eX-BizTracker V4.0 is based on two of the original eXcelisys FileMaker Business Tracker versions; BizTracker Pro and eX-BizTracker v3.0 (created by eXcelisys for FileMaker Inc.) Nearly 95,000 have downloaded the FileMaker Business Tracker, becoming one of the most popular free templates available for download from FileMaker, Inc. Developers and end-users found the GUI and feature-set very attractive, as it offered their clients and employers a “jump-start” advantage in building intuitive custom solutions.

eXcelisys made several needed improvements to the original FileMaker Business Tracker and released their own versions in 2006 called the eXcelisys Business Tracker and Business Tracker Pro; incorporating the use of the Web viewer engine, a better multi-user foundation, tweaked report interface, AP and AR modules, and several other foundational enhancements.

Then in 2008, they added over 20 new enhancements, features, and functionality and released V2.0. But this time they did something else: they made the solution available for free and completely unlocked! “We love the opportunity to give back to the FileMaker development community from which we have received so much support over the years,” says Christo, eXcelisys Founder/President.

Now in 2012, eXcelisys has upgraded its flagship jump-start business tracking software solution to take advantage of the many new features introduced in the newly released FileMaker Pro 12.
