I have worked with Glen Schild since 2004 on NFL Fantasy Football projects and have found his database work to be exemplary – always of the most exacting standards and completed well before it was expected. Glen makes sure that he is always available for follow-up conversations about the work he has completed, which is always extremely helpful. I would recommend Glen’s work to anyone needing a database developer.

As a growing charity, our old database simply wasn’t up to the job. So we asked Glen Schild of GJ Stats to design and develop a new database based on a careful research of our needs. It had to maintain a user-friendly record of all our supporters, manage their donations, book sales and magazine subscriptions, and be both user-friendly and flexible enough to cope with growth. Glen designed and produced a brilliant bespoke solution, based on Alpha Anywhere software.

Glen Schild has worked on the Sky Sports NFL coverage since 2003 as the graphics supervisor and statistician. He has consistently demonstrated a dedicated and professional approach. He is always on top of what he's doing in a highly organised, comprehensive and accurate manner. I feel very comfortable delegating such a crucial job to Glen because of his consistently high standards and he is a pleasure to work with.
