Our process is built around you, just like your software should be.

Our Development Process

Our development process has been honed over the years to keep you involved with the development of your new software every step of the way.

FileMaker Pro on Desktop

We split our development process into 5 phases: Discovery, Proposal, System Design, Project Build, and Project Launch. Our goal is to guide you through this process to help you achieve your desired outcomes.

Our process for larger projects can be thought of like a bell curve. You can expect us to spend about 10% of the overall project time on Discovery, 10% on the Proposal, 25% on Design, 45% on Build, and 10% on the Project Launch.

Each week, you will have scheduled conference calls or on-site meetings with our team to make sure everyone is on the same page about the project's timeline and desired outcomes. In each meeting, you can expect our team to present their work and make improvements based on your feedback. We're strong believers in involving clients in their own transformations: our goal is to give you the tools you need and guide you through the process to your desired outcome.

Whatever your development needs, we'll work together to create a solution that works for you. Contact us and let's discover what we accomplish together.

"We were actually able to add more features than we thought would be possible within our budget. We always experienced a ‘can do’ attitude and DB Services was incredibly patient and easy to work with."

"The new FileMaker custom website interface is very user-friendly and easy to follow for our clients. In addition, it is much faster than the old Instant Web Publishing (IWP) interface. Thank you and all the others who have helped us out at DB Services. I am very grateful for the excellent service you provide us. Its nice to know we can call you for help if we have an issue."

"We needed a solution that would simplify the administration of our responsibilities under our contract with the State of Indiana. We have seen a dramatic increase across the state in the number of potential foster and adoptive parents that have begun the preparation and training process. This increase has resulted in a significant opportunity for children available for adoption. That’s a big win for everyone! And it’s all because we can refer potential parents to the proper state contacts efficiently and quickly."

"Thank you for all of your expertise and valuable help. I am so grateful to have found DB Services."
Linda Findlay
"Thank you for our new database system. We transitioned from a carbon copy paper based system to a digital database. The software has saved us time and money. We used to archive all our jobs in cabinets, now we can look up a job in seconds from anywhere. The software allows us to easily email estimates to our customers in pdf format. In a year there was a return on investment just from eliminating the purchasing of our carbon forms."
Todd Cartmel
"The new system allows us to create and track jobs for customers along with inventory, something we had been doing with separate word and spreadsheet files. Because it’s now so intuitive, new staff members are able to begin using the database immediately without our usual training session and ‘cheat sheets’ for getting around within the file."
