Institute Of Financial Planning Members Database
The task was to design and develop a new membership database
The IFP is the professional body for Financial Planners and Paraplanners. We were invited to design a new membership database for the IFP that would enable staff to work more efficiently on a day to day basis, managining activities such as billing, membership, course and event management, and search marketing functions. With valuable input and insights given by the IFP team, we were able to deliver a highly tailored solution that is now used to manage the large membership and candidate portfolio.
Steve Gazzard, Operations Director at the IFP said
“We have developed a close working relationship with PBC during the development of our member database and really value their diligent and supportive approach

Kingsborough Insurance Services
The task: to design and develop a new insurance management system based around a complex SQL Server 2005 database.
Andy Prince, IT Manager at Peverel Management said
“PBC Systems designed, developed and delivered both a Windows and Web based Insurance Management System within the agreed timescales. In the words of the project manager - The work has benefited the business in many ways. The main benefits being that the consolidation of 6 systems into 1 enhances the productivity of our employees and has reduced the reliance on our IT department as the business are able to manage the system themselves.“

The task: to automate, rationalize and redevelop a student management database
Chris Michelmore, Principal of Quest Guardians Commented
I contacted PBC Systems when it became clear that the current database was inadequate in meeting the needs of our growing and complex student business. The success of the new database is in large part due to the time and patience Peter Clements took into understanding our business and requirements, before he methodically developed a database that meets our needs. The result is that staff can handle an increased workload faster and with more accuracy, and at the same time keeping clients, schools, students and agents better informed. Thanks Pete!.

Mick Durham Wildlife Photographer
Mick Durham, the highly respected Scottish wildlife photographer needed a new website to showcase his work. Additionally Mick wanted to record details of his wildlife trips and daily work. We were invited to deliver the new website.
"I am delighted with the web site that PBC Systems designed for me. They listened to what I wanted, made some very useful suggestions and produced a site that allows me to add my images and diary content easily and effectively. The Wildlife Diary pages which they advised me to put in, are especially effective at scoring highly in search engines. I would highly recommend their work to any prospective customer.".
In late 2011 we were tasked with developing a complex Access 2007 database within strict timescales.
The Aqueduct Project Manager commented
"At the end of 2011 I employed Pete to develop a complex eco-project management database for a major client. Through an agile approach to the project, which included daily contact between us, Pete produced (in MS Access 2007 – the client’s requirement) a well-designed solution with very user-friendly input forms and pre-set report generation capability. Being inexperienced in MS Access, Pete was extremely helpful in explaining its capabilities and limitations to me which helped us deliver a powerful solution on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Pete and I look forward to working with him again in the future if the opportunity arises.".
