Programming and Testing

Utilizing the latest development tools, as well as purchased third party routines, DSS can develop a user-friendly system that mirrors your operational policies. We have an innovative approach to testing which means you get a tight product right from the start.


If the system will be accessed by a wide group of users, we have the ability to limit the use of Main Menu icons and specified buttons, as well as provide read/write and read only privileges to select screens.


All systems developed by DSS automatically include system documentation. In the unlikely event that an alternate programming group will support the system in the future, this will get them up and running in the shortest period of time. We also offer optional on-line user documentation, which is strategically linked to each of the input screens.

Data Conversion

In the instances where you have an existing system containing valuable data, DSS can formulate a cost-effective plan to migrate information from the old system to the new. Included will be a complete set of audit reports.

Linking to Web Sites

Utilizing the services of a web developer, DSS can make all or just part of your data available on the Internet.

Upsizing to SQL

If the size of your data files reaches a threshold were straight Access™ is no longer an effective tool, the backend of the system can be upgraded to Microsoft SQL™. Initial design will keep the required changes to a minimum.

System Prototyping

If your long-term goal is to have the ultimate system in SQL™ or Oracle™, DSS can do Phase I design and development. Since Access™ offers tools that make changes economical, the system can be completed before the Phase II development team starts their design and coding efforts.
