Excelisys has been forging software friendships since 2001. Some refer to us as “Technical Translators of Software Solutions” or “the Siri of Software”. We humbly prefer to think of ourselves as the “Software Whisperers”.
When commercial software solutions just don’t do it for your organization, let our top-notch software design and development pros build the right business application, customized to meet your wildest desires! We can customize your web, mobile, and desktop application to work the way you work ~ fast and efficiently! Let’s discuss your software solution needs today!
You know your business inside and out, but determining which software best serves your business can be a daunting task! Maybe you tried developing your own solution in-house, and it came up short. Count on Excelisys – whether you just need a little hand-holding ~ or a lot! We’re here for you with experience, advice, and coaching for your ideal software solution.
Let’s face it: stuff breaks, links don’t always link and those pesky internet goblins invade at the most inopportune time. When errors need to be addressed, bad code needs taming, or things don’t work like they used to, leave it to us to put your Humpty Dumpty back together again. We can rebuild, better, stronger, faster…
Security updates that used to happen once in a blue moon now seem like a weekly or even a daily occurrence! Or maybe you have some old code beneath your web site or software application that could be modernized to conform to new standards and practices. Has the ole “wouldn’t-it-be-cool-if-we-could” feature list grown to the point of “it-can’t-wait-any-longer”? We have helped 1000’s of folks, just like you, with their software stuff. From websites and web applications to FileMaker Pro database solutions, we help maintain their ability to stay agile by providing tweaks and streamlining old processes and code to improve efficiency. Aside from custom development, this is another one of our fortes. We love making things work better! Let us roll up our sleeves and whip that old stuff into shape for you!
When you’ve tapped the power of Excel as far as it can take you and you’re ready to move to a relational database… When you can’t access Access anymore and you are ready to slide into a more robust and user-friendly database framework like FileMaker Pro… When you have to move information from here to there and can’t afford a hiccup…. When that old static website needs to be updated to a more modern responsive content management system like WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal… When shifting from old to new software and you still want to be able to access legacy data… Yeah, we do that.
Diverse business activities often result in an array of unique software applications, each powerful in their own sphere but crippled by poor communication with other software vital to your business.
Adding power to each keystroke, magnifying its ability to produce greater results with less effort…that’s what we do. Whether it’s creating an interface with shipping services such as UPS, FedEx and UPS, or intertwining telephony and database records to create powerful prep, process and reporting tools, streamlining effort can mean the difference between being profitable and not.
Let’s face it. Sometimes software just doesn’t play nicely together. We invite all of your software buddies into the same sandbox and seamlessly integrate WordPress with FileMaker with Magento eCommerce with WooCommerce or ZenCart (to name a few) into efficient solutions that make sense for your business. We help your software systems serve you instead of the other way around.
When you have two systems needing to act as one…if your desktop applications need to fluidly share info with online or mobile application solutions… whether it’s sharing calendars, accounting or other productivity tools, when this needs to work with that… That’s where we really shine!
There were some misunderstandings and problems in the first phase of this project, but through the cool-headedness of Christo, Kurt, and Duane we were able to communicate and negotiate a mutual conclusion and continue the project.
After about a year's lapse, we started modifications and upgrades, which have gone very smoothly. Your staff is very easy to work with, they respond quickly and I think are creative in their solutions.
In working up the estimates, I believe Duane was very creative in developing the solutions knowing our extremely limited development budget.
If I post something in their PM system, I know I will receive a response from Duane and/or Kurt very quickly, with good advice and suggestions. This current phase of the work has been most pleasant.
I look forward to working more with Excelisys!
Excelisys has been great to work with. Their response time is prompt and have been extremely innovative on our project over the past several years.
We set out to build a proposal system for our products which turned into a fairly complicated process due to state rules and product variations.
We initially had a "middle-man" and when that contract ended we elected to stay on with Excelysis. The Lead Developer we work with, Ken Morehead, has been extremely willing to work with us on finding ways to sometimes make what seems impossible possible. Ken has essentially become an extension of our IT team, working with us to upgrade versions and train on functionality.
