Hello!

My name's Richard Wein.

I've been using computers for 40 years, some of that time in professional software development. Now that I'm semi-retired and living in Westgate-on-Sea, I'm offering my computer skills to local people and small businesses at reasonable rates.

If you would prefer me to quote a fixed price for a job, instead of an hourly rate, please ask. In any case, I won't charge any more than you think is reasonable, and not at all if I'm unable to help you.

What Clients Have Said

We at Thanet Volunteer Bureau are unbelievably grateful to Richard for his work on our website. For his (significant) time, skills and patience working with me – someone with no real computer background but with a vision for how I wanted the search facilities and interactive forms to work. As time went on, and the search facility was used, we developed it further. Richard’s technical know-how and ability to listen and then create what was asked for, enabled us to simplify the system to meet our exact needs. What looks deceptively simple is in fact a complex database system. Richard was more than happy to work in the office and from home, making it better and better in his role as a Thanet Volunteer Bureau volunteer. Richard is a perfectionist and won’t rest until he’s made what you want happen, he will also suggest ways to improve its functions – his efforts go above and beyond! He has an easy and gentle manner and will also explain how it’s all working (which I find fascinating) – if you want.

Richard has been awarded a Stronger Kent Communities award certificate for his volunteer efforts and will be invited to our volunteer recognition awards celebration in Winter 2017/18.

Richard designed a work tool for our service using Excel and Database. We did not have any digital recording methods prior, and the tools have really helped us understand our data better. We are now able to record our outcomes and measure more effectively due to Richard’s design, and the tools are in use daily.

We at Rethink Thanet Way would highly recommend Richard for his professionalism and dedication to his work, as well as expert knowledge in his field.

Richard has been an absolute Godsend in setting up and maintaining my business website. He was very helpful at all stages, from conception to development and implementation. He even managed to cope with, and continue smiling at, the repetitive and often silly questions of a computer dummy like me!

I am grateful to Richard for all his hard work and having the website has had a definite impact on growing my business.
