Like Lady Gaga's outfits, 100% pre-packaged database solutions rarely fit. We've created the most efficient alternative on the market: Jump-Start Solutions.
A Jump-Start Solution from Excelisys is not a 'product.' It is not a shrink-wrapped, off-the-shelf solution (although it can be used "as is," but let's not get ahead of ourselves). It is a 75% completed solution, with the bulk of the nitty gritty, foundational development work already done.
You can complete the remaining 25% of the development work on your own (are you feeling lucky?), or you can bring us in to handcraft the solution to meet your specific needs and tastes (we'll dominate on your behalf).
If you choose to retain Excelisys to complete the remaining work (seems like a great idea to us), you get the best of both worlds: a highly efficient, yet tailor-made solution that will make your company more profitable, your life easier and the sun shine brighter on your face. You also get a pretty good discount:
Upon purchasing one of our discounted introductory blocks of 3, 6, or 9 hours, you have the option to receive a link to download an unlocked copy of the eXBT3. Use the time how you like, for support or small modifications, or discussing how to take the Jump-Start solution to a new level!
Then upgrade to a larger block of time for more serious customization, or just start big from the start. And because we discount our rate based on the block size of time in a single purchase, the more you buy, the more you save!
The eX-BizTracker 4 is the next giant step forward in the jump-start solution's long history. Taking advantage of the latest innovations in the new FileMaker Pro 12, this new completely rewritten version of the eX-BizTracker is much leaner and easier to use and extend. Along with a slick new interface, the EX-BizTracker 4 is better than ever!
The eX-BizTracker 4 makes it easy to manage a small- or medium-sized business in a cost-effective solution that can be easily modified and extended. Instead of being locked in to a software "product" with proprietary code, the EX-BizTracker 4 is open and flexible so it can keep up with your changing needs over time.
Even those without much FileMaker Pro development knowledge can easily put the eX-BizTracker 4 to work for them. Intermediary FileMaker Pro developers will learn by example about best practices in FileMaker design and development, and pick-up new techniques they can use in their own FileMaker solutions. And seasoned FileMake Pro developers will love it's clean and trim foundation that's a pleasure to work within, and closely follows the FileMaker Pro industry-accepted development and naming conventions established by filemakerstandards.org.
Converting a FileMaker Pro solution written in the .fp7 format to the new fmp12 file format is an extremely painless task. To illustrate this, we did a straight conversion on our ever-popular Excelisys Business Tracker (eXBT). The result was an almost identical solution with only minor interface changes (some layout objects required slight adjustment of size and/or placement) and one minor adjustment to the navigation script. Otherwise, everything else behaved normally and without any additional modifications.
To jazz things up a bit, we took advantage of the new object states feature and you will now see that the buttons in the top Navigation Bar will highlight just by rolling over them with the mouse. This new feature takes very little time to implement, but goes a long way to provide users with powerful, additional visual feedback of their actions.
The Excelisys Business Tracker (eX BizTracker) V3.0 for FileMaker Pro 11 is now ready for prime time baby! Excelisys has upgraded it’s flagship jump–start solution with dozens of new features including: eye–popping charts and graphs; dynamic sub–summaries in list views; activity tracking; send email directly out of FileMaker Pro; and a completely upgraded graphic interface. There is now a free locked and fully functional demo version, and an unlocked version if you choose to buy some time, just remember that you MUST use FileMaker Pro 11!
