Workplace Innovation Software

We create custom apps that increase efficiency, simplify workflows and improve data sharing

We develop custom apps. We develop them to order, customized for a particular purpose. If you have a problem to solve, we can help you effectively and cheaply. We also develop custom apps to sell: our first custom app manages maintenance tasks via iPad and computer, and is available in beta version now.

Our custom apps can take different forms: they can be web applications; they can be built on the Claris/FileMaker Platform; or they can be both. We develop whatever solution works best in solving your particular problem.

As well as developing custom apps, we also connect them to other applications or web services, such as Mailchimp, Sharepoint, Google Sheets and Microsoft Outlook. Connections can be made using Claris Connect or directly using common application interfaces.

We are a Claris Partner and we are led by a Claris/FileMaker certified developer. As a Claris Partner, we are approved by Claris as suitably qualified to represent Claris in the marketplace. We are also authorized to resell Claris/FileMaker software licenses. Being a Claris Partner with a certified developer ensures that we have the essential knowledge necessary to develop and deploy business or organizational solutions using Claris/FileMaker.

What Our Customers Say

"Workplace Innovation Software developed a custom case management database for our law firm that has significantly increased our productivity. I have worked with a lot of software developers and they are at the very top of that list. They really listened to our problems and took time to understand the nature of our practice and how the database would help us be more successful. They are very creative and are always positive in addressing additions or modifications that we request. Overall, I would not only use this firm again but give them my highest recommendation."
