Mike has been in the business for so long that he has acquired a wide range of skills. He has also learned that being flexible and prepared to venture into new territory is the best way to stay abreast of the latest technologies and skills.
How do you normally charge for your service?
We prefer to charge a single, all inclusive turn-key fee. However, this will depend on the project, and the work that may be needed. We do believe in making sure our customers are never surprised with unexpected fees or charges.
What makes your pricing competitive?
Because of the Internet, we no longer need to employ large teams of specialists. Instead, we outsource some of our work to those best qualified to do the work. AcesWebs then manages each project to ensure that we deliver the highest quality work to our clients. This translates into prices that very few other IT companies can beat.
Are there any special offers you would like to offer to Oneflare customers?
Not at the moment. We prefer to charge lower fees and give the highest quality service in return. We do not cut corners. However, occasionally we will be able to offer special prices on specific services.

What do you like most about your job?
There is nothing more satisfying than producing a beautiful and functional website that makes our customer happy.
And designing and creating a business application that saves our customers time and money is what makes us happy.
Do you have a favourite customer story you would like to share?
We were hired by an artificial flower manufacturer to automate and integrate their materials ordering, shipping documentation, and accounting system.
Fifteen months later the entire system was finished, installed, and tested. The customer started using the system and reported that managing his business had become extremely easy as a result. He could print out reports on every facet of his business, saving him time and money.
Ten years later the client called us back to discuss upgrading the system. He was still using the old program and it had never broken down! Not even Microsoft could ever boast a foolproof program!
How did you decide to get into your line of work?
I started out my life in the RAAF where I trained as a Telegraphist. The skills I was taught included speed touch typing (about 110 wpm), Morse code (yes...that long ago!), programming and processing encryption machines, tape relay services, air-to-ground and ground-to-air communications, and much more. I served in Ubon, northeast Thailand in 1967 at the height of the Vietnam war.
After I left the RAAF I always maintained an interest in technology and using some of the skills I had learned. But it wasn't in 1985 when the first PC's appeared that I was able to put all my skills to work again. My first PC was a Commodore 64. It came with a manual to teach how to program in BASIC. I mastered that language quickly and when the first IBM PC came out not long afterwards I bought one and hired a teacher for 2 years to teach me how to design databases and write applications for them.
I have been heavily involved in IT ever since those early days, and even contributed to the development of the IT industry in Thailand by writing a newspaper column called "dBasics" for four years, as well as setting up one of the first BBS (Bulletin Board Services), the pre-cursor to the internet. And of course, when the Internet finally came along I designed one of the first websites in Thailand. At that time, there were less than one million people on the internet around the world. That website attracted quite a few people to contact me and I am still friends with some of them to this day.
So, for me, the IT industry has not only provided a fun way to make a living, it has also expanded my horizons around the world and helped me make friends with people I would never have met otherwise.
One other thing I have found invaluable from my experience in IT is that I have always been learning new technologies. And this keeps me young and in touch with the world.
