See all those logos below? Pretty, aren’t they? They represent most of the industry’s current favorite database and website technologies that could help your business run smoother if you know how to use them, and if you don’t, no worries you have us.
Database Driven Software Solutions for the Desktop, Web, and Mobile Platforms.
Deciphering software design services lingo – and the hard work of actually developing your software solution – is what we do day-in and day-out. We’ve mastered “the best of” database and web technologies that enable us to build some of the most efficient and robust software applications.
And we take a very human approach to business software application development.
Unlike the programmer stereotype ~ introverted, oblivious to budget, and hell-bent on using all the latest gadgets ~ Excelisys is fully plugged in to the human dynamics behind creating successful long-term partnerships and phenomenal solutions for our customers. We strive to listen carefully, anticipate issues and avoid pitfalls.
As with any project, it’s important to start with the right foundation. The strengths, weaknesses, history and culture of each of these software technologies should be taken into consideration before developing your custom software application. Determining the right foundation for best results involves addressing these fundamentals:
Are you solving a unique technical problem? Most projects can be implemented with a variety of technology combinations. Some projects require very specific approaches to succeed.
Use technologies that fit your company’s core values. Is your company young, energetic, and cool? Maybe you’re experienced, stable, and trustworthy? What kind of culture do you want your development team to have? Are you of a startup mindset, or more like a Fortune 500?
Don’t blindly copy others’ technology decisions. “Software technology “X” worked for so-and-so, so it should work for us!” is not a good argument. eBay was built with PHP & MySQL, and it “worked for them”. That doesn’t mean you should use the same.
Be aware of industry trends…but don’t be overly influenced. Websites like hotframeworks.com, trends.builtwith.com, and trends.google.com can help you to understand where various technologies stand, in terms of popularity over time. Trends can come and go quickly. Today’s fad could leave you hanging trying to find developers for it in a couple of years.
Keep your options open. Realize that the solution you ultimately build might not be the solution you set out to build. Avoid technologies that limit you when your company changes direction months down the road.
Consider the quality of developers you want to attract. Great experienced programmers tend to use great technologies. But no matter how great a tech-tool might be, you still need a craftsmen to use it.
How important are performance and scalability? Are you testing the internet waters to sell your new widget, or creating the next Facebook?
What’s your marketing plan?
On what platforms do you intend to use your software? Some platforms will make development easier than others.
Know the long-term costs of your technology decision. Be aware of ongoing licensing fees, specialized hosting, developer maintenance contracts, etc.
Discuss your technology needs with a developer who has experience with a wide range of technologies. If you discuss your project with an MS Access expert, guess what they’ll recommend? When you’re a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
In a matter of a short time eXcelisys assigned an IT tech to my project, they contacted me and the work began immediately. We received professional treatment from start to finish.
In addition to our WordPress not working properly after an update from Go Daddy, the IT tech also fixed a few more issues he had seen on his own. I had the ability to access a portal page through their company to track the work as they progressed.
Thank you eXcelisys, for the eXpeditious work and getting our company back on track!
We are very pleased with the website that Excelisys built for us.
Our initial idea of a small website and a simple project estimator was wonderfully transformed by the Excelisys team into an elegant, easy-to-navigate, fast, yet functional one. On top of everything, we now have the best project estimator in the industry. The Project Managers (Geoff and Kurt) came up with interesting ideas that were transformed into reality by an extremely talented designer (Katie) and two exceptional programmers (Abhi and Alex).
Thank you Excelisys for making a small project a success!
We have a complicated FileMaker Pro application connected to an equally complicated PHP web application inherited from another custom development "firm".
Excelisys has been a wonderful partner helping us evolve the software as our needs have changed and grown. We’ve also worked with them to layout the specifications for developing a new system from scratch. They have been flexible to work with, including communication via email, their Basecamp application or GoToMeeting conference calls.
I would readily recommend Excelisys to another business, whether they want to build a custom system from the ground up, or update an existing application.

Processing these orders is so much easier thanks to Excelisys. I can’t sing your praises enough. This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for your company and Doug!
I am extremely happy with my decision to go with Execlisys. I have been working with Doug West for the past few weeks and find him to be very knowledgeable and a wonderful communicator.
He is satisfying all my needs for this Database project.
We have built a very productive relationship when it comes to my BizTracker file. I work with his improved BizTracker file for a couple of days, then I create a series of questions or or ask him to explain why some procedure works or doesn't work. He replies, always within the same day, and sometimes within the same hour.
My questions are answered my confusion with an issue is clarified and I feel ready to move on with more improvements.
My BizTracker file is becoming so customized that I find myself excited to work with it.
When I look back at over 4 pages of correspondence on basecamp I am amazed at how far we have come on this project.
I am very satisfied with your firm and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get control of their company's data.
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.
He has been thorough, listened well, knew when to ask questions, and delivered solutions in a timely manner.
We look forward to working with him more in the future.
