The flexible organization of J.P.Peach & Associates allows us to offer a
wide range of services at a significant cost savings compared to other software companies. We
are a collection of independent contractors and keep our overhead cost low by not maintaining
a bricks-and-mortar location.
J.P.Peach & Associates can provide development and support for applications
in the Windows environment, PalmOS and internet-based applications. We have been developing
customized applications for IBM compatible computers since the early days of DOS and have
extensive experience with all versions of Windows. While we have developed a large number of
general purpose applications, we also specialize in database, data collection and engineering
analysis applications. The choice of programming languages can have a significant effect on
the cost and functionality of an application. We can develop or modify your existing programs
using C++, Java, FORTRAN, Visual Basic, SQL, ODBC, DAO, ADO. If you do not need an entire
application but require an ActiveX or dll to increase the functionality of your application,
we can do that too.
There has been a recent boom in the use of personal digital assistants (PDAs)
and J.P.Peach & Associates has kept pace. We can develop customized applications that will
run on your PalmOS or WinCE-based PDA. These devices are more then just a replacement for your old paper
appointment book. They have a powerful processor inside them and a sophisticated programming
language that allows them to do most things that your desktop computer can do. With customized
applications and conduits we can integrate PDAs into your corporate databases and network.
In 1997 we expanded our services to include web design and development. Projects can
be as small as a couple of static web pages. We
can also develop sophisticated cgi scripts to manage your databases and provide the front and back-end
for large corporate web sites or even portals. In addition to designing the "corporate look" and graphics
for your site we can also write scripts that would allow users to log-into your site and search databases
for information that is of interest to them. If you need more functionality then what HTML and
is a full-service web design and development company because we also provide hosting and maintenance
services. In addition, we do not use HTML code generators because they produce a poor quality HTML page
that is slow to download and difficult to change. We code all of our HTML by hand for increased speed
and performance on any browser.
Designing images for the web is a special skill and we have the talent. Simply scanning
an image and putting it on a web site often leads to poor results. The artist needs to adjust the colors,
resolution, contrast and much more in order to create an image that will render properly on the wide variety of
browsers and platforms that are being used. The design team can do more than web based graphics. Our
graphic artist can develop animations, corporate themes, brochure layouts and posters and logo designs.
Our company and web hosting are built on flexibility. Over the years
we have used a large number of web hosting services, from the cheap to the expensive, and have never been really
happy with any of them. They forced us into a "hosting package" that never really fit our client's
needs. So, we decided to set up our own server so that we can have full control over it. If you want to
host your site with us we will customize the services and software to fit your needs. We have "hosting packages"
but they are only a starting point, we will customize the hosting services to meet your specific needs.