I was having some issues with programming some more complex items in a FileMaker Pro program, so I contacted Excelisys and Levi hooked me up with Doug West.
He was amazing; Always professional, polite, prompt and extremely knowledgeable!
I would recommend Excelisys to anyone looking for support with their FileMaker Pro projects!
Oregon State University
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!
Cinema Camera Rentals
The eXcelisys team helped me envision, develop, and implement a full inventory system that my business needed to move forward.
As the rental manager for Cinema Camera Rentals I could see what this business needed to move forward but unfortunately lacked the necessary skills to build a system that would work for us. Thankfully, I was able to transfer my vision to the team at eXcelisys who could to take my ideas, add some of their own, and build a fully customized FileMaker Pro database solution that would be able to streamline day to day operations of the business.
I am very thankful for everyone I met at eXcelisys, but I owe a big thank you to Doug West and Rob Poelking who were not only the driving force behind the development of the system, but also the individuals who were able to brainstorm with me about the obstacles that I faced and how to best confront them. Between the countless phone calls and emails, we were able to create a system that both I and my co-workers can confidently use on a day to day basis.
My project may be finished for now, but I know there will be new things to add in the future. When that time comes I know I won't have to hesitate to reach out to the team at eXcelisys to begin that next phase. Thanks again for all of the help!
The site was built exactly how I asked, with a very quick turnaround time.
My small company has continued to expand, and we recently needed to create a new website.
After talking to several local website developers, each of whom had their own limitations, backlog of work, and overpriced quotes, I asked Excelisys if they could design a website for me since they had already built a FileMaker database program for me the previous year.
The site was built exactly how I asked, with a very quick turnaround time.
Katie and Abhi were really easy to work with and even gave me multiple ideas on how to improve the site with little to no extra cost.
I would recommend Excelisys to anyone.
Forester Benefits Management
It has been a very good experience and the end product works well.
First off, I think your own site is excellent. When looking for a developer I couldn’t believe how many folks had horrible sites but were competing to build mine - your site was clean, professional, full of details but not too busy; in a phrase, exactly what I wanted mine to be.
Account manager: Rick has been great. He has been easy to talk to, a great listener, and has been honest and up-front with me through every aspect of the build. I hate passive aggressiveness with a passion and appreciate how straightforward Rick has been at every step.
When I forgot an aspect of our contract and stepped outside of the bounds of it he called me on it immediately, but did so gracefully and professionally. This is someone I can work with.
He has also been patient with my delays with a build that is probably a bit outside of what you normally see; I’m not yet ready to launch and am okay with taking a little bit longer to develop my solution slowly - while this has contributed to our nearly two-year relationship now, I’ve never felt rushed and appreciate that you’re working with my timeline.
Project manager: Kurt has been good; I think that our relationship hasn’t faced the need to develop as deeply because Abhi has been far more involved, independent, and easy to communicate with than I get the impression the average developer is.
Since Abhi is so independent Kurt is rarely required to step in and interact directly; this is one of the very few things I would change.
Not seeing Kurt in action keeps me from understanding what he specifically brings to the fight; I can understand what Rick, Abhi, and Nick’s roles are, but I’m a bit in the dark as to what Kurt does other than coordinate start/stop times with me. I’ve never had a single complaint about what I’ve seen him do, I just haven’t seen much.
That doesn’t mean he isn’t behind the scenes working his tail off, it just means I haven’t seen it and therefore I don’t understand it.
Lead developer: Abhi is great. Often I don’t understand exactly what I’m asking for or the technical implications of my request; Abhi does a good job of breaking things down in ways that I can understand and demonstrates an absolute mastery of the coding he’s required to do in every aspect of the builds.
Lead designer: I’ve had very little opportunity to interact with Nick since we had mockups of most of the pages already designed when we started, but I don’t have any reason to complain about his work.
