Partnering with Data Control

We've been partnering with professionals for 15 years.

Why do these folks partner with us to help their clients?

  • Their client needs a professional Access database built or fixed
  • They want to be a resource to their client
  • They don't want their competition supplying a resource to their client
  • We respect their client relationship
  • We don't discuss pricing with their client
  • We suggest a 25 - 50% margin on our services
  • But most of all, they trust us

How partnering works:

  1. You ask us to conference call with your client to begin discovering the work necessary.
  2. We provide you a scope of work to accomplish the project. We provide you our price and we suggest your price to the client
  3. You get client approval and decide if you want to subcontract us or refer us
  4. We keep you in the loop during development
  5. If we are subcontracted, we send you monthly invoices to forward to the client on your letterhead
  6. If you referred us, we send you monthly find fee checks

About half of our business comes from strategic partners. We work with Network Engineering firms like ActivSupport (New York), Bear Technologies (Portland, OR), Fisk Information Technology (Pittsburgh), SyCom Technologies, and many more. We’ve also worked through Federal Contractors like ASCG, Goodwill, and MatlenSilver. Another group of folks partnering/subcontracting us is management consultants like Ritchie Consulting.

How does partnership work with us? Well first of all you should know that we take your client relationship very seriously and professionally. We will bring you into all conversations and protect your client relationship. We will work as transparently as you like, or you might hand a client off to us because you don’t wish to be a middle man and we’ll take great care of them for you (and take care of you as well!)

Project Description

International Marine and Industrial Applicators Virginia Beach, Virginia 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. Raleigh, North Carolina 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
