Custom Relational Database Development

Consolidating various customer information data sources into a holistic view is not a trivial exercise - experience counts. Thanks to our deep foundation of consolidating consumer/contact data sources, AXIS applies a proven framework that delivers what you need, fast.

Cleansing and matching is our primary focus and a core competency so you don’t have to worry about whether or not we can get the job done. We can isolate issues of over or under-matching, balance word and pattern table entries to maximize corrections while minimizing cascading anomalies and handle addressing challenges for SERP (ex. our client Canada Post Corporation). The end result is always a sustainable consumer-centric database that performs to the highest standard.

A few ways in which we can capture useful data for your business includes using:

  • consumer survey forms
  • employee survey forms
  • product order forms
  • and more...

AXIS designs client databases with you. Through our data discovery exercise, baseline match exercise and business requirements analysis, we identify your data structures and include your privacy policies as well as marketing campaign needs. Then we apply a best-practices approach for customer data capture, structure and management.

AXIS ensures that the database design puts you in full control of all query, analysis and reporting. We deliver a detailed database schema that captures necessary data structures and table relationships (ERD) to ensure your data management requirements are met. We design a secure and intelligent SQL database that employs our methodology to deliver on time and on budget and fulfill all your needs.

The change detection and entity (Household/ Individual/ Company/ Site/ Contact) Key Continuity Management (KCM) processes are always considered when we develop the design and logical data model. We build in a full examination, design and automation of procedures required to conduct daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly updates of defined source system files.
