For more than two decades, and over two thousand projects, we have delivered custom FileMaker apps to teams of web, mobile and desktop users, across a wide range of industries. Beezwax is a Claris Platinum Partner (previously FileMaker Platinum Partner), designated Reseller and Trainer, with Certified developers through FileMaker v19. And we're excited to be part of a new chapter as FileMaker Inc. becomes (again) Claris International, Inc.
Working with you, our software development teams build products and solutions for mobile, desktop and web.
As your business grows, so too does your FileMaker application and user base. Global teams and remote work require business applications to be optimized for these evolving patterns of demand. Whether you are building a new application or maintaining an existing one, Beezwax has the tools, experience and resources to deeply assess and optimize FileMaker application performance.
Our design team builds on your product strategy, either established or new, to craft the experience from Branding to UI to UX design. We make sure your product has the polish and intuitive experience it needs to shine.
We began as a FileMaker shop, and as the web grew, so did we. Our global customers have always been a driving force: in such a competitive arena, no one can thrive on a single platform. Modern, native web technologies deliver at a global scale.
UX Design is a broad discipline that includes system analysis, prototyping, user studies, planning, UI development, creating personas and more. When you interact with a system, how do you feel? How effective are you? Good UX maximizes the satisfaction and effectiveness of the user.
iOS and Swift, FileMaker, Mobile Web and more – we can take your app from idea to App Store, or build a robust backend for your team of mobile users.
We build interactive dashboards, integrate Tableau with existing data sources, and curate your data into visualizations that reflect your business intelligence.
Thoughtful software is the cornerstone of computing: the beginning, not the end. Great software demands approachable, rewarding interfaces. Without them, people resist using computers; This is a design failure, not a human one.
Beezwax prizes visual clarity, but interface design isn’t purely aesthetic. It’s about grasping the interplay between people and the information they generate and consume. It’s about intuiting and promoting real users’ needs. Ultimately, it’s about improving the relationship between people and work.
Website and online services provide endpoints to send and receive data, in a standard format. Integrate your software application with external resources, securely and efficiently.
Making the most of our twenty-year working relationship with FilleMaker Inc., we can process orders of FileMaker products for you.
For your organization, is email a powerful tool or a troublesome burden? Either way, email is such a critical element of your business communication, let's find ways to tame this beast and translate its wildness into efficiency and power: Integrate email into your database, mobile app or web application, using it for notifications, in document workflow, for marketing, and even for automated input and output.
In 2007 we chose Rails as one of our core development platforms and have been happy with the choice. We have been very proud to be part of the maturation of Rails and supportive technologies.
We bring you modern UX, design patterns and best practices because good design is always a goal, from how software looks to how it works for users.
Many systems we've built started in Excel, Numbers or Google docs. Individuals quickly collect data in spreadsheets, but are challenged to securely share their work with team members, across an organization.
We can convert your spreadsheet collection, going far beyond Excel. Custom business apps can support multi-user workflows with cross-platform interfaces, enable multi-layer security and data validation, tailor reporting and data visualization, integrate email and notifications, link to documents and multimedia, connect with web services APIs, and more. Try that with a spreadsheet.
From setup, deployment and hosting through optimization, DevOps, and security review, we provide a variety of IT Services to support custom development projects.
A major aspect of our work is connecting systems, technologies and services. If it's got an API, we'll connect to it. If it needs an API, we'll build it.
You know it's time to move forward to the current version of FileMaker, but aren't sure of all the steps to do this safely and efficiently. We'll look for the gotchas, using our team's knowledge across FileMaker versions, as well as tools like InspectorPro to identify compatibility issues.
Meanwhile, many new features are only potential -- until you implement them. And, of course, we can help with that, too.
Software ages quickly. Rethinking your system may be daunting, but procrastinating can be costly. Leverage your existing solution with innovations, including a new definition of how you work today.
Mapped out over months (or years) in phases, priorities can line up with budget. We approach redesigns incrementally: improvement with integrity, and future flexibility, comes step-by-step.
Got data over here but you need it over there?
If you can’t access your data everywhere -- and you’re painfully aware of this -- data syncing is one answer.
Move your information fluidly between platforms, places and devices. And if necessary we’ll develop syncing protocols to preserve and review potential data conflicts among a disparate workforce.
Cloud and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) can simplify deployment, and reduce costs and overhead for organizations that rely on custom software apps.
Open source projects are developed with free and public availability in mind. Software development can be driven by communities of developers all working together to make a product better.
Does anyone in your organization ever say "We have always done it this way"? If so, why? This gets to the fundamental question of workflow and how it can be improved with a bit of attention and analysis. We analyze your organization's unique workflows -- and then build applications to optimize it. And guess what - software that gets to the heart of workflow efficiency can be proven to pay for itself.
The security of IT systems is achieved by implementing policy, procedure and technology to ensure that your information is safe. Ensuring security of your information involves analysis of the relative threats and risks and taking appropriate protective steps. Beezwax can help you analyze both internal and external security risks and help you implement the safest possible system.
Before development begins, let's understand goals, target users and plan a roadmap, making product strategy the foundation for product management. After that, what we build makes sense, for all the right reasons.
Agile development acknowledges: we can't know everything up front. Software projects are complex and ever-evolving, requiring a high level of collaboration and flexibility with customers and ourselves. We prioritize delivering software in incremental working units to: encourage feedback early and often; constantly confirm our heading; and adapt to changing winds fluidly. Improvement with integrity comes step-by-step.
Ensure quality through resources focused on testing, analyzing and improving software and the development process.
We provide and support a range of hosting options for web and FileMaker applications: Cloud, dedicated server, and other specialized hosting.
Measure, report on and (especially) improve the performance related to your software, systems, and infrastructure.
Our clients rely on us, not just as programmers, but also as consultants who understand business, technology and workflow dynamics from various perspectives. Our experience delivering applications helps your organization work better, operate more smoothly, and focus on those things you enjoy being best at.
Identifying organizational needs and determining solutions to business problems is key to software and systems development. Technical solutions may also support process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development.
We can translate your data into dynamic visual reports or interactive web graphics to help users more quickly and fully understand information.
Since we build unique applications, we use prototyping to get in sync with you about the plan. C'mon, let's iterate.
We build out wireframes to illustrate information so that it can be understood quickly and clearly, at a glance. Decisions are still being made and ideas solidified. The overall goal is to create a detailed plan outlining what each page or screen will include from a functional standpoint. This includes how content is grouped or arranged, the ways that information will be structured, and how elements will work or interact with one another.
Beezwax is proud to be a Claris Platinum Partner, designated as official Claris Consultants, Reseller and Trainer.
For more than two decades and over two thousand projects, we have delivered custom Claris FileMaker and Claris Connect solutions to teams of web, mobile and desktop users, across a wide range of industries.
