Our Services

Software Consultancy
Acton Gate Systems offer a professional software consultancy service. Our philosophy is to understand what is important to each client, recognising that all companies differ in terms of their culture and priorities. We work closely alongside clients, assisting them to identify profit improvement opportunities and build the business case for change, to develop and deliver an appropriate, cost effective IT strategy. Before we start we’ll agree the project deliverables and give you a clear indication of costs, usually a fixed price.

Even a small amount of high-quality advice can deliver big benefits to a software project or a business. A skeptical view of consultants is that they ‘borrow your watch to tell you the time’, but our customers feel that we really do add value, and most would say that they view us as an extension of the team.

FoxPro\VFP Development
We specialise in software development using Microsoft© Visual FoxPro. We have over 15 years of experience in successfully developing, upgrading, rewriting and supporting FoxPro systems. We are able to offer a software development service tailored to the specific requirements of your business such as order tracking and process solutions, production and stock control systems, sales analysis tools and ecommerce and internet applications.

In addition to new system design, development and maintenance, we are also able to help with your existing systems. Often we are asked to work with tools that have been developed in-house in Excel, Microsoft Access or even completely bespoke code.

Data Conversion
We also offer data conversion services, both on a one-off basis, or by developing applications to automate the process for you. This is commonly a requirement where systems have been built in-house and the original developer has left the company, requiring the existing data to be migrated to a new platform.

We are able to offer this service across a range of formats such as MS Access, SQL, MySQL and FoxPro, converting and migrating data, indexes, foreign keys, primary keys, default value, auto increment fields, and tables from one platform to another between different databases.

Pegasus Development
Acton Gate Systems are also an Authorised Pegasus Development Partner. Our developers have been creating add-on solutions for Opera, Opera II and now Opera 3 Since 1995. Our Pegasus solutions cover a wide range, from simple form changes, to full add-on systems that are totally integrated within Pegasus, retaining the same familiar look and feel as the original software. We have provided solutions to 100’s of satisfied Opera users.

Support
We understand the importance of reliable support. Our use of Remote Access support tools combined with our in-house support-ticket system, enables us to offer responsive and effective on-going support to our customers, regardless of location. In addition to support for our own software and products, we also offer a range of support services for existing systems. These include Telephone Support, Annual Maintenance Contracts, On-site support and Repairs.

Hardware and Software Solutions
We also offer a complete hardware and solution service and can supply and configure equipment such as servers, workstations and printers. We also have partnerships with many of the leading suppliers of essential business tools such as Microsoft Office 365, Antivirus and security software, and Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery Solutions.
