FoxPro is a powerful tool to manage your company's data. How can you be sure that the VFP programmers you choose really know what they're doing?

You've got this great custom VFP application that's served you well for years.  Now you need to make some updates, but your programmer is nowhere to be found.  Or maybe you're still running an old Foxpro DOS application, but realize the hardware it's running on won't last forever.  And you're not sure how to move it to a more recent Windows version.

Has your company outgrown your custom Foxpro application, and now you need to migrate it to SQL Server or MySQL? Or perhaps you dabble in VFP programming from time to time, but need a little help and guidance every now and then.

Where do you turn for help?  Surfing the internet to find competent Visual Foxpro Programmers can be a daunting challenge. 

Whether you're looking for someone to develop a new Visual Fox Pro application, or provide VFP programming support for an existing one--or even if you'd prefer to do-it-yourself (but need a little help now and then) check us out!

Looking for someone closer to home?

When it comes to installing and supporting computer hardware, it makes sense to hire local talent.  For PC's, servers and printers, you need a reputable company who can dispatch support technicians quickly to meet your hardware needs.

But when it comes to computer software, you have more options.  With high speed internet connections (this office uses a T1 line), you'll be pleased to discover that you'll get the same great service and programming support whether we're two miles or 2,000 miles from your office.  

We've helped customers from California to New York, from Florida to Washington State.  Most of them have never met us in person—but are extremely pleased with our service, work ethic and attention to detail.

However, if  you'd still prefer a personal visit, we can accommodate your request for onsite visits as well.


How can you be sure you're working with a reputable company?

Considering how easy it is to build a web site and hang out an electronic shingle, how can you be confident that the software development company you choose will meet your needs today--and tomorrow--at a fair price?  That's a valid concern, especially if you're hundreds, even thousands of miles away.
   
I/O Technologies, Inc. BBB Business Review
First, be sure to ask for references from any programming shop you're thinking about working with.  And then, call those references!

Second, find out how long the FoxPro developer has been in business.  Most companies fail before they reach their fifth birthday.  It's true that past performance doesn't guarantee future results.  But all things being equal, wouldn't you rather work with FoxPro programmers who have been around the block a few times, rather than someone who may be hearing about your issue for the first time?

Since 1994, our FoxPro programmers have been developing software apps, starting with FoxPro for DOS--and have continued to upgrade our skill sets as FoxPro evolved to version 9.0. We take full advantage of VFP's object-oriented programming capabilities wherever possible. This software enables us to write custom software that's tailored to meet our clients specific needs. Here are a few examples:



Our FoxPro developers build electronic bridges so clients can move business data securely and accurately between different systems, at minimal cost. If you manually transfer data--either internally or with outside vendors, we can save you time!

For example, we've written a FoxPro interface for a bank, allowing them to automatically request flood certifications.  Previously, they manually sent faxes, waited for fax responses and then manually entered data into their system. Our interface improved their productivity immediately.



If you're tired of rekeying data into your order entry system, and then again into Quickbooks or Peachtree, we can help! 

For example,we wrote a Quickbooks interface for a franchise which allows them to create new customer records and invoices in their VFP system, and then automatically post the updates into Quickbooks with the touch of a button.



We develop user-friendly data entry systems that make intelligent use of radio buttons, dropdown lists, auto-prefilling textboxes, and date lookup features. We realize that many users want to navigate using their mouse.  But faster typists prefer keeping their fingers on the keyboard. No matter which type of user you are, we can build data entry forms that best meet your people's needs.

For example,
we wrote a system that allows data entry clerks to enter incoming orders very rapidly--automatically printing out work tickets without requiring users to take their hands off the keyboard or issue extra commands.



We take advantage of today's technologies to reduce errors and speed data collection. If you'd like to automate your inventory-tracking processes, by all means contact us! We've developed barcode applications which are totally event driven. Unlike keyboard wedge systems, which do little more than fool your computer into thinking that the input is coming from the keyboard, our applications respond to scans from different sources.

For example, a user could scan his ID badge, then scan several inventory items, and finally scan a customer barcode. We program our systems to identify these events in order to track who used which part(s) for which customer.  Imagine how this could simplify your inventory management and billing systems!
