Custom Client/Server Development

Butterflyvista Corporation, is a Microsoft Silver Certified Application Development Partner and leading consulting firm that architects and delivers the right solution for you.

Many people associate client/server computing as a thing of the past or software that big companies use, however that is not true. Client/Server computing in many ways is not that dissimilar from cloud computing. You have centralized storage and processing with clients connecting in various forms. There is also the admin component, which management can use to set up various pieces of information, view reports, and do other tasks.

We completed a client/server recently for a small company, which has a few employees but produces circuit boards. These circuit boards need stamping to place the serial number and other personalization information. The software used is a client/server one, even though the company is small and nobody would think of that software as client/server based, but it was.

People associate client/server with mainframes, but all client/server really is in a nutshell is the server component running on one computer, usually as a service, with client computers (desktops, mobile devices, or tablets) connecting to the server to perform the task. In the stamping project, the operating system on all computers was various flavors of Microsoft Windows.

Do you want a client/server based solution? If so, we can help you just as easily. Contact us and let us help. We will sit down with you to discuss your needs and help craft a solution that is right for you. There are many choices available. We will narrow the choices down for you to give you exactly what your project needs. That is unless you already know. We can do as little or as much as needed by the project.

All of our solutions strive to not only meet your expectations, but exceed them. Our company has origins not as coders and programmers, but as architects and engineering. We see the entire picture, but not only are not afraid, but look forward to, getting down to the nitty-gritty details.

Butterflyvista is not a new kid on the block and neither are we a group of elementary school students. We have collective knowledge dating back to Windows 2.0 and the Windows 2.0 SDK. We migrated and embraced the various technologies of the different eras. We pass that collective knowledge to you.

We want you to be an active partner in the development process. We will sit down with you and develop a software requirements document and optionally a wireframe sketching things out. We will keep you posted. You can be involved in as little or as much as you like. We are here to help.

Our approach has always been to create flexible code that meets your needs today and into the future, while delivering as bug free code as possible. We strive to document our source code and format our source code using industry standards. Butterflyvista is also versed in CMMI and other development methodologies, such as Six Sigma and others.
