Website- Web Application Consulting and Coaching Services
Whether you need a new website or web application, or need to improve your existing web solution, we can help. And while there are plenty of cool tools to give you a jump-start, sometimes they can be quirky or downright obstinate. We’ve been playing with these tools for some time and know their limits. Maybe your best option is a custom web solution. Let’s discuss and see what will best serve both your short- and long-term goals.
WordPress Consulting: WordPress is easy to use and implement, so much so that 22% of new U.S. registered domains run on WordPress. That’s not even counting the sites that have been redesigned using WordPress! But there are tricks that really release its power… and we know ’em! But is it what you really need or want? How do you know?
Joomla Consulting: Joomla has its moments. Yes, it has more stuff than WordPress, but can be a challenge, and it has more moving parts than the Bay City Bombers rollerblade team. So, is it overkill or the perfect fit for your business. How do you know?
e-Commerce Consulting: Need some sort of purchasing option? Would that be Magento? WooCommerce? ZenCart? Which is best for you and why? How do you know?
Which CMS is best? Might be none of the already-produced products above. You might need a complete customized web application with PHP and MySQL….but how do you know?
When you have questions and answers seem elusive, count on the experienced and knowledgeable Excelisys team. Then you will know!
Working with Excelisys and particularly Andy Persons has been great! Andy is always on top of things (even when I haven't been) and responds quickly and succinctly.
Andy does what he says he's going to do, when he says he's going to do it. If I could say the same about my side of the project we would have reached the goal line earlier in the year - I think we might be on the 10-20 yard line now.
A field goal would do it but our goal is a touchdown with the extra point!
One of the things I've learned is just how time consuming the process is for both developer and the client. We're not yet through with many (most?) of our projects but I'm sure we'll get there eventually.
We have a few tweaks still to work out and reports to install (the delay is on my part, not Andy's) and then I'm confident we'll end up with a great product that will fit our needs almost to a T!
Probably the biggest surprise is how fast our hours/$$ are gobbled up. C'est la vie?
My first contact was with Levi, who listened to my lengthy story of how I ended up desperately needing Excelisys' help.
From the first conversation to the hand off to the PM and subsequently the programmer, everyone knew my story, I didn't need to reiterate my needs, my timing, my hesitation, or expectations - Levi had explained it all and everyone understood my goals and more importantly had a plan.
The Excelisys team professes expert level FileMaker Pro knowledge, which I had been promised by a number of other "experts", Excelisys is the one group who delivered. My database looked great on the front end, the back end was a disaster!
They delivered a fully functioning and repaired system utilizing less time than discussed (when does that EVER happen?) and I was left with more time to add bells and whistles I didn't think I could afford. The end result is gained efficiency and productivity.
The only downside was the delay from the point of signed proposal to the mid-week strategy call. I think the total time between discussing my issue with Levi (voted most awesome person in 2013) to my conference with Doug and Ken was 1 week. I wish that process could have been more streamlined.
Overall my experience with Excelisys was total satisfaction! I look forward to a long lasting relationship with this amazing group. I wish all companies found on the internet exceeded expectations as Excelisys has done.
From my view you listened to what I wanted and wrote it down or it was on the message board so it was written down.
I had so many people in other companies listen and then not do anything I said. So I got everything I wanted.
I can’t gauge yet how the users will respond as this will take some time. But I got what I wanted. I try stuff and if it works out or not is a bi product that I know is an unknown. So I got what I wanted and it will help me with an unknown.
I am a very tough person to deal with. And sometimes I don’t even know what I want until a week later. So it is hard dealing with that and trying to solve unknowns and knowing I had better get it right because money is being spent.
Yes, I got what I wanted.
Gillman & Gillman, LLC
Happy with Ken and the Excelisys team for the work we have done over the years on our database upgrades and modifications.
Ken Moorhead has been great in Gillman & Gillman's FileMaker and other database development projects.
While it is always difficult to work with an existing system in a long-standing business, Ken has ably adapted to merge his knowledge of the "latest and best" available options work with our existing system.
We have formed a strong professional relationship that I believe will continue for years to come.
Forester Benefits Management
It has been a very good experience and the end product works well.
My Excelisys team of Laura and Kurt handled my tough campground reservation system project and came up with a great FileMaker Pro solution for my business. They were able to handle all of my curveballs and delivered a great solution that has helped my business significantly.
Each step of the way we worked together to determine what my needs were and how they could meet them. We reviewed every revision of our project and made sure I was pleased with the changes we made along the way.
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!
Consummate professionals - big job or small - always there - always care!
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.
Working with Doug and Rick was a great experience. They both listened to our needs and came up with a solution every time.
I have nothing but rave reviews for Excelisys. This company does what it promises to do and more!
