Click the ‘example applications’ button on the left.

Custom software/a bespoke database is the answer. By automating repetitive tasks, eliminating errors, and being a central live source of info for everyone, it organises your admin for maximum efficiency. You’re in complete control over what it does. No more ‘It’s a shame it doesn’t do…’ or ‘If it only…’ it now can! And the saving on employee time gives you a ROI before your solution is even finished.

I’m as chuffed as nuts!

…was what one happy client said.

Claris’ FileMaker apps, tailor-made

10 tasks done with a single click • Reduces time spent on admin • Saves hassle and headaches • Pays for itself

Do you find yourself:

  • cutting and pasting more than once?
  • using Word or Excel to create estimates, invoices etc.?
  • having Excel compile stats and reports?
  • getting frustrated with off-the-shelf software that limits you?

A relational database (office software, information system, CRM, CMS, ERPS etc. (call it what you will)) will save you time, money, hassles and headaches.

Why? Because it avoids mistakes, errors, multiple copies, out of date info etc. and does exactly what you want.

Written-to-order software

How to use the miracle of technology?

  • Do anything twice? Three times? Automate it.
  • Enter information once, store it in one place and use it many times – automatically.
  • Take control of what your computer does for you

So why not use off-the-shelf software? Here’s what normally happens:

  1. You’ll spends months researching the ‘right’(!) package
  2. Then spend months to learn it & adapt it to your way of working (or adapt your way of working to it)
  3. You and your staff become frustrated and invent your own workarounds on spreadsheets etc
  4. Your new ‘system/way of working’ still introduces errors, duplication and outdated info

The result? Hassles and headaches! Aren’t headaches the reasons why you came to this site in the first place?
And wouldn’t it have been better/more efficient in spending your time and money developing your own?

Custom software for business

Finding information in various spreadsheets and sources might only take you five minutes. But with your new relational database, you’ll be doing it in seconds.

Do that only once a day saves you 21 hours a year. But, if you’re spending half your day doing those type of tasks, you could save 24 weeks’ work a year. Silly numbers? Yes, but true!

How long does it take you to create a single invoice? It used to take me 1/2 an hour. Afterwards I could do all the day’s invoices in the time I walked to the kettle! Automating repetitive tasks is at the heart of your new system. And that’s just for starters…

Your bespoke database/application can revolutionise your processes, including:

  • preparing invoices
  • contact history
  • marketing/sales funnel
  • estimating
  • job preparations
  • ordering
  • stock control
  • time sheets
  • scheduling
  • planning
  • reporting
  • price lists
  • POS labels
  • …and much more

A bespoke piece of business software designed around you and the way you work, will do exactly what you need, when you want it. Plus, it grows and adapts with you as your business grows and develops.

So, exactly how much is your time worth?
