Crystal Clear Consulting
Excel and SQL solutions for Micros and SMEs.
Excel consultancy for Micros and SMEs. Ditch the paper with an accounting and invoicing spreadsheet or manage your stock or your clients more effectively with a bespoke Excel solution. Integrate with SQL databases, SAGE, or web based tools.
If you are facing a business challenge and you don't know the best way forward, a let me take a look and see if we can tech our way out of it. Stock management, production planning, CRM, job tracking and document production - you don't need to spend a fortune on bespoke software when you have Excel in house already.
With over 18 years of experience working in technical, business analyst and project management roles in IT, I love to bridge the gap between tech and real people – translating your business needs into bespoke, low cost solutions using the power of MS Excel. With many years experience working with MS SQL, the ability to interrogate your existing databases is also at hand and this data can be brought into Excel and manipulated easily to provide you with the business intelligence you need.
I work primarily with micros and SMEs in Somerset and Dorset who are starting out or are keen to grow.
Are you looking to grow your business but without a significant outlay on a piece of off the shelf software? The sheer range of systems available online these days means many hours of analysis of infinite variations of similar functionality, and it can be hard to prioritise your requirements or reach a compromise with what is being offered.
Using a low cost solution using MS Office applications that you already own means no big outlay on software and a bespoke approach to your business means you get exactly the solution you need, which will be fully customisable into the future as your business continues to grow.
Growing your business also means getting data together so you can understand what your strengths are and how to build on them. Together we can extract powerful data from your existing systems and use that to take your business to the next level.
