In addition to providing development and networking support services, Lively Consulting also has several applications available for quick installation. These include:
Online Forms and Reporting System - Just about every business collects data from a "form" which is completed by one of their clients. The forms take on many guises such as an Employment Application, New Patient Sign Up, or even a Student Advanced Placement Signup and payment. Regardless of the actual form the underlying basic requirement is that the data be collected in such a way that ad hoc reports can easily be built and run by non-programmer type personnel.
To this end, OFRS allows easy creation and publication of forms and ties this with a simple to use reporting system which can output your reports in MS Excel format.
Some examples of what the Online Forms System can do include:
Human Resources Applications
Insurance Sign Up
Training / Class sign up
Benefit Sign up
Interface with Customers
Gift Shop Purchases
Online Orders - eCommerce
"Pay for Play"
Accounts Receivable Reporting
Online Patient Signup - Web or Kiosk
Integration with your Practice Management Software
Time Entry / Management System - Looking for a time management system? Ours allows you to set project budgets, by hours or dollar amount, and track any number of project workers
who bill against it. It's a great way to keep projects on time and on budget.
We also recommend the following applications for use.
Mozilla FireFox - Firefox has set the new standards in browser security and standards compliance. I don't know how many times I've been asked what we do to keep the adware and malware infestations at bay. They cause serious downtime and lost profits just trying to keep your systems stable. So, after evaluating the top browsers in the marketplace we selected Firefox as our choice. Since our first installation we have yet to see one of those offending programs be installed. So, if you are tired of the constant deluge of adware and malware bringing your system to its knees just because your browsing the web, download and replace IE or Netscape with Firefox.
Macromedia Contribute - Macromedia has created a content management system that has gone beyond any custom built system I have seen. As a matter of fact we dumped our in house CMS in favor of Contribute. If your users can use MS Word and a browser, then they can use Contribute.
Lavasoft Ad Aware SE - Lavasoft has gone above and beyond in adware and malware removal. The current round of Anti-Virus tools, Internet Explorer Patches, and personal firewalls are getting trashed by the hordes of new attacks being released daily. Ad Aware SE is a free tool with regular updates that gives you the ability to detect and remove browser hijacks. Prior to installing FireFox, our development team saw an average of 100 malware programs being installed per DAY. To help combat this we utilized Ad Aware to keep our systems up and running.
