Visual FoxPro Support and Migration Services

Expert FoxPro Programmers

Since 1994, we've coded and supported VFP apps for hundreds of clients around the world.

Has your company outgrown your custom FoxPro application, and you need to migrate it to a platform that's still supported?

Or maybe you've got this great custom VFP application that's served you well for years. From your viewpoint, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" Now you need to make some updates, but your programmer is nowhere to be found.

Still running an old FoxPro DOS application, but realize the hardware it's running on won't last forever? Maybe you're not sure how to move it to a more recent Windows version.

Where can you turn for assistance? Surfing the internet to find competent Visual FoxPro Programmers who know what they're doing can be a real challenge. Whether you're looking for someone to provide VFP programming support for an existing application--or even if you'd prefer to do-it-yourself (but need a little guidance now and then) check us out! When you need Visual Fox Pro programmers who can develop robust, user-friendly database applications, design FoxPro 9 reports, trigger FoxPro events, upload files to SQL using Visual FoxPro--you've come to the right place!

So contact us to discuss your project. There's no charge for the initial consultation.

Looking for someone closer to home?
When it comes to installing and supporting computer hardware, it makes sense to hire local professionals. 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 running your application and supporting your VFP software, you have more options. With high speed broadband connectivity, 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 served customers from California to New York, from Washington State to London, England. Many have never met us in person—but are extremely pleased with our service, work ethic and attention to detail.

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

A Reputable Company

It's easy to build a web site and hang out an electronic shingle. Just about anybody can do it. So 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.

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?

Our FoxPro programmers have been developing software apps for years, 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.

For example:

  • 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.
  • Tired of rekeying data into your order entry system, and then again into Quickbooks or Peachtree? Talk to one of our programmers for ideas on how to tackle this problem. 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.
