And eXperienced. eXcellent at what we do. eXact with our deliverables. eXceptionally talented (so they say). And we’re obviously well versed in over-the-top wordplay.
If that isn’t enough, here are some other reasons:
Our team brings more than 200 years of combined experience in custom web application and database solution development to bear on your business software solutions. In developer years, just like in dog years, that’s closer to 1,400 years. And 1,400 years ago the Byzantine Empire still existed. Think about it.
We’ve worked with everyone under the sun-from Adobe, FileMaker, Inc., M.I.T., Chevron and Cisco Systems to the University of Chicago, The Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, and Dometic-and they all love us. We know you’re probably thinking, “Those are all huge companies with truckloads of money.” Not really, so don’t worry about that; from our perspective, no job is too small! In fact, size really doesn’t matter to us. And unlike most people who say it, we really mean it. Just ask Tom Westman, owner of TRW Innovations, LLC, or Neil King, President of King Shots, Inc., or Todd Golebiewski, Manager of River View Campground & Canoe Livery. You can even call them. Just check our Portfolio section and you’ll find their numbers there.
Call us geeks, but we love solving information management problems. Seriously. And our love for what we do shows in the database and web solutions we provide to our clients. And our web application and database solutions make our clients love us back. In fact, we have a 95 percent client retention rate. They just keep coming back for more.

We could write over-the-top praise for ourselves all day, but you should probably hear from some of our customers instead:

Working with eXcelisys enabled us to build a product that was robust and flexible that met the needs of the users throughout campus. eXcelisys' pricing is fair and they are efficient with their time – a true value!
Working with you enabled us to build a product that was robust and flexible that met the needs of the users throughout campus. eXcelisys allowed us to build a great product while learning the software at the same time (it’s like a two for one!).
Working with Doug has eXceeded our eXpectations. He is professional and very easy going. I was taken aback many times as I only had to explain an issue once and he would get it (normally it takes others a couple times to get where I’m coming from). If Doug doesn’t know the answer he doesn’t BS you – he will tell you straight out and do the research to find it out. He shares information and provided guidance so that I could learn and do. Doug is an true professional whom I would definitely recommend to others!

Excelisys is a remarkable team who are as invested in the outcome of your project as you are. In the short term, you get the results you need. In the long term, you have a partner familiar with your business and your database and ready to jump in as your needs evolve. They inspire confidence.
I think the feeling that I was making the right choice going with y’all came from my first connection with you, Levi. From an initial web search for Filemaker Developers, all companies pretty much make the same promises, but that initial engagement, feeling like you were really investing the time to get to know me and what I was trying to do, really set Exelisys apart.
And Doug is wonderful. We worked through the project and he gave me something that I could work with very quickly. I had some high stakes goals for launching the system and Doug put himself on standby to make sure everything went smoothly. That’s exceptional service. And it is great to know that when I need to tweak something, or when something that normally works doesn’t in a certain situation, Doug will respond quickly with either the steps I need to take, or jump under the hood to get things working again.
I really like the system that we have for working on the database – Doug has Dropbox access to my database, so if needed he can go right in there and work on it. More often, though, he tests a solution, then gets online with me to show me how to implement it.
My relationship with the Founder of Excelisys goes back 20+ years.
I have witnessed first–hand the creative vision and growth of an Industry leader in Database Solution Development and Deployment. I sought out Christo and his team for my meager project of an Intra–net Sales Automation solution.
We photograph very large competitions nationwide and we needed a system that was easy to use and rock solid, as it was to be setup and torn down in 30 cities over a six-month period.
But most importantly, for a small businessman on a tight budget, I needed to realize a significant increase in operating profit to justify this investment.
Kurt Knippel and Cesar Morales are amazing to work with, especially for someone with all the demands in the world, but with very little knowledge of actual solution building protocols and limitations.
I have been known to be impatient and both Cesar and Kurt held my hand through the entire process, all the while wondering why Christo had put up with a “friend like me” for so many years.
I demanded; they produced. I was impatient; they were soothing and methodical. Biggest bottom line: SALES INCREASED!
I look forward to Kurt, Cesar and Christo’s continued patience and expertise as we refine an already fantastic Solution. Thank you Excelisys.

