Talk about a dedicated customer.... Meet Andrew Owen from Atlantic Mooring Limited. Mr. Owen's business is based in Bermuda and he traveled 1,721 miles to work with the Microsoft Access Experts at Winning Solutions, Inc. Today the temperature in Bermuda is 68 degrees, while the temperature in Iowa is 19 degrees. There is no snow in Bermuda, but a huge pre-Christmas snow storm just dumped a foot of snow on the Winning Solutions, Inc. office in Ames, Iowa.
As the name implies, Atlantic Mooring Limited provides full service care and installation of boat moorings to boat owners in Bermuda. In addition, the company also offers barge services and is a commercial diving company.
If you think it is amazing that Mr. Owen would make such a journey when he could get his Access database work done anywhere in the world, we are also amazed and honored that he chose Winning Solutions, Inc. What's more, this isn't the first time Mr. Owen has been to Iowa in the middle of winter to collaborate with WSI on the Access database that is critical to his company's operations. In 2010, he also made the same journey.
A colleague of Mr. Owen's suggested Microsoft Access as an ideal platform on which to build his company's business management database. After researching what was involved in building such a database on his own, Mr. Owen decided it would be a better use of his time to focus on his business while someone else did the programming. Some more research on the Internet lead him to the Winning Solutions, Inc. website and the rest is history.
Winning Solutions, Inc. developed a custom Microsoft Access database for Atlantic Mooring that allows them to manage their mooring services business from the time a prospect calls them, through estimating, installation and ongoing maintenance processes. With thousands of boat moorings in Bermuda, there is a lot to keep track of.
During the 2012 winter work session with Atlantic Mooring, WSI restructured the ordering process and added GPS routing capability.
WSI rarely has the pleasure of working face-to-face with clients, so it was really nice to have Mr. Owen in the office to work directly with the Winning Solutions, Inc. Microsoft Access Programming Team. All current and future clients should be aware that they have the option to travel to Ames, Iowa and work directly with the WSI team.
