With a methodical approach, we helped the client in VB/MS Access/Oracle development by developing Microsoft Access 2007 Applications using DAO 2. We also wrote technical and user documentation for a smooth flow of the project.  

Moving ahead, we also developed Oracle databases, SQL/PLSQL scripts for Oracle database objects and did Microsoft VB.Net development successfully. Microsoft SharePoint development was also done, as and when it was needed. V Group’s support assisted in managing the scope as per the project requirement, as we kept on updating ourselves in line with the business requirements and project scope.
