Custom Software
Custom Software Programs are designed with unique features to perfectly fit your specific business needs. This means the software conforms to your business instead of your business conforming to the software. Plus ... as your business grows Custom Software can be modifed ... providing additional value over time.
Prebuilt Software
Prebuilt Software Programs are ready to go with no custom software development time. This may mean less up front expense but the software is less likely to fit your specific needs. Your business is forced to conform to the software and as your business grows the software can lose much of it's initial value.
While there are individual benefits to either Prebuilt or Custom Software ... we offer a unique way to obtain the benefits of Both.

With our advanced program modules you'll have the benefits of a prebuilt app without sacrificing custom development features.

or Both ?

Prebuilt - Modular Database System
Customizable Templates and Prebuilt Modules

​​We've refined the best of our FileMaker database solutions over the years to create a suite of advanced templates and modules for use as a starting point. These starter templates can be used individually to create distinct software apps or together as a complete unified business program. They can also be integrated into other FileMaker programs and are completly customizable.

Nearly all of our development projects begin with our modular database system ... providing the framework and core database tables required in most programs. You too can take advantage of these pre-built modules to kick start your own custom development project. Starting with a core system saves hours of development time and provides the proper structure for a successful software application.
