At TEI, over seventy percent of our professional staff have earned post-graduate technical degrees or MBAs. Our staff is current and proficient in technologies such as the latest versions of Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Reporting Services, and other premier software development products. Delivering efficient project development is important to us and our clients, so we make it a practice to use powerful project management tools, such as Microsoft Project, for planning and executing our project plans.
Because of our success in developing Internet-based systems with complex business rules and databases, we have carved out a niche for tackling hard-to-develop projects within tight budgets.
We make it a practice to have our developers and designers work closely with clients face-to-face at the client’s office. We believe a strong on-site presence gives clients the one-to-one contact with our project staff that always results in smoother, less costly development efforts and better systems. This open, direct, and in-person method of communication between project participants reduces the risk of overlooking small but important details.
Our in-person commitment continues through development into support and maintenance. Many of the systems we have developed for clients are still supported by our staff of full-time, experienced employees, with on-site visits when needed or requested.
TEI utilizes graphic designers and business analysts specifically to improve the look-and-feel and usability of all screens, resulting in intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces. Our approach is slightly different than other IT software development companies in that our full-time graphic designers are full participants in the design and testing phases of all projects. As a consequence, our websites have a crisp, professional looking appearance, as well as being easy-to-use, functional, and technically sound; and, since we use Microsoft Reporting Services, our reports are plentiful, straightforward, and easy to create, often reducing complex database structures into easy-to-understand reports.
