Chicago , officially the City of Chicago, is the third-most populous city in the United States. With over 2.7million residents, it is also the most populous city in both the state of Illinois and the Midwestern United States. It is the county seat of Cook County. The Chicago metropolitan area, often referred to as Chicagoland, has nearly 10million people and is the third-largest in the United States. Chicago has often been called a global architecture capital and is considered one of the most important business centers in the world. Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837 near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed and grew rapidly in the mid-nineteenth century. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which destroyed several square miles and left more than 100,000 homeless, the city made a concerted effort to rebuild on the damage. The construction boom accelerated population growth throughout the following decades, and by 1900 Chicago was one of the five largest cities in the world. During this period, Chicago made noted contributions to urban planning and zoning standards, new construction styles (including the Chicago School of architecture), the development of the City Beautiful Movement, and the eventual creation of the steel-framed skyscraper. Positioned along Lake Michigan, the city is an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation. O'Hare International Airport is the second-busiest airport in the world when measured by aircraft traffic; the region also has the largest number of U.S. highways and railroad freight. In 2012, Chicago was listed as an alpha global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network, and it ranked seventh in the world in the 2016 Global Cities Index. Chicago has the third-largest gross metropolitan product in the United Statesabout $640billion according to 2015 estimates. The city has one of the world's largest and most diversified economies, with no single industry employing more than 14% of the workforce. In 2016, Chicago hosted a record 54million domestic and international visitors, making it one of the most visited cities in the United States. Landmarks in the city include Millennium Park, Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile, the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum Campus, the Willis (Sears) Tower, the Museum of Science and Industry, and Lincoln Park Zoo. Chicago's culture includes the visual arts, novels, film, theater (especially improvisational comedy), and music, particularly jazz, blues, soul, hip-hop, gospel, and house music. There are many colleges and universities in the Chicago area, of which Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago are classified as "highest research" doctoral universities. Our clients in Chicago include Ferrara Candy Corporation. The Access database we've built for Ferrara tracks Overall Equipment Effectiveness and provides transparency to their candy production operations. This Access database uses a SQL Server data file on Ferrara Servers. All of the reports we've built for them (30) export seamlessly to excel for further analysis. We also work with Blake Law Firm in Chicago. We house their Access attorney Matter Tracking database on our server.

How Partnership Works
  • International Marine and Industrial Applicators
    International Marine and Industrial Applicators has an internal PHP / MySQL web application that needed upgrading to the most recent version of PHP and MySQL. We were the PHP consultant and MySQL Consultant chosen for this project

    As PHP Consultants, we performed a vulnerability test against the website and the database, determining where and how attacks might occurred. We upgraded both the PHP and MySQL to current versions and transitioned the hosting of this site to our servers.

    PHP Consulting along with MySQL development skills helped IMIA become more secure.

  • Nufarm Americas Inc.
    NuFarm is a pesticide chemical manufacturer that initially engaged us to build an Access Database to track Environmentl Protection Agency (EPA) forms. They have over 2,000 EPA forms on file with the US Government. We were the PHP developer and the MySQL developer for this project. Upon further conversation and discovering the intent of this chemical/pesticide client, we decided that an Access Database WAS NOT the proper solution. They desired people AROUND THE WORLD to enter and query their application. So we built this database using PHP web pages and a SQL Server data file. You may find more information about this application at www.data-blade.com

  • Bravo Wine Imports
    Bravo Imports Wine mostly from Italy and sells, through agents, to restaurants and markets including Kroger. This database application provides both a web page for entering orders as well as Quickbooks integration for creating invoices from those orders and updating current inventory and product lists. This is accomplished through an ODBC connection directly to Quickbooks. Agents and Items are managed through the Access database which communicates with the Website via MySQL connection (attached tables in the Access database). When Agents place orders, those order are viewed in the Access database, massaged and approved. Again through the use of attached MySQL tables. Bravo Wine is in Harrisonburg, Virginia. We provided the Microsoft Access help for this project
