Bulwell Community Toy Library
Bulwell Toy Library commissioned us to develop a membership, toy and play session system capable or recording their members and activities. There were 2 key goal for this system, firstly to be able to provide usage figures required by their funding bodies (they are a registered charity) and more excitingly the system analyses a number of key areas and suggests ‘connections’ between members, allowing Bulwell Toy Library to put children of similar backgrounds, interest or other factors in touch.“Our new database is just what we needed to make sense of our expanding services and information requirements. Justin created a flexible system that works with us and throughout he has supported us patiently and made sure it adapts to our needs if they change.” Steve Parkinson, Founder

Since it’s introduction we have also developed a portal for their fitters to view job details 24/7 and update job progress.
