Soliant Consulting's FileMaker practice is both mature and broad. As a full-service consulting firm, we have expertise in all areas of the platform and have refined our team with both individual accomplishment and tested database development best practices.

We work for you

  • Soliant is a professional services firm.
  • As your FileMaker developer, we bill for our time and work on your behalf.
  • You own your FileMaker solutions and all the code within them.
  • We don't have a product to sell: our only agenda is to deliver the best work we can.
  • You'll know each member of the team; we're accessible.
  • You have full access to our tools and servers as we work on your database development.

Working with Soliant

We aspire to be true consultants, rather than simply a FileMaker developer-for-hire, and will couple our deep knowledge of the FileMaker platform with an understanding of your business.

We typically engage with clients in one of two ways, depending on your needs.

Project Based

  • New & Large Projects
    For new projects or larger, discrete development efforts, Soliant will often work in a project-based model where we define the scope of work, budget, and schedule for your FileMaker solution before embarking on development.
  • Development Process
    Led by seasoned Project Managers, our database development projects begin with a design and planning stage followed by development and deployment phases. Learn more about our process...
  • User Experience & Specifications
    Our FileMaker developers often create wireframes to demonstrate how layouts will appear and write use cases to describe system behaviors. For areas that require it, technical specifications clarify non-interface requirements like systems integration or security needs.

Service Based

  • Maintenance & Support
    For existing FileMaker solutions (either created by us or another team), you can opt for a flexible approach where you commit to a regular schedule of work that our team tackles on a priority basis.
  • Small, Iterative Changes
    We get to know your system and make evolutionary changes as your organization requires. Soliant’s FileMaker developers are well-versed in rapid development techniques and can leverage the platform's inherent flexibility.
  • Task-Driven Work
    You'll drive your priorities by queuing tasks for the team, and we'll help keep things organized with our online tools.
