Let's Talk: 866–592–9235

Solution Consultants

Our primary focus is to listen, we listen to your technology needs and dreams and suggest some solutions. We educate you about what the eXcelisys development team can accomplish (most everything, eXcept for brain surgery ((our guys could, but that would just be bragging))…and tightrope walking…and other similar weird feats), about your options (do you need a side order of Web applications with that?), and about the process. We estimate timelines and costs (we know, it’s eXciting), and consider what can and cannot, should and should not, be done on your behalf.

Rick
Rick brings to the eXcelisys family a wealth of real–world eXperience. During Rick’s time in the United States Marine Corps, his main duties were security forces, counter terrorism and “Information Technology Man.” It was in the Marines that Rick learned you lead from the front.

Since leaving the Marines, Rick has worked in technologies from Mac to PC, from ACT to Microsoft Outlook, and held many titles, from Account Manager to Director of Sales to Director of Customer Service. While working in the security world, he dealt with customers ranging from small operations to nation–wide retailers, treating each with respect and holding close to the ethic that you “say what you mean and do what you say.”

When Rick isn’t taking care of customers, he can be found at home hanging out with his wife and kids, or out on the golf course.

Mark brings to the eXcelisys family a wealth of real–world eXperience. Mark comes to us not from the more traditional programming path, but from an eXtensive background in project management, wireless technology, and business solution sales in both public and private sectors. As a business owner himself, Mark not only understands the need for candor from both sides of the table during the discovery and solution process, but has gained a regional reputation for honesty and integrity and empathy for the needs of his clients. After careers in management, production and sales, Mark started his own B to B wireless sales company so he could work with clients in a non pressuring, respectful manner, on a timetable that made sense for the client more than for a production report. His attention to his customers after the sale is his trademark. He has a depth of eXperience in successfully solving communications problems for a variety of Federal, State and Local government, and private businesses of all sizes. Mark and his wife enjoy travel to those ‘off the beaten track’ sorts of places, particularly if they offer turquoise water and white sand.

Levi
FileMaker Certified Developer
Coming from an eXercise and healthcare background, Levi has been building FileMaker databases since FileMaker 1.0. She has created primarily orthopedic and nonprofit applications. A quote from a friend sums up her attitude about FileMaker Pro: “Levi thinks everything can be solved with FileMaker Pro.” This belief leads her to dream up solutions for almost everything. Most recently she was an in–house developer for a spine rehab facility where she developed a state–of–the–art, touch–screen–driven, clinic management solution using FileMaker Pro. If you can disconnect her from her computer, you will find Levi pursuing her other love: anything active. She can usually be found on one of her bikes, under water eXploring, tromping through the woods somewhere, or chasing her dogs. Any activity from under the sea to the top of the mountain is fair game.

Customer Solution Management

Our responsibility is to make sure you are satisfied with the progress and deliverables of the development team. We set goals, refine your solution ideas, solidify communications, and keep things on track. In other words, we crack the whip on your behalf. But sometimes we have to serve as Debbie Downer and deliver honest counsel that you need–but might not want–to hear. As a result, we are sometimes unpopular. But we’d rather be unpopular than deliver sub–par results.

Joe brings fresh new blood to the eXcelsys development team. Already a Certified FileMaker Developer, Joe decided to leave his comfortable position as an in-house developer for the more intellectually satisfying field of consulting. Joe has primarily developed solutions in the medical manufacturing industry, an industry where the paper work never ends and the terabytes add up. In this venture, Joe has created fully custom ERP systems, document management systems, as well as labor and work order tracking systems. Joe is very passionate about developing creative solutions to not only fill his customer’s needs, but also systems they love to use.

Joe is a two time New York Catholic State Basketball Champion and loves to play and coach in his free time. If not playing basketball one can usually find him at your local rock climbing gym, or at the local chess club giving the grandmasters (more likely the 10 year olds) a run for their money. If chess is not nerdy enough, one can find Joe at Barnes and Noble’s history section looking for his next biography to read.

