Get the most from your Oracle & SQL Server Databases with Our Experience

At Savant our focus is on database systems that just work – reliably day-after-day, year-after-year.

Savant’s experience of relational database development dates back to the nineteen-eighties!

We understand that databases do not exist alone – but are part of a system – and there is often a need to integrate data from a number of systems, held in a variety of formats. You may already have systems or suppliers or customers with systems with a number of formats such as spreadsheets, CSV files, fixed length formats, HL7 feeds, XML structures and a variety of access methodologies, including ODBC and web services.

The good news is Savant has worked with all of these and more…
