Job Tracking System

The prime purpose of the system was to record details of Standish Metal Treatment 'jobs'.

Prime areas of operation:

  • Storage and reporting of Paint Thickness Measurements

  • Production of Advice/Delivery notes

The system was written in Access 2003, and runs on a server to provide centralised access to the data throughout the organisation.

Client Comments:
I initially contacted Dennis to update an old Access 97 system. Dennis completed the work on time and well within budget but still more work was required to turn the old system into a workable database.

Following Dennis's recommendations we started afresh using access 2003 designing a new system far superior to the basic model and capable of much, much more. Explaining the step by step process of a shot blasting and painting operation is not very easy. Dennis soaked up the information, I cannot think of a time when I had to explain a process more than once. It isn't rocket science I know, but it can be pretty complicated at times; the dry film thickness formulas and relationships between coating application, times and climatic conditions etc. All have to be understood prior to programming.

Dennis set certain criteria for information to be entered correctly and added live 'popups' that total financial category data in real time, a real aid when ordering against budgets. The reports produced are brilliant, everyone at both Metal Cleaning UK and Standish Metal Treatment are very pleased with the results so far.

I say so far because I am continually asking Dennis for improvements which are done professionally, on time and to requirement. I cannot recommend him enough, fantastic service.

If you would like to contact me personally for a reference, you can use any of the contact emails or telephone numbers on the MCUK or SMT websites - Steve Brierley QA / H&S Manager.