Natalie started on her FileMaker career path in 2014 under the tutelage of her father, a great mentor and seasoned FileMaker application development specialist. She enjoys applying the broad capabilities of FileMaker to solving customers’ detailed operational problems saving them money and making them happy. Natalie’s greatest reward has been creating viable solutions that everyone enjoys using. She has worked with clients to develop successful solutions for inventory management, company scheduling, and complex reporting among others. Through client feedback and creative customizations Natalie found that she excels at work in the FileMaker Pro environment, and happily looks forward to developing solutions with the team at eXcelisys.

FileMaker Certified Developer
Paul started his professional life as an accountant, at a firm that had a FileMaker Pro 3 database doing their cost accounting. While it did the trick, the usability and interface left a lot to be desired. Paul started digging into the guts of the database, and found this to be more fun than accounting. Within a year, he was starting to develop his own solutions and garnering a client base part-time; a few years later, he quit accounting for good and went into the geeky and nerdy field of custom FileMaker Pro database application development and consulting!

He started out building software for clients in the graphic design industries, then he eventually eXpanded into helping non-profits and schools. Since then, Paul’s eXtensive business and financial training combined with his ability to come up with creative problem-solving solutions has served him well with consistently impressing clients from different industries and markets throughout North America.

Paul has focused mainly in FileMaker Pro development over the years, but he has also opened up his toolkit and learned some additional technologies in the web-space with WordPress, JavaScript, and can easily bend Excel files to his will (using only his mind!). After a few years with eXcelisys in 2007, Paul left to form his own company then realized there was a lot more to it then just being a fantastic developer. So, now he’s back, having realized that he’s a better programmer than he is a business owner. And we are glad he came back!

In his spare time, Paul has become a regular on the folk music scene in his hometown of Ottawa, Ontario, playing banjo and mandolin while he sings songs about love, murder, and hard times.

He moved the process for staff recruitment to a custom PHP-based online site which incorporated social media and Google Drive integration.

RJ began creating FileMaker Pro solutions to improve operations for his institution, which included mobile solutions running on iPhones and iPads with FileMaker Go. He integrated FileMaker Pro solutions with eXisting SQL Server databases and an Oracle-based student information system.

Before joining eXcelisys, RJ worked as a freelance developer for several years, becoming a Certified FileMaker Pro Developer and serving clients in a range of industries, including education, tourism, entertainment and manufacturing. RJ is an SQL whiz (so he says), specializing in connection of FileMaker Pro solutions with web apps and platforms using RESTful APIs. His background includes eXperience with a diverse range of software platforms, from Adobe CS to VBScript; he is particularly proud of his keen “Google-fu.” Currently, RJ is learning Ruby on Rails and experimenting with hybrid Rails/FM solutions.

As a recovering philosophy major, RJ is deeply interested in “meta” everything, like metaphysics, meta-ethics, and–most recently–meta-programming. He resides in Philadelphia and is a huge fan of urban life. When he isn’t poised above his keyboard, RJ likes to learn languages, write iambic pentameter, bike around the city, pretend to play rugby, eat adventurously, and cut his own hair.

Lisa was in first grade the first time a teacher offered praise for her writing. By sixth grade, her family had procured an Apple ][ home computer and she started dashing off words daily and winning American Legion essay contests. Lisa continued her wordsmithing in college, graduating from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. She spent several years in the newspaper business—as a writer, photographer, page designer and copy editor.

In 1998, Lisa struck out on her own as a freelance word-maven-for-hire (so she could commute to work in her slippers via the coffeepot!). Since then, Lisa has written enough words to circle the earth 52 times if you stacked all of her sentences end-to-end. Lisa works with publishing companies, universities, magazines, local start-ups, multimedia conglomerates and emerging authors to produce magazine articles, business brochures, internal newsletters, encyclopedias, training modules, web content and technical manuals.

Whatever your word needs, Lisa can string ’em together. With more than two decades of eXperience, she understands the necessity of having a well-worded website that is user friendly, emotive and on brand.

Lisa is a word-stewing, coffee-quaffing, saxophone-blowing, bike-riding mother of three boys. When she is not attacking the keyboard, she can be found in the side yard playing catcher for her middle son as he perfects his two-seam fastball … or counting rhythms for the little cello-playing guy … or sending in tuition payments for the big guy. A foodie, Lisa loves local farm-fresh foods and can do freakishly fabulous things with kale.
