Custom Programming

Creating database-centric website and desktop applications to maximize your business opportunities


Custom Solutions Make Full Use of Your Investment

Microsoft Windows and the Macintosh has been designed to insulate people from the technical complexities characteristic of computing, making it possible for them to concentrate on the task they need to get done - not on the tool they're using to do it. It's intuitive user-interface and consistent commands allow people to get up to speed on virtually any application they need to use.

And now, with Diakonia's custom database solutions, people can extend their reach into other areas that contain their organization's collective body of information. Our goal is to make it easier for you to make the decisions you need to stay a step ahead - by having the information you need, when you need it, wherever you are.

“I had used my computer for over four years to compile management statistical information. It took me three full days to generate these graphs using my computer. Although my final product looked impressive, I was spending too much time generating the information. What used to take me most of a week to complete, Diakonia's custom software does in minutes! I now spend more time getting new business, and talking to customers, not doing tedious paperwork.”

Diakonia approaches software and website design with the same design philosophy that characterizes the Graphic User-Interface operating systems. The goal is to allow users to work directly and intuitively with the information they need, whether it resides locally, on a network, on a departmental computer or on a remote host. Our desire is to inspire creative decision making and timely problem solving by providing superior, consistent tools for accessing, enhancing, and sharing information, regardless of it's location.

Integrating Data With Other Computer Systems

As your company grows, you often find yourself inundated with data - from many sources. The challenge you face is turning this incredible quantity of data into the type of quality information you need to make informed, timely, and accurate decisions.

“When I start working on my customer satisfaction reports, I first use the "download" feature of my custom software package by Diakonia. It automatically transfers all of the information I need from our other computer system so that all Ihave to do is call customers and track their information.”

Cost Effective Solutions

As software engineers, we recognize that it is not enough for a solution to simply be effective, it must be cost effective. Custom solutions that work the way you work, and can change with your needs, will save immeasurable time and increase your job satisfaction. Although a custom program frequently has a higher initial cost than it's off-the-shelf counterpart, it results in software that really does pay for itself, many times over.

Custom software can also integrate your information with the other applications you already know and use including: word processing software for form letters, spreadsheet software for charting and analyzing numerical data, and editing and collecting images. Imagine how easy it would be to work all in one custom and easy to use application that is custom tailored for the way you do business.
