Why focus on database development?
- Databases are ideal storage and retrieval systems that offer many ways to facilite access to information via networks, intranets and websites.
- We noticed, after working for a number of years in the field of database development, that countless organisations (large and small) need database products but do not have the resources (technical skills, equipment, etc.), finances, or time to develope them. This is where we fit in.
What is the development platform?
- We have chosen Microsoft® development platform - utilising the entire Office suite of products Access, Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint®, etc.
- We make extensive use of Microsoft® Access and Visual Basic for Applications.
- At present, according to demand, we develop in Microsoft® Office 97, 2000, 2002 (XP), 2007, 2010 and 2013.

Where did the name 'Logos Flow' come from?
The origins are a bit philosophical: Heraclitus of Ephesus, an ancient Greek philosopher, held a doctrine in which logos is mentioned as a sort of non-human intelligence that organizes the elements of the world into a coherent whole. Well, aren't computers a sort of non-human intelligence? And we use them to assisting in organising the elements of the world into a coherent whole?
The word flow: well, the The conside Oxford English dictionary (7th edition) says:
glide along as a stream; (... money, electric current) circulate; (of persons or things) come and go in large numbers or smoothly; [...]
This pretty much sums it up as flow points to cycles of life, fluctuations of business, computer programs, electrons, bits and bytes, etc, ... Hence, Logos Flow.
