Web and FileMaker Integration
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.
FileMaker to Web Recommendation
We’re offering a promotion to those considering FileMaker-to-Web integration or migration. For $1,000, we will evaluate your current system and offer our recommendation of which route to the Web is best suited to your goals, budget, timeline, and existing software — and why.
And we’ll also identify the next steps if you want to make this into a reality.
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.
User Interface Design
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.
Cloud and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) can simplify deployment, and reduce costs and overhead for organizations that rely on custom software apps.
Stores, sites, shopping carts, payments, and integration with back-end systems or web services. We build or set up. You sell.
We provide hosting for web and FileMaker Applications.
Web applications, software and systems in general, can be designed to allow people of all abilities to use and enjoy them. When we build things that are accessible, everyone benefits.
Search is a fundamental way to work with data and content managed by your databases, websites or apps. We create elegant search interfaces, and build or implement advanced search tools, so all users get exactly the results they are looking for.
Beezwax will design, build, extend and integrate your WordPress site. We build WordPress plugins, so you can ignore limitations on what seems possible.
Search Engine Optimization facilitates how your site will be found through search engines. Architecture and development methodolgies significantly impact SEO.
Ruby on Rails Development
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.
A dashboard provides at-a-glance views of KPIs (key performance indicators) relevant to particular objectives and/or models. This can be for anything from sales to HR, or from marketing to production.
User Experience Design
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.
Software ages quickly. Rethinking your system may be daunting, but procrastinating can be just as 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.
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.
The measure, reporting and improvement of performance related to your software, systems, and infrastructure.
Responsive Design adapts fluidly to users' contexts, so that using an application feels effortless, even across devices: from desktop to phone, phone to tablet, tablet to laptop and back.
Web Services open up online systems for your solutions to interact with them, returning information as structured data (typically JSON or XML) through an API. Then the fun begins, as you make custom use of data, even mashing up information from multiple Web Services into a single set of customized content for your own use.
Test-Driven Development encourages the conversion of feature requirements to automated tests. TDD increases the level of code quality and ensures that future changes to an application can be made, and tested, with confidence.
Code maintenance ensures that an application continues to meet updated system requirements, evolving integration points, and is free of bugs and other issues.
