Mesa Garden integrated their custom FileMaker application with WooCommerce in order to streamline their business selling cacti and succulents. We built a modern e-commerce website so that customers are able to place orders online. The data is synced to their FileMaker application which prevents orders going through for out of stock items as well as allowing Mesa Garden to update thousands of products with the click of a button.

PeopleCare is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization providing services to those whose age or physical condition limits their mobility. PeopleCare came to us using multiple programs to manage their daily operations, including a custom-built Microsoft Access program, spreadsheets, and paper files. To help solve these issues, we outfitted PeopleCare with a FileMaker system that consolidated their programs in to a single, user-friendly location—the type of system where FileMaker shines.
“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.”
Chris Morrison, Executive Director
“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 also 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, Owner
