I have been writing systems in various forms of Basic since 1983 the first 3 years were full time after which I moved into IT Management both general and Project. In the last 8 years I have resumed my programming activities culminating in the design and build of a full ERP system incorporating the MS Office engines for Word, Excel, and Outlook with MS Access for databases and running on the Windows platform. This is fully scaleable from a laptop to a multi location, multi organisation network. Since working with Odesk I have been doing projects to provide applications in Access and Outlook and have Project Managed a Web 2.0 build for an English University and have been recognised as one of the top 25 software providers on Odesk for July based on feedback. Outside Odesk I work as a freelance programmer, analyst, project manager, or business consultant depending on needs. I have opened two businesses and run them for 10 years and assisted in launching several others including management buyout's. I am a lateral thinker with a great breadth of industry knowledge that can be brought to bear on any systems design and build. With extensive skills in Project Management and Business Process Reengineering I am able to work in many disciplines. Gaining an MBA in March 2010 I am skilled in organisational structure and change supported by IT systems change, having an academic paper published in International Journal of Business, Management, and Social Sciences titled 'Why Information Technology (IT) systems-led organisational Change does not work' see -www.gbmintl.com/research This portfolio of skills gives me considerable knowledge of business processes and roles in many and varied industry sectors that I can bring to bear through a highly empathic approach which means I can offer advice and suggestions where improvement or a better approach can be deployed. During the last 10 years most of the programming work I have been contracted for involves building Apps or Addins for MS Outlook and Exchange, MS Access and Excel conversions and upgrades and also moves to MySQL or SQL Server Despite all of these skills, in this case I am principally looking for Visual Basic Programming or Office Integration work, Windows API work and document management within any business structure or system. Please note: I do NOT do fixed price work in Odesk

Bruce Kaffenberger Agency Contractor
I have designed and maintained hundreds of databases for a variety of businesses and orgaizations. I specialize in FileMaker development, having been a user since version 2.1 ( I currently employ versions 11, 12 and 13). I am experienced in designing databases for business, for both stand-alone and multi-user installations. For many businesses, I have designed a single database to replace the use of multiple programs that required duplication of data entry (as well as duplicating their labor cost). I customize my applications to your business and your style of working. My database designs often include document retrieval and Internet functionality. Your database can be strictly for in-house use, or accessible via the Internet. I have accumulated a broad experience in both hardware and software in over 3 decades within the computer industry. I have been self-employed since 1983, and understand the needs of a business owner and employer. I have worked with many different industries, including: medical / healthcare, retail, finance, non-profit, education, construction, and manufacturing. I have experience in understanding the various needs of these different organizations, and will perform the same for you and your business or organization.

The technicians employed web browsers to access a web-published database for a radiology group. The technicians created case records of the patients that the Radiologists diagnosed, and automatically produced reports for the Radiologists three times per day. The database was also accessed via the Internet by transcriptionists. On a monthly basis, an invoice for services performed was created automatically with a fully detailed log of each case. Patient Record Retrieval Developed for well-established surgical practice that maintained paper records and charts for their patients. Data imported from the medical billing application generated Patient records to expedite the search and retieval of decades of medical records. Magazine Subscription Manager Maintained subscription records for multiple magazines and newspapers published by a sports and cultural publisher. Generated reminders and reports of expiring subscriptions for marketing and billing. Service Company Manager Maintained customer records for a chimney sweeping company to store important details about each customer's account, including site surveys, services performed, future services, and service technician notes. Data was originally exported to Palm Pilot PDAs, and currently accessible by smartphone or tablet through Internet web publishing. The system also produces management and billing reports for the company, and links customer records to Internet mapping sites for directions to customer addresses.
