Searchable Databases

Display searchable information on hundreds or thousands of items

On the web today, content is king. Any site that successfully attracts repeat visitors has to have fresh and constantly updated content. However, in the case where a site needs to display information on hundreds or thousands of items, maintenance of this can be a major headache, and very expensive too.

The solution to this headache is to create a database-driven web site. Instead of Red Rhino creating a web page for every item, we develop a database that allows the client to add, edit and manage information about each item, at any time, via the normal web browser. Then we create search forms on the web site to display search results in a stylish manner. Site visitors can search by any element of information which the client has added – size, cost, weight, price, age, etc – there’s no limit to the possibilities!

Databases can either be publicly viewable, for anyone visiting your web site to use, or be private, used only by site owner or by users with access password.

Database Design Northern Ireland

Red Rhino offers development of bespoke software and database solutions, designed specifically to meet the individual needs of our clients. In bespoke database development, we work closely with clients to fully and clearly understand their needs before embarking on any bespoke project, to fully understand the proposed development and what it needs to achieve.

Designing a bespoke database can be a costly and time consuming exercise and so we will fully explore options as to whether your needs can be met by using an ‘off-the-shelf’ CMS Database facility

A CMS Database uses a generic software package, designed to cover a multitude of uses, which can then be modified and customised by Red Rhino to best suit your needs.

This is a much more cost efficient and quicker route, compared to bespoke database development, if your needs are mainstream and not entirely 100% specific.
