What Are Your Options?

There are two options we can offer you: building a new system, or fixing and supporting an existing one depending (on what technology it is built in). In addition to creating new systems, we frequently take over systems where the original developer has left the company, retired, gone out of business or has become “uncontactable”.

Our Web or Intranet systems can be hosted either on your dedicated server, one of our servers, or in the cloud. We will advise you on the benefits and problems with each approach during our discussions.

Our primary technologies for online / intranet / cloud solutions are ASP.NET, MS SQL and MS Azure.

How We Understand What You Want

The first step is to discuss exactly what you want to do, either face to face or remotely. We like to see your current system and way of working. Once you are comfortable with our understanding, we will propose the various technical options available, with the advantages and disadvantages of each.

The next step is to give you a quotation for each of the possible options. In this we will describe how the system will work, screen by screen, as well as the overall process.

You Get a Fixed Price with No Surprises

We will give you a fixed price, so you can be sure of what your investment will be before starting, with no surprises later on. This will also make it easy for you to calculate the return on investment, before the project starts.

We are always available to discuss the quotation further to make sure you are comfortable and understand the proposed work.

How to Build What You Asked For

Once you have signed off the work, we will work closely with you. This includes creating a Statement of Works document that helps to iron out any smaller issues that are not covered in the quotation. The developer will make direct contact with you to talk through the project and make sure they understand completely what your overall aims are, as well as the details of the screens and processes.

At all times the developer will keep you up to date with progress, and send through screens for your approval and discussion.

How Will Your Company Start Using It?

When the project is delivered, you will get training on how it works and be able to start testing it. As you do this and give us your feedback we will resolve any issues.

When you are happy with the system we will move your existing data over to the new system.

How We Support You

Once you have signed off the project, you get one month’s free support. This is by phone and email and we use remote access software to allow us to sort out issues on your machines very quickly. After the initial month you can choose to have a support and maintenance contract, or just call on us when you need any changes made.

How Long Will the Project Take?

The lead time between ordering a new system and getting it installed varies from project to project, but for the small projects it can be measured in weeks, and the longer ones in months.

What You Need to Do

It’s really important that you put aside the time for the new implementation. This means responding to our requests for clarification and testing the system. We aim for the testing and implementation of the new system to take up as little of you and your staff’s time as possible. We’ll advise you on the best approach to split the work into manageable chunks, if necessary, and how to make sure the system goes live without any disruption to your business.

Will It Integrate with My Other Systems?

Your new system will be able to interface with your existing systems; such as accounts or bespoke system, providing they allow it. There are usually several ways to connect to any system, and we will give you all the available options, and their prices, so you can make your decision based on the return on investment.

The system can connect to MS SQL and MS Azure databases.

Have We Done Something Similar Before?

Fruitful has 15 years of experience developing software, so it’s very likely. As a result of this experience we have built our SNAP-Suite of software modules that can be ‘snapped’ together to quickly create the core of a system.

If we have one or more modules that cover what you need, they can be used in your project. Please contact us to see what is ready to be used for your project.

How to Make Sure Your Staff Use the System

We believe the best way for this to happen is to provide a system that is easy to use, intuitive and quick. This will save them time and make their days easier.

There are two ways to ensure that a database runs quickly – good design and the right technology. Your database will use all the best practices to achieve the fastest speeds and where a different technology will deliver substantial benefits, we will offer it as an option.
