so you only see the menu items relevant to you.
I design and build web and desktop database applications for companies of all sizes. Database technologies I work with include MySQL, SQL Server, SQLite & Access SQL.
I currently offer two subscription based web applications. An online invoicing system for small businesses and a availability calendar plugin for guest houses and B&Bs. See "Web Apps" in the menu above for more details.
I have a lot of experience in customising MS Office applications. I do a of lot Excel, Access & Word VBA work - expanding the functionality of spreadsheets and documents.
Something which can add a lot of efficiency to a process is connecting MS Office applications together - pulling email text into a spreadsheet or exporting MS Access data into Word docs for example.
