Publisher of Nutshell and Ultra-Plus database programs


Our Services


  • Database Management's critical component is it's design. Design your database correctly and you open up the possibilities for future enhancements. Design it poorly and you limit what you can do and increase your work load. Database Design therefore requires a great deal of experience and skill. Installing new systems and servicing existing systems are a significant part of our business.


  • You never know if a piece of software is to your liking until you use it. We use the Spiral Development method to specifically address this issue. We build a little and you play with it....you and your users are involved from the beginning throughout the entire process. No surprises at the end or comments like "I thought it was going to..." or "How come it doesn't...". FileMaker is only limited by your imagination; that's why it has numerous reviews as "best database". We can help you get there.  Got a question...give us a call.  We would be happy to give you some insight.


  • Need to access your database from anywhere? Hosting your database allows you to access your database from anywhere just as though it were in your office. We provide multiple rotating backups with an ability for you to download a copy at any time. Save time and money by eliminating the need for server hardware and software. A high speed DSL or Cable internet connection is required.


    We'll convert your old database into a contemporary business powerhouse. If you're already on Nutshell/Ultra-Plus, newer version of windows will not support the use of Nutshell & Ultra-Plus, and our proprietary NU Conversion Utility makes upgrading seamless. For each license of the upgrade, we will convert up to 2 files at no charge. Additional files can be converted at a discounted rate. If your database is on a different platform, upgrading to FileMaker is as easy as it gets.
