insinbad's Professional Experience

2002 - Present

Software Developer

I am the lead developer working with two programmers. Having taken over the Datasoft Accounts system and customer base from Integrity Software, we developed a windows version for the DOS based Datasoft system. We developed a new product called Datapos as a replacement for all previous versions as well as developing into new areas.
For the first two years we developed mainly in Powerflex and Visual Dataflex (a graphical database language similar to Powerflex). However, our Datapos system is written in Delphi using Advantage DBMS. I have also developed handheld software in Visual Basic .Net to integrate with our main systems.
In the last 2 years I have been working on web extension for our software systems. Working mainly in PHP, again using Advantage Databases, we have developed a number of remote connectivity systems. The key product I designed, coded and implemented for the web was a secure document management system for a care home management company. This system handles the company’s document version control, standard form handling, shared and private documents, full access control and tracking.

I developed and supported accounts and business process software for a wide variety of business areas. Programming predominantly in Powerflex database language, I was part of a three person team developing modifications, expansions and connectivity to a standard Accounts system (Datasoft).
I worked with customers in diverse industries, from oil and food distribution to engineering, property and legal services. Some key projects I developed were milk quota management, food telesales, call management and handheld integration systems.
Though most of the development was in Powerflex we also wrote some of our external software in C, Visual Basic and Delphi.
