Integrate Access with Other programs



How Integration Works

  • Blue Ridge Products
    FTP integration with Access 2013. Blue Ridge creates orders and FTPs those orders to various warehouses including Amazon's warehouses to further process those orders. Blue Ridge is an import company that creates their own products, has them produced in China, imports those products to the United States and sells (mostly) through Amazon. This Access database is the central backbone for the company. It details all of the products, sales of those products, forecasts of the product sales, tracks current inventor levels etc. In addition to integrating with FTP software, this database has complex integration with Excel, both importing/massaging excel files as well as producing Excel files for both the company's internal personnel as well as the various warehouses used by the company. We provided the Microsoft Access training and documentation
  • Bravo Wine Imports
    Bravo Imports Wine mostly from Italy and sells, through agents, to restaurants and markets including Kroger. This database application provides both a web page for entering orders as well as Quickbooks integration for creating invoices from those orders and updating current inventory and product lists. This is accomplished through an ODBC connection directly to Quickbooks. Agents and Items are managed through the Access database which communicates with the Website via MySQL connection (attached tables in the Access database). When Agents place orders, those order are viewed in the Access database, massaged and approved. Again through the use of attached MySQL tables. Bravo Wine is in Harrisonburg, Virginia. We provided the Microsoft Access help for this project

Welcome to Data Control

We are a small group of expert Microsoft Access Database developers. We love Access and enjoy improving business processes through the databases we develop.

We started building databases back in 1998. Pepsi Bottling Group (now Pepsi International), Hercules Chemical, Crown Petroleum and Christian Children’s Fund were a few of our earliest clients.

Since then, we’ve programmed Access databases for the Air Force, the Army, Capital One, DuPont, Circuit City, GenWorth Financial, Suntrust, Verizon Wireless and many, many more companies.

Our clients are across the nation and include Nestle Beverage in California, Prairie Land Services in Wichita Kansas, Capital One auto finace in Texas and Hibernia bank in Louisiana. We’ve also built Access databases for ClementPappas Beverages in Fayetteville Arkansas, for Pepsi Bottling outside of New York, New York, and New World Pasta in St Louis Missouri. But it doesn’t stop there. We’ve built Access databases for CFA Financial in Greenville, South Carolina; built training tracking Access databases for Progress Energy in Raleigh North Carolina, and recently we’re working with ShermanHoward Law firm in Denver, Colorado. Still more! The Blake Horowitz Law Firm in Chicago, Illinois is our client and the Virginia Beach Fire department as well.

How and why do all these folks work with us? Well the why is because we are recognized across the nation as professional Microsoft Access Developers. Not only do we build professional databases with excellent naming conventions, coding practices, clean interfaces and professional reports, but we are excellent at communicating with clients, following up, debugging our work and more.

Over the past 20 years, we’ve also seen particular niches of database requests. It seems that environmental engineers (URS, Ensafe, Angler Environmental, France Environmental, Vulcan Material, and RockTenn Corporation) have a glaring need for Access databases. We also work with lots of quality managers for instance: Ball Corporation, Greystone Manufacturing, ClementPappas and more. Training tracking is yet another niche for the Access Experts at our firm. We’ve built training tracking databases for ClementPappas (again), Altria (parent company of Philip Morris), and Progress Energy (nuclear engineer training). We also see lots of demand from Mechanical Engineers including Fire Life Safety America, Hungerfoord Mechanical, and Chase Heating and Cooling. There’s also lots of demand for our services in the legal world. We count ShermanHoward, McGuireWoods (expert witness work), SandsAnderson, LeClairRyan, and many other firms as our clients.

Do you need a database that interacts with your accounting system? We integrate our databases with Timberline, Oracle, JD Edwards, SAP, Quickbooks, and Peachtree.

Do you need an Access database that imports / exports either .csv or Excel files? We’ve done lots of that too. Cleaning, scrubbing, and importing are all tasks we’ve gotten very good at doing.

Partnering with Data Control

About half of our business comes from strategic partners. We work with Network Engineering firms like ActivSupport (New York), Bear Technologies (Portland, OR), Fisk Information Technology (Pittsburgh), SyCom Technologies, and many more. We’ve also worked through Federal Contractors like ASCG, Goodwill, and MatlenSilver. Another group of folks partnering/subcontracting us is management consultants like Ritchie Consulting.

How does partnership work with us? Well first of all you should know that we take your client relationship very seriously and professionally. We will bring you into all conversations and protect your client relationship. We will work as transparently as you like, or you might hand a client off to us because you don’t wish to be a middle man and we’ll take great care of them for you (and take care of you as well!)
