Alliance: a union or association formed for mutual benefit, esp. between organizations.
Friends, we’ve made some professional alliances with some talented organizations. And like the above definition suggests, these alliances were created not only for our mutual benefit, but for yours as well.
At eXcelisys, we specialize in custom development and business process consulting. But when it comes to stuff that would take us off of our core competencies, we’re smart enough to enlist the help of our brilliant allies.
If you want to consider other technologies for your custom solution, or you want a place to park your current Web or WAN database application, we have partners that can help meet your needs. Rest assured, they’ve been put through the eXcelisys wringer; they’ve been subject to our interrogations and our due diligence testing methods. In other words, they’ve passed the eXcelisys test.

Goya offers two incredible FileMaker Pro developer tools, Base Elements and Refresh FM, that we have found to be very useful in our FileMaker Pro development services..
Goya has been developing FileMaker Pro databases for over 12 years now. We’ve seen FileMaker Pro through from version 3 to the latest version. There aren’t many Australian FileMaker based companies with such a long history and a comprehensive set of development experience. Goya is one of only seven Partner level FileMaker Business Alliance members in Australia and one of the few that have multiple developers certified in every version of FileMaker Pro. They are recognized worldwide for their expertise and proficiency with developing quality productivity tools.Base Elements – Everything in your entire solution is imported, everything is cross referenced, and it’s all open and accessible for you to search, list, sort, display and relate to every other object. This allows you to get the answers to the questions about a FileMaker Pro solution. The database for your database; Allows you to see a list of all of the layouts in an entire solution, find all of the scripts that do import script steps and print them out, find every button on a layout that’s calling a particular script, and list all of the layouts, see every tooltip calculation across all your files, and know every place a Global Variable is used in a solution.
Refresh FM – An importing automation tool for FileMaker Pro developers. It streamlines and automates the import process of a live data solution into an empty “Development” version of the same solution. Because it’s automated and comprehensively error checked, it allows the developer to know in advance they won’t miss any steps and guarantee the process performs as expected. RefreshFM can be used on any FileMaker Pro solution, and it doesn’t require any changes to the original solution.
