Custom apps

We build powerful custom apps in FileMaker to improve the efficiency and profitability of our clients. Why do we write apps on the Claris FileMaker platform? We do so because of the FileMaker platform’s unrivalled feature-set, powerful tools and core technologies.

Another reason why we develop in FileMaker is because it includes enterprise-grade security with OAuth, MFA, end‑to‑end encryption, HSM key management (FIPS 140-2 L3 certified), WAF, app-level DDoS, internal and external AI-based threat protection and more. (Please go to this page on the Claris website if you want more detail on the security of the FileMaker platform.)

Using FileMaker, we build custom apps that can solve any problem. Typical features that we can include in your custom app are summarised next. If you would like to see an example user interface for one of our apps, please take a look at our ready-made app MENDLOG.

Custom apps in FileMaker

These are the headline features of custom apps made in FileMaker.

Icon for devices


Our custom apps work on desktop computers both Windows and Mac, on mobiles and tablets, and on the web. We adapt the interfaces in our custom apps so that they are entirely appropriate for the device being used. This means that, for example, phone users have a phone-appropriate display rather than having to scroll in all directions to view information.

Icon for connections


Our custom apps connect to Claris Connect, a cloud-based workflow automation service. Claris Connect connects to over 50 popular business applications including QuickBooks, Microsoft365, Google Apps, DocuSign, Slack, Zendesk and Mailchimp. For more details view our Integration page.

Icon for integration


Our custom apps integrate with business databases and websites using a range of technologies such as OData, cURL, FileMaker's own data API, SQL queries and ODBC/JDBC links. Using such technologies enables us to design custom apps that spread the principle of 'data only being entered once' wider than solely the custom app itself.

Icon for dashboard


Our custom apps contain real-time dashboards displaying key business metrics such as orders made per hour, current unrepaired faults, unpaid invoices… anything that you need to review at-a-glance. We also design our custom apps to allow you to drill down into the information that you see: for example, viewing specific orders that are behind a manufacturing summary.

Icon for reports


Our custom apps generate reports that provide deeper insights into the data being captured within the app. The reports can be structured to reflect any performance indicators you are operating within. They can also be sent automatically to the management team at a specified day and time in the week.

Icon for hosting


Our apps can be hosted in the cloud or on a server on your own site. FileMaker Server software can be run on Windows, Mac or Linux servers/computers.
