Hickam Helps Companies Push Their Data Around

The owner, Jim Hickam, works directly with customers. As a Certified Colorado FileMaker Developer in versions 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and the current version 14 he offers current, state-of-the-art know how.

HDS has technology partners that add benefit as needed. When necessary, HDS works with technology partners who are expert in various technologies such as Salesforce.com, PHP, JavaScript, MySQL, and other technologies. These technology partners are there to protect clients from data and development loss- not to interfere with the process by creating development issues.

“Easy to Work with” Approach

Having worked with over 500 businesses (in various ways) over the last 30 years, HDS has a better initial understanding of almost any business. This business context awareness means less ramp-up time is required than with programmers who may have little, if any, business experience.

By using analogy and non-technical descriptions, we better communicate the issue at hand. This approach helps clients better understand lengthy and boring technical explanations of issues relative to their solution. By being readily available to the client and by making use of written non-technical explanations and screen shot videos, the client reaches a higher level of understanding resulting in a higher level of success. Less ramp-up time is required.

Budget Driven Pricing

HDS clients find that our solutions pay for themselves very quickly due to the tremendous improvements in their processes. Regardless of the size of the project, company, or budget, HDS is committed to achieving complete satisfaction from concept to completion. For examples of work created by HDS. See Below.

Here are a few Examples of Solutions We Have Created

Shipping Company Accounting

This shipping company is what we call a “FileMaker House”. With over 100 FileMaker databases on their server, they run their business entirely via FileMaker. Of special note is their accounting system. Since they have very special accounting needs, they found that off the shelf systems could not handle their needs. We created a comprehensive accounting system that includes:

  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Check Register
  • Invoicing
  • Cash Receipts
  • Adjustments
  • Numerous reports (too many to mention…)
  • Monthly Balance Brought Forward

Education Oriented Non-Profit

This non-profit designed a comprehensive system that manages its Programs, Gifting, Auto Fleet, Events, Student Participation, and many other datasets. It includes almost everything a non-profit could hope for!

House Painting Marketing/Project Management

This solution follows a customer through the process of having its house painted from the time the customer is a “Lead” to a “Satisfied Customer”. The process informs all parties involved of current status, tracks equipment and material expense, informs the customer of next steps via reminder emails, and financial reports keep management informed of the status of the business.

Equipment Usage and Material Inventory

This solution allows project managers to input equipment usage and materials inventory from the field via their ipad. Management can then invoice the customer and track specific inventory needs and equipment maintenance.
