Hello, I'm Dave Dowling. I've been a software and database developer since 1992. I began programming FileMaker databases while running an auto parts business that I started around that same time. I tried QuickBooks, Peachtree, and a host of other off-the-shelf systems, but nothing I tried was flexible enough to suit my needs. I wanted to be able to customize a system to the way I ran my business, not the other way around. So I started developing my own database, and little by little, I improved the flow and stability of the system. After a few years of tweaking and a lot of studying, I had a finely tuned business tool that allowed me to run my business extremely efficiently! That solution is still in use every day by the folks who acquired my business, with very few modifications.
All the work I had done on my own database system taught me a great deal about relational database design. It also allowed me to discover what I really wanted to do: develop software solutions to help businesses save time and money. That's what I love to do, and I hope I will be able to do just that for you. I understand what it means to run a business, manage employees and inventory, track sales, pay bills and collect receivables. All of these operations are much easier to handle when you have a good business software solution.