It has been quick, professional, and without errors. Overall build thus far: I’ve been very pleased with what we’ve gotten done so far. I have the general impression that I’m getting more than I’m paying for, and a couple of things contribute to that.
First, we had a bit of an issue with the lead developer who was initially assigned to me (I think his name was Tom?). The situation with him was resolved in a timely fashion, and one thing that I specifically noticed was that I was not billed for any of the time that he took; although I’m sure that cost Excelisys money, none of those costs were passed on to me, as the customer. This spoke volumes.
Second, although this is my first website/database design/build, I get the impression that Abhi works very quickly for a developer and I’m benefitting from his efficiency. The quality of the work has been very good.
There have been several major bugs that I’ve discovered as I’ve thoroughly tested the builds over the past year: some of the functions that were designed simply do not work.
However, I recognize that there’s an inherent tradeoff here - I could demand an absolutely perfect product on the first delivery and Excelisys could deliver it... but that would take a lot of hours of testing that I could just as easily, and far more cheaply, do myself.
I feel like I’m being given a work in progress to evaluate and give feedback on, and that’s exactly how I like it. I have no complaints whatsoever.
Excelisys materials: Everything I’ve encountered has been professional, attractive, concise, and well-designed (in short, the exact opposite of everything I’m used to working with in the federal government).
From the invoice design to the hourly rate handout; from Basecamp to this survey; it has all been incredibly user-friendly. Don’t change a thing.
Bay Cinema Holdings (Gulf Camera)
We are making good progress and I am very happy with the way the project is going.
When looking for a vendor to update our database that was assembled over many years of self taught developing there was much concern if it could be resurrected from the duct tape and chicken wire holding it together.
We chose Excelisys because they took time to understand not only our database but how it was used in the business and what we actually do. We spent a lot of time discussing daily operations and they genuinely wanted to make the database solution work for us, not create a cookie cutter solution.
Outside the difficulties of sifting through the unorganized database we presented, we also relied heavily on third party synchronization for the database. They studied the synchronization software, consulted with the programmers when necessary and were able to seamlessly incorporate and actually improve the efficiency of the synchronization process across all our mobile devices.
After completing a rebuild of our database there were only a couple minor bugs and they were fixed almost as fast as we could post them. The process went so smoothly we decided to proceed with making data available online for our clients.
The design of a website, adding a secure client side with multiple levels of login and incorporating the syncing process was very complicated but again they excelled and diligently worked out any bugs that popped up. The database is an absolute necessity for our day to day operations and it has been solidly improved by Excelisys. The rewards have been profound and have allowed us a new level of creative thinking and service to our clients is now fast and direct.
Collaborating primarily online and via phone was a new experience. A good experience. It allowed everyone to focus and keep track of complexities and progress. It also allowed a terrific group of specialists to be brought together from great distances to produce a very professional, structured, yet fun team. They really feel like an extension of our business. If we could think it up they could make it happen.
We are going on seven years with Excelisys and I can't wait to see what we come up with in the future.
Bloomfield Hills School District
Excelisys helped us achieve a solution that was far better than anything we could even imagine.”
As a school district that was struggling with paper records of students and credits, we approached Excelisys with the idea of using Filemaker to setup a database for our counselors to access on their desktops and iPads.
Our counselors had binders upon binders of student records and classes. They spent weeks after the start of each semester calculating by hand what credits remained for every student.
We were in desperate need of a more streamlined solution! Within a week after starting the project Excelisys had taken our idea and turned into a fully functional solution.
We went back in forth with revisions and tweaks to get it just right. Our developer Michael was absolutely amazing. Very prompt and professional in all of his responses and knew exactly what we needed to get to our end goal.
What was really impressive was at the end of the project he sent us an entire 40 page document that outlined all the work that had been done and instructions on how to use our new solution!
Every single person who has seen this database is absolutely blown away by it.
I look forward to the day when I need to create another project like this so I can work with Excelisys again!
