Partnering to maximize business value
Data Bakery partners with clients. We delve into the details of our clients' business needs to design and develop a solution that cost-effectively maximizes business value.
Our solutions range from consultation, intellectual property management, and system architecture to software delivery including mobile applications, web applications and desktop applications. Through our network of partners, we also provide hardware solutions such as embedded software and hardware design and manufacture.
Data Bakery combines professional engineering practices and 20 years of industry experience to deliver exceptional quality and value.
How we do it
We adhere to these guiding principles:
Our Client’s Success is Our Success
Data Bakery concentrates on maximizing a client’s business value. If a client succeeds in attaining their business goals, Data Bakery succeeds.
A Firm, Not a Shop
Data Bakery is a firm focused on treating each client like a partner rather than just as a source of revenue. We care about our client’s business as if it was our own.
We don’t force clients to painstakingly assemble their own solutions. Instead, we supply clients with all of the services they need. We bring 20 years of experience to helping make the daunting process of product development simple, cost-effective and successful.
Schultz & Associates, P.C. (GRSPC)
Replace an aging legal docketing system with a web application.
GRSPC came to Data Bakery with an idea for replacing their antiquated docketing system. (A legal docketing system can be thought of as “Outlook for legal matters.”) They needed to smoothly replace the existing system with a new state-of-the-art system – one that could also become the foundation for a future SaaS (Software as a Service) offering.
Data Bakery engaged GRSPC in a design process, working closely with firm lawyers and staff to develop a thorough understanding of the problem and to produce mockups that would accurately convey the scope and functionality of the system.
During development, intermediate but functional versions of the system were delivered on a weekly basis. Adjustments to scope were made along the way to ensure that the system would indeed address GRSPC's business goals.
When complete, Data Bakery completely handled all data extraction, transformation and loading required to smoothly transition GRSPC to the new system.
The Graphic Company (TGC)
CREATE A BID
Develop a print job estimation system as a SaaS web application, both for internal use and for sale to other print shops.
When Data Bakery began work with TGC on CREATE A BID, we started with TGC's estimation spreadsheet that, over 10 years, had accumulated multiple sheets and hundreds of complex formulas.
Data Bakery guided TGC through the design process to mockup a web application that would meet their goals and reproduce the functionality of the spreadsheet.
When the design was finalized, Data Bakery developed the system according to the design, delivering weekly intermediate builds with source code and making adjustments along the way. Development included painstakingly reverse-engineering the client’s spreadsheet and re-implementing the core estimation logic in a web application context.
When complete, Data Bakery assisted with and consulted on hosting the application, integrating web content, integrating with billing systems, web analytics systems and advertising management platforms.
