Keyword – who we are and what we do
Keyword Software provides bespoke database management solutions for small businesses. We speak with you, establish your needs, and provide a database system that works the way you work. This includes system design, database building, automation, security and network integration. Having developed your database management system we handle data migration, staff training and ongoing client support.
The database program we use is Sesame, from Lantica Software. See below for more information about Sesame.
Sesame allows us to create a completely bespoke database, so you and your staff don’t have to adapt your tried and tested working practices. With off-the shelf packages – even ones designed for your specific industry – you have to adapt to a database manager designed for the average customer.
We have partners who can provide additional services such as web integration, remote computing, network support, and workflow add-ons allowing your database to work with other software. Remote working provides opportunity to provide support for all clients, international as well as UK. Keyword is based in Ascot, Berkshire.
We also undertake the conversion of Symantec Q&A databases to Sesame. Having worked with Q&A for many years we know the product inside-out, and can produce a first-class Sesame database system for you which not only provides an up to date interface and the features you’ve come to expect from modern software but keeps all your data and reports and retains a familiar look and feel.
The principal is Alec Mulvey. Alec has 27 years experience of database development. Up to 2003 this was using Symantec’s Q&A database manager. Since its launch in 2004 Sesame has become the preferred software program for our clients.
There is a successful international community of Sesame developers, sales people and customers, particularly in the USA where Lantica Software is based. Alec works closely with Sesame consultants in the USA.
Our clients are mainly small businesses with 6-15 PCs but also include single users and business owners operating from a home office. Our clients operate in a wide variety of disciplines.