Excelisys was an excellent choice – far exceeding our expectations.
Our organization chose Excelisys to expand our FileMaker Pro database to our off-site team members using WebDirect. Our experience with Excelisys is one of partnership: the Project Manager was focused, attentive to our specific needs, made straightforward technical recommendations, and was available to ensure technical problems were actually solved. The pricing was straightforward and fair.
My experience: as part of a network of non-profit agencies, FileMaker Pro was selected as a database to compile and analyze a directory of national and local programs doing innovative work on child development. A large amount of work went into the design of the project, specification of data elements, etc, but the actual programming of the database was left to the last moment.
I volunteered to put the project into action through FileMaker Pro. I found FileMaker Pro straightforward in terms of database design – but implementing it on a Server with WebDirect access for multiple participants was beyond my scope. And of course, a funding deadline loomed. We researched options on the Internet, found several services claiming FileMaker Pro expertise, quickly interviewed them by phone and selected Excelisys. Excelisys was an excellent choice – far exceeding our expectations.
My first contact at Excelisys was with our Account Manager. The initial discussion was quick and to the point, noting the urgent nature of my problem. Pricing was straightforward and fair. The Account Manager promptly assigned me to a FileMaker Pro Project Manager who was outstanding. I would rate the skill of the Project Manager at a mastery level – in terms of database knowledge in general, FileMaker software knowledge in particular and interpersonal skills.
Our Project Manager quickly identified our particular technical problem and was able recommend the specific steps needed to provide WebDirect access. Within a short time, our FileMaker Pro project was back on track, our deadline was met and we received rave reviews.
I was so impressed with the FileMaker Project Manager that I have continued to use Excelisys to enhance the FileMaker database, especially the report functionality. Even though my knowledge of databases is only at an intermediate level, the Project Manager treated me consistently with respect and promoted my learning and problem solving. I have had the experience before of having tech experts talk in jargon, solve problems without explaining how, which then left me dependent on paying for more consultant time when the next technical problem arose. My experience with Excelisys is one of partnership: the Project Manager was focused, attentive to my specific needs, made straightforward technical recommendations, and was available to ensure the problem was actually solved. I also like Excelisys' use of BaseCamp as a way to keep all the conversations in one place – it is easy to track the process of problem identification and resolution. I give Excelisys my highest recommendation and plan to continue to consult them for other projects including upgrading our web site. I was charged very fairly for the time spent on the project.
I just want to say that my first experience with the Exelisys team was outstanding. On a scale from (1-5 and 5 being great) I give them a 5+.
From the moment of my first call to this company I felt I was in good hands. I'm a very type A stressed-out person when it comes to business and I have to say that my Project Mgr. Greg Furry and my Lead Developer "Levi" aka Laura Vie made me feel very comfortable through the whole process of fixing the problem I had with my FileMaker Pro booking program application.
I book entertainment all over the New England area and I was afraid I was going to lose all of my old and current records but that didn't happen. I love that fact that Levi was able to join me on my computer screen and explain everything she was doing and why she was doing it and have it make sense to a very non technical person (which I am).
Excelisys is my new go to company when it comes to any IT or FileMaker Pro problems I may have moving forward. I also feel like I've made a new friend in this working relationship I now have with Levi and this wonderful company.
Thank you, Paul Costley
I wish I were as creative, fun and humorous as you; but I could not be more happy with Excelisys.
From a development perspective I think I underestimated the hours that would be required to complete the base level of this project, but that's not something I can really fault you guys with.
The only other issue from a customer and cost-benefit direction is the role of the project manager given that this is a smaller project (dedicated to one developer).
It would be nice to have a better idea of who is responsible for what aspect of the project and also to prevent any duplication of effort. Just me nit picking but having both the developer and project manager tutoring me on creating layouts in the shell files seems a bit overkill.
Overall though, I'd say Excelisys has been very responsive, addressed the requirements of my project with careful consideration and a pleasure to work with. Thanks for all the work so far guys!
Consummate professionals who calmly dissected the problems and produced some innovative solutions...
eXcelisys has a talented group of software consultants. We used them for a custom database program that was efficiently completed by a single developer.
The level of communication regarding timelines, deadlines and action items with our assigned consultant was outstanding. As with any large software project, we ran into some issues early on – our developer was the consummate professional who calmly dissected the problems and produced some innovative solutions to keep things moving along.
Their pricing model is also reasonable and fair. We will have no qualms about using them in the future – I do highly recommend them.
Excelisys was great at creating a FileMaker Pro solution for us from the ground up. They anticipated what we needed and got it up and running.
We were using a very old version of FileMaker database to keep track of our bike tours and registrations. It was proprietary and we were not able to make any changes to the system ourselves, yet it was completed outdated on an old version of FileMaker.
Excelisys created a new solution for us called Tour Tracker on a current version of FileMaker and did a great job of migrating our old data to the new solution. We’ve had few and minor problems with our current system since it’s been implemented and have been very happy with it.
The website was up and running, and was a hit the first day of the conference! They saved the day again even under the most extreme pressure.
We just opened a subsidiary company and we were invited to sponsor a conference and by doing so we knew we would get an extreme amount of exposure. We knew we had to get a new website designed and up and running.
We contacted Christo and Kurt and informed them of what we thought was going to be the impossible and we were ready for the worse.
Because of our past experience, we should have known better. They immediately put me in touch with Katie and she designed it beautifully and exactly like we spoke of in only one conversation.
The website was up and running, and was a hit the first day of the conference! They saved the day again even under the most extreme pressure.
