Bespoke Databases

Excellent database design requires experience and knowledge to produce a solution that integrates with your business. That's why at Point100, we draw on our collective expertise spanning over 25 years to produce bespoke databases that meet all of your requirements.

What are the advantages of bespoke databases?

Data is the lifeblood of your business. As a minimum it stores extensive information about your clients and products. Having a bespoke database system that fits your precise and specific business needs will enhance your ability to smoothly run an efficient, profitable business. Any bespoke software applications that you may build or software development that you might need to implement for your business requirement will happen more quickly and with less stress, hassle and cost if the existing database fully matches your specific business model. This is where bespoke databases come in.

A simple example could be if a customer database uses account numbers that consist of 3 sets of identifiers which give immediate useful information about the client. A non bespoke database may not be able to easily handle a 3-part account numbering system. This example is merely the tip of the iceberg – as you delve more deeply into your specific data, there will be many areas where having an expertly designed bespoke database structure can make a real difference. It doesn't need to be repeated that reporting insights are what give you the power to make quick and correct decisions. The quality of your reports is directly proportional to the close fit of the database to your particular business.

The 80 20 rule really comes into play here.

It is possible to buy off the shelf software that will include a pre-built database. More than likely, it will provide you with 80% of your specific requirements. However, the remaining mismatched 20% will be the primary source of 80% of problems.

Don't settle for out of the box solutions.

A tailor-made database can make a positive impact on your business processes using technology to organise information and create key insights.

How can Point100 help me?

Point100 has extensive knowledge in the field of designing and building bespoke databases. Our teams include experts of many years' experience that have the know-how to design the database structure from the ground up. This means that besides being useful for the present business requirement, the database will also be able to grow with the business without forcing extensive and expensive changes.

As an example of our work, one of our clients required the ability for their team to easily and quickly set up promotions on their website to enhance sales. An enormous amount of flexibility was required. For instance, they needed to be able to start and stop a promotion from their own computers in the future, set promotions that would stop automatically once stock reached a certain level, and launch promotions that would last just an hour or so. In addition, they needed total flexibility in creating the types of promotion. This could include which products to promote, whether to provide a percentage discount, allow an item free based on a minimum purchase, and so on. The possibilities were almost endless, and this could only have been achieved with a supremely skilled bespoke database design.

We at Point100 pride ourselves on our close communication and contact with our clients. There are team members that will spend as much time as is necessary with our clients to fully understand your requirements. Once the specification has been properly and extensively captured, we have the skills to convert that detailed information into 'technical speak' so that the developers have a robust understanding and are able to develop the bespoke database accordingly. Our clients that enjoy being involved at the deep technical end of the work may do so too. We generally use the Agile methodology for development and our clients are welcome to join the meetings whenever they feel like doing so.
