We know that great consulting begins with good listening! By listening to each other, we can find the pain points and get your business flowing more smoothly.

Knowing what questions to ask and finding all the blind spots are core strengths we bring to the table. This, paired with a solid understanding of current technologies, allows us to maximize the return on your investment.

The broad experience we have gained from working with a very diverse clientele is one of the things that sets us apart as a leader in the community. This grants an ability to see past the specifics to recognizable patterns that reveal areas which can be optimized.

Watching and listening to your daily workflow as well as getting underneath to discern why things are the way they are allows us to apply our experience to create more optimized flows for your whole team.

Not only are we FileMaker Certified from versions 9 through 2023, but we work hard to stay on top of current web technologies and integration options. Having a wide range of tools in our "tool belt" means that we can choose the right one for the job.

We are strong believers in the power of FileMaker's Workplace Innovation Platform, so we work hard to hone our skills in that area.

Whether your whole team wants training or just a few key members, we have the ability to ensure all are comfortable with the FileMaker platform in general as well as your custom solution.

Training your team to take over more of the development of your custom system is a great cost-saving and empowering step. Whether you need to create a simple report or add new functionality, we will be there to help you plan and train your team to do as much or as little as you desire.

Often your information needs to work with several programs in order to get the most out of it. Lack of integration can result in double or triple entering of data into different systems, wasting time, and opening more avenues for data entry errors. Integrating other systems into your custom software is one of our specialties!

There are an abundance of exciting possibilities with integratable APIs to empower your data to do incredible things. Some examples of this include communicating with accounting software, mapping and routing address data, validating and correcting addresses (including national change of address data), email sending campaigns, and many, many more.

Tap into years of FileMaker experience with us and learn how to innovate your workplace. Whether you are a novice needing help with your first report or a seasoned developer who just needs help getting over a bump in your development road, we can empower you to get to the next level. Coaching offers the advantage of either seeing it done in front of you or doing it yourself with guidance so you know you're making the right steps at every moment.

A thriving business is dynamic, undergoing changes in workflow and rules regularly. Developing an intuitive solution for your workplace is often just the first step. We will be there to support you as needs arise, ready to keep things running as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Early this year, I took on a project to update the company's File maker import and distribution solution. I feel so lucky that I connected with Mike, since our first conversation, I knew he was the right person to take on this challenge. He was responsive to my calls and kept me on track to get the project moving forward. Mike has a keen understanding of the company's processes and workflow, and he built an impressive Dbase with automation that will make our office more efficient. read more

Luz Cazeneuve, Operations Manager - Dastech International

Empowered Data Solutions has been involved in the development of our database systems for approximately 18 months.

We run a business in the construction industry and our processes relating to sales, product management, safety and quality control are both onerous and complex. Using the Filemaker platform EDS was able to transform our business’ processes from a disjointed, multi-software and compartmentalised system to one that is more fluid, cohesive and efficient. As a result, we now have a system that is making it easier for us to scale our business as the demand for our product increases.

I’ve particularly enjoyed EDS's attention-to-detail, unrelenting perseverance to find solutions to complex issues and their support to work in with our budgetary requirements when necessary. Michael's skills and passion for database systems would be of great benefit to any prospective client.

Michael is a detail oriented developer with an in depth understanding of current techniques & technologies to enable Filemaker to be used as an enterprise level database serving a web enabled front end.

Paul Krahulec, Director of Operations at USASA

Michael has always been a pleasure to work with. His high skill level and fast paced work has allowed our business to implement database updates and expansions without effecting staff with downtime. Michael is personable and understanding of our organization's needs. I look forward to continuing to work with Michael for years to come.

Nico Secunda, Managing Director - Dance of the Deer Foundation

Excellent, detailed knowledge of advanced Filemaker development. Steps are extremely well documented and organized. Great use of advanced scripting features. Delivers on-time.

Harold Radin, Senior Programer analyst - Meritage Medical Network

In my 8 years as an executive in the high tech industry and 4 years as an executive in the real estate industry, I've met few software developers who are as talented, creative and responsive to customer needs as Mike Wallace. Mike is that rare person who can single-handedly serve the role of project manager, top Filemaker programmer, web developer, creative business partner and problem solver - all in one. For the past 3 years Mike has single-handedly developed a Filemaker database solution which has revolutionized the operations of our large Bay Area property management firm. Not only is Mike in the top echelon of Filemaker developers, he also is an excellent web developer, singlehandedly building our industry-leading website which is powered by Filemaker on the backend. Mike has also developed a powerful parallel mobile website which is utilized by our staff in the field, which they access from their mobile phones (both Android and iPhone) and iPads. Mike has a remarkable ability to quickly immerse himself into the business processes and workflow of a business and pro-actively come up with ingenious solutions and designs to improve and automate the business. Throughout our work relationship Mike has always been extremely responsive to our needs, readily available, and a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend Mike highly enough -- you will not find a better Filemaker developer or business process problem-solver
