A private software consulting firm specializing in Microsoft Access consulting and database development. We can help with consulting, programming, support, troubleshooting, training, conversion or general advice. We also sell low cost sample Access databases, templates and products.
Here at RPT Software we like to keep things simple when it comes to pricing. We build fixed price quotes for most projects (using a flat $90/hour fee for all activities). Deposits are never required. Normal process is as follows:
1. Initial Consultation Download Data Gathering Form
After you contact us we have an initial consultation where we meet and greet each other and talk about what you need, who’s involved etc…. Use the data gathering form to speed up the initial consultation and data gathering.
2. Prepare Quote and Specification documents (Functional and Technical)
Depending on the size of the project and how well the customer knows what they want the amount of time to build the quote can vary. We prefer accurate quotes so we take the time up front to understand your needs. The quote and specifications are signed off by the customer.
Based on the specifications done in step #2 the solution is built. We do numerous reviews with the customer and fine tune the solution during this process. If desired a prototype can be created before the brunt of the programming is started.
We always test as we build functionality, but at the end we perform final testing and ask for your help to test the solution.
5. Final Review
We do a final review of the application with the customer. The invoice is sent after the final review.
If you want us to help train your people on the application we will be more than happy to, at this point the main contact people are usually already trained because of the numerous reviews we had while the application was being built.
We support the application free for one year.
After paying for the solution you will have access to all source code and can modify the solution. Any bugs found in the solution are fixed free of charge.
For small projects or if the customer asks we will just provide services at a flat $90/hour fee. Also for non-profit organizations we have been known to negotiate reduced rates.
