The company has conducted various assignments for clients to develop bespoke applications for their businesses. Such applications are undertaken using Microsoft Visual Basic and the inherent Jet engine database. Examples of work recently undertaken include a nightclub entry system, a touch-screen registered office board for a firm of accountants and a booking system for train trips.
The majority of today’s network applications require minimum network speeds of 100Mbps and benefit greatly by increasing to 1Gbps . As such it may be necessary to install a new cable infrastructure within your premises. Professional Link can arrange for a team of specialist to survey your premises and recommend accordingly.
Book keeping and Management Accounts
Having employees who are accountancy trained allows the company to offer services over and above that which you would normally expect from an information technology supplier. Professional Link carries out monthly assignments for a variety of clients ranging from pure book keeping and payroll to production of monthly management accounts.
