Our journey with a new client commences by us arranging to visit you at your premises. We will invest our time to understand what systems you have in operation. Where are all the datapools? What types of data and applications support your business and its processes? Is there duplication, inaccuracies, bottlenecks or missing elements? Our initial meeting with you will typically last about 3 hours and at its conclusion we will expect to have a full picture of how your IT supports your business processes. We will then assess how Datapool can help make you money, save you money and give you greater visibility and control over the data that drives your business. We then arrange a follow up meeting with you for a no obligation discussion on how we might be able to help you move forward.
Fusion is a Java based development toolset built upon interchangeable, open source frameworks.
Fusion is constantly growing as our client base grows and extends the areas of data management which we seek to support.
Fusion comprises over 300,000 lines of code, a single open source SQL database with over 300 tables, over 400 user selectable application pages and over 500 user selectable system processes. Fusion alone will not solve a problem. A Datapool solution comprises Master Data Management (MDM) enabled through our Fusion software and served to our customers in the form of a hosted cloud based suite of applications. Datapool works seamlessly alongside existing software applications a client wishes to retain.

Like many cloud applications Datapool is priced as a simple monthly subscription service. You do not need to “buy” the software or any hardware to run it. Your Datapool solution is made available to you and your stakeholders via a PDA such as a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone and any common web browser such as Google Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Our pricing is designed to make your entry point as inexpensive as possible and to give you a fixed monthly cost irrespective of development demand or peaks of activity.
There are 4 elements that make up your single monthly charge, these are:-
Our entry level pricing starts at £500+ VAT per month and is usually set at a level commensurate with the value that Datapool will deliver for your business and the level of service that you require.
Service Level Contracts tend to be of a 12 month rolling duration with a three month cancellation clause to protect both party’s interests. We would never seek to lock you into a Datapool Solution and it is as easy to leave the programme as it is to join should you decide on an alternative route forward in the future. All data in Datapool can be exported at any time, in any common format such as Microsoft Excel, XML, pdf or SQL.
Data held within your dedicated Datapool is under your exclusive ownership at all times and is highly secure to your organisation only. Data is never shared with or accessible from any other organisation. Upon termination of a service contract, all data is returned safely to a client, in its entirety.
