Why would you want a bespoke FileMaker system?

Your business has its own unique ways of working but the lack of a powerful software solution that fits your workflows could be starting to hold you back. A bespoke Claris FileMaker system is an ideal solution – a direct match for your processes, so closely aligned that it’s intuitive for your people to use, and one which integrates with any other software you need to use. This is the key to business transformation.

A reliable way to solve your problems: our FileMaker development process

We deliver our software development services using a tried and tested approach that ensures you get a bespoke FileMaker system that’s right for your business.

At the start, our business transformation consultants spend a great deal of time with you to understand your business inside out, asking questions of people throughout the organisation until we have a thorough understanding of what you do, how you do it and why. During this process we also identify what your problems are and where they occur. Then we set out to design a system that will not only solve those problems but also help kickstart a process of business transformation.

Designing, developing and implementing your Claris FileMaker solution will usually take place in stages. This minimises disruption and means you can keep serving your customers while our software development services solve your business challenges.

Here’s how we can help you 

A bespoke system from scratch

If you need a business system that’s built to meet your needs and solve your problems, we can build you a new solution from the ground up. The advantage is that we can start afresh and design a system that’s elegant, easy to use and does exactly what it needs to do.

Migrate to Claris FileMaker from a different system

Your old business system may have served you well but right now it’s holding you back. But you can’t just throw it all away as it’s business critical. We can build you a new system and move your processes across one step at a time so your business never stops working.

Why our Claris FileMaker systems work so well 


We build you exactly what you need and nothing else. Your Claris FileMaker system will be a perfect fit for your business needs, easy to use from the very start.

Business understanding

We know what it takes to run a business and we have worked with all kinds of businesses across many sectors. We are well placed to build effective business tools that deliver genuine value. 


As part of our software development services, we can ensure that your new business system integrates with other software you use, from common business applications to industry-specific tools.

Audit trail

Your new Claris FileMaker system will keep a record of who did what and when. This simple but detailed data about your people, activities and operations can offer vital insights about costs, productivity and profitability.
