About Us

Welcome to SparkleDB, a specialized small business dedicated to providing expert database and web development services. With over 30 years of experience in database creation since our inception in 1993, we specialize in a wide range of platforms, including MS Access, SQL Server, MySQL, ColdFusion, and PHP. Our focus is to collaborate with clients to identify the most suitable IT solutions for their unique needs.

Our founder, Susan Kennedy, has been developing databases since the early days of FoxBase+ in 1987. Her extensive knowledge and expertise in Access, SQL Server, and ColdFusion are excellent. We pride ourselves on developing innovative applications, such as manufacturing inventory and barcode scanning, small school student and course tracking, and customizable shopping cart solutions.

At SparkleDB, we work with you to build the best solution for your business.

We had the privilege of collaborating with a global manufacturer with an international shipping network. Our engagement centered on designing and implementing a comprehensive Microsoft Access and SQL Server solution to accurately track their employees' time for payroll purposes, as well as monitor the material requirements for each production run and manage inventory levels. The successful implementation of this Access/SQL Server solution proved to be critical for the efficient functioning of the entire company, and was relied upon heavily by all stakeholders involved.

We had the opportunity to collaborate with a distinguished organization that housed a Welding School. During our engagement, we discovered that although they had already established a database, it had some underlying issues. Upon a thorough review of the database, we realized that the table structure needed to be modified. Once we made the necessary adjustments, we were able to successfully implement a new database solution that accurately tracked their students, their respective programs, attendance records, and progress towards graduation. This allowed the Welding School to function optimally and with great efficiency.

Susan is an incredible programmer who completed all of our custom VBA programming needs at a competitive price. We at Precision Welding Academy kept changing our needs during the process and she had no problem at all making our changes.
