Excelisys Business Tracker (eX-BizTracker)

Jump-Start FileMaker Pro Solution

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”, nor is it 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 50-75% completed solution (YMMV), with the bulk of the nitty gritty and hard junk foundational development work already completed.

You can complete the remaining 25-50% of the development work on your own (are you feeling lucky?), or you can bring us in to help you 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 too!

The Excelisys eX-BizTracker family is a series of FileMaker Pro templates for small to medium size businesses and organizations who wish to track clients, invoices, inventory, shipping/receiving, payments and communications in a robust multi-user scalable FileMaker Pro database solution. Built off of a strong foundation of the original FileMaker Business Tracker developed by Excelisys for FileMaker, Inc. Excelisys has upgraded the FileMaker Pro small business jump-start solutions with dozens of new features and enhancements.

The eX-BizTracker has over 100K downloads by users from our website. Nearly 95,000 users have downloaded the FileMaker Business Tracker, becoming one of the most popular free templates available for download from FileMaker, Inc. Developers and end-users have found the GUI and feature-set very attractive, as it has offered their clients and employers a jump-start advantage in building intuitive custom solutions.

eX-BizTracker 4.13

New and Improved for FileMaker Pro 13!

The eX-BizTracker 4.13 maximizes the latest innovations in FileMaker Pro® 13, resulting in a more feature-rich tool and adding more value to an already incredible jump-start FileMaker Pro template.

The new features developed in the eX-BizTracker 4.13 take advantage of FileMaker’s aggressive leap into the web and iOS/Mobile platform deployment strategies. Pop-overs and slide controls require much less development effort than workarounds in earlier versions, and allow a true single document interface that feels natural on iOS devices and in a browser. Our new task-specific companion modules leverage these enhancements to provide elegant and intuitive solutions for a variety of needs.

BizTracker Orders
The eX-BizTracker 4.13 incorporates a host of elements to enhance usability features and functionality, including CRM to manage both companies and/or organizations and individuals, allowing for multiple addresses and contact methods for each, along with activity logs, reminders and email.

The integrated document management and storage provides seamless functionality with customers, orders, invoices, POs or products, with optional encryption, improving ability to track products (goods, services and fees) along with inventory management. The updated features allow the eX-BizTracker 4.13 to integrate with common off-the-shelf products such as QuickBooks, and third-party software/services from companies such as FedEx, UPS, and Salesforce.

Features of FileMaker 13 incorporated into BT4.13 include:

  • WebDirect compatibility
  • Custom theme and style sheets for consistent appearance, improved performance, and easy adjustment
  • Popovers instead of pop-up windows for smoother user experience
  • Use of object visibility settings for simplified layout editing
  • Disabled active row state on portals to prevent unwanted selection
  • Use of “FETCH FIRST” in ExecuteSQL statements to limit query results
  • Current record indicator removed in list view for more modern appearance

eX-BizTracker 4.12

One of the most popular FileMaker Pro Templates!

The eX-BizTracker 4 is a giant step forward in the jump-start solution’s long history. Taking advantage of the latest innovations in FileMaker Pro 12, this 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 needs over time.

Even those without much FileMaker knowledge can easily put the eX-BizTracker 4 to work for them. Intermediary developers will learn by example about best practices in design and development, and pick-up new techniques they can use in their own solutions. And seasoned developers will love its clean and trim foundation that’s a pleasure to work within, and closely follows the industry-accepted development and naming conventions established by filemakerstandards.org.
