Run by me (Mike Weideli) the business has been supplying and supporting Recorder
since Recorder 2000 was first launched. I have supplied over 300 copies of the package
and have undertaken support work for a number of individuals, LRC' s and societies.
I started the business having taken early retirement from a national organisation
where I was the IT Manager for the retail arm of the business.
Recorder 6 uses Microsoft SQL Server as its underlying database. I can support this
in various ways, including through MS Access projects and Transact SQL. I am an
experienced user of SQL having worked over the years with a number of SQL based systems.
After over 5 years of working with the Recorder 6 data structure I consider myself
an expert in managing and manipulating it.
I run my own survey of West Berkshire molluscs and I am using Recorder o hold this
data. I have first hand experience of the needs of data recorders through the voluntary
support of local organisations.
Recorder now forms the major part of my business, but I still support a local employment
agency and do occasional work on other business systems.
Weideli is a Swiss name, from my grandfather who came to London early in the 20th
Century. It means small pasture or little field, hence the name of the business.
