About the Company:
Back in 1982 the founders of DataModes, Inc. wanted to provide small businesses an accounting system with capabilities beyond those normally found in the PC environment. To accomplish this, they applied the database technology used in large mainframe computers. Proven designs for processing business applications on large computers were adapted to multi-user PCs.
The DataModes TM4 software addresses all sizes of businesses, providing modules for manufacturing, accounting, order processing, inventory control, and job costing. The DataModes TM4 modules run on single or multi-user systems and on most of the operating systems available today.
The core modules form an accounting base around which a multitude of business applications can be built. The modules are designed to be easily configured for a variety of businesses including manufacturers, wholesale distributors, various service oriented businesses, and retail establishments.
The modules are also designed to ease the addition of custom programs that further meet the needs of a particular business. While the system is totally integrated, the programs and the data files are independent of each other. This allows considerable flexibility in expanding the system beyond the basic modules. DataModes can easily add special reports and other custom changes.
DataModes emphasizes training and support, without which even the best design is compromised. The staff at DataModes takes pride in its ability to give personalized assistance to clients; the staff simply does not believe in selling a “package” of software and walking away. Assistance in the initial installation, demonstration, and training are provided for each module delivered. Technical support after the initial training phase is provided through support contracts.
The skills of the staff include experience in retailing, manufacturing, accounting, wholesaling, and data processing. The DataModes staff is weighted heavily towards technical support, installation services, and system design/programming. Much of this experience and expertise in database applications has been applied to the application modules offered by DataModes.
The company has customers across North America and around the world.
DataModes has made great strides in providing the business world with software that meets the varied needs of the market today. The DataModes staff intends to remain on the forefront of technology and to continue serving the needs of the market.
