AccessFreak Website (Visual Basic / ASP / SQL Server)
Since 1997, Phoenix Consultants Group has developed websites and applications to harness the power of the "net". Developing the web application to manage hundreds of Microsoft Access Developers was, and continues to be, a real challenge. When PCG acquired the "Ms. Access Freak" (MAF) site in 1999, we rewrote the entire MAF website in order to facilitate ease of utilization by developers in search of MS Access information. PCG has achieved its main goal for the MAF site, and we proudly continue to supervise and maintain the longest-running Access Help Database on the internet.
This robust web application, written in HTML and ASP, processes over 20,000 hits per day on the SQL Server database. We are consistently searching and locating the collection of helpful tips and programming information sought by Microsoft Access developers. Being completely database-driven, the site allows us to quickly view information, write articles for the developer community, and help our users find the answers to inquiries, enabling them to complete their projects "on time" and "on budget."
Financial Management / Inventory Control System
Created a reporting engine for major financial accounting software and inventory control systems for a networking equipment supplier.
Book Management System (Visual Basic / SQL Server)
The combined corporate entity is a CD-ROM and Data Warehouse supplying concrete information in dictionary-style volumes, as well as CD-ROM production of important technical and industrial research information. Providing Y2K compliance integration required for the administration and production of five major book sets generating over 70% of revenue generation provided Phoenix Consultants Group with a means to show their mettle. PCG designed a single interface to dynamically generate forms and administrative processes for all 5 books.
Our product included a Y2K deadline Book Management Application, which managed five large publications (2.5 million records total) with a single user interface in a 3 Tier Architecture model. We integrated Enterprise servers, VB6, SQL Server 7.0 and Oracle utilizing ADO 2.0/2.1 to manage and supervise the eleven onsite and two off-site international developers, analysts and testing managers. We developed analysis, design, composition, and implementation models for user requirements documents, program specifications, management reports and project plans within this application. Extensive conversion of four database systems involving over 1,500 tables into two database structures was also required, and built into the system at minimal additional expense. Application specifications included data entry capability with multiple users at various US sites, Reports engine, Bulk Mailing engine, Security Engine, Forms Management Engine, and additional custom controls created, integrated, and tested to rigorous standards prior to the Y2K deadline.
Phoenix was proud to be a part of the Y2K success for these partners. Providing quality products with robust designs is what enables PCG to be a leader in today's marketplace.
