A business solution, not just a new software package

We don’t just create what we think you need – or what you think you need. We want to achieve the very best Claris FileMaker solution possible. That’s why we work closely with you in a genuine partnership approach to get under the skin of your business and to investigate how it could be improved.

This means taking the trouble to understand your business, usually by running a multi-day workshop with your team. We will get to know you, challenge your thinking if necessary, and design a reliable and appropriate solution that draws on our long FileMaker development experience across many sectors. We also implement the new system with great care, ensuring your business functions are never adversely affected.

We can agree on success criteria in advance – both tangible KPIs and also intangible ones such as staff morale – and ensure they get delivered.

What a bespoke FileMaker system can do for you

Our software development consultants work in partnership with you to design and build a bespoke system that meets your exact needs. Your system can be integrated with existing applications, such as your accounts package and any specialist software for your industry, and adapted to your business processes, however unique they are. It will do what it needs to do and nothing more or less.

Your system will also work on any device that your teams use, across desktop, mobile and the web, whether office or home-based. And it will be easy to use, designed to fit seamlessly with your existing processes or help to introduce an ideal workflow.

How we work with you


We start by digging deep into how your business works, your aspirations, and what you want to achieve. This thorough understanding is a critical first step – it is the secret to business transformation.


We gain a detailed understanding of the business processes that the software needs to support and look for ways to streamline and improve them. We then design your new system. 


Our UK-based software developers build your system, testing it carefully to ensure it meets your business needs – while keeping ease of use uppermost in mind. We often create and launch one module at a time, so you see results as soon as possible.


We install the new system, train you to use it and ensure any issues are solved. This process is handled with great care to minimise disruption.
