Branding & Logo

Content Strategy

Many clients come to us with very little content for their websites.  In this case we hire web writers who help the client come up with a single tone and style for their website text.   Sometimes you need a blog, sometimes it’s a newsletters, and sometimes it’s a mail blast. Let us help you craft your best content strategy.

Custom Database Development

JVC provides custom database development services all types of organizations including non-profits. We specialize in building complete solutions in the Claris FileMaker Pro platform.  Our team deploys both small and large applications on both Macintosh and Windows desktops. We service all modern versions of FileMaker® Pro, FileMaker® Server, and FileMaker Go™ (for the iPad and iPhone). We were pioneers in bringing FileMaker databases to the web using PHP, XML, and now the REST/JSON/DATA API.

Built From Scratch

We don’t like to re-invent the wheel.  Before we build a custom database we review your requirements and determine if your workflow fits any existing template.  If not, we will build an application from scratch that will fit your company and workflow perfectly.  Custom database free you from having to adjust commercial solutions built for other industries.  Most clients will achieve greater automation and productivity gains when using a custom application.  

Choose a Premade Template

Sometimes your particular needs can be met using a simple template or combination of ready made templates by Claris or other Claris partners.   These templates may already have essential features like a Contacts, Invoices, Calendar, etc.   Our team will then modify and tailor these templates to your requirements while adding custom modules to complete your solution.   

Maintenance & Updates

Once your application is deployed or rolled out to users it’s a good idea to plan for maintenance and updates.  Claris rolls out a new version every year of FileMaker Pro/ Server and in the future it will be more often.    In addition, your users and external factors may require you update your application like adding a new module like a Calendar, new billing requirements by a valued customer, adding SMS (text messaging), HTML email, Script Servers, etc.  JVC offers SSA (Service and Support Agreements) that provide quick response to system, network or application issues.  

My Process

Define

How does one begin developing good and useful products? Well, you have to find a problem in the status quo and develop opportunities that you can capitalize upon. You must define what you plan on creating — the define phase is aptly titled. You must begin defining user needs, what goals you plan to accomplish and how you plan on positioning yourself within the competition.

Design

Following the definitions of your product comes the creation of concepts, of which is found within the design phase. You will find yourself creating, drawing, sketching and otherwise developing the visual flow of your work flow.This is the skeletal system that will be developed upon throughout the design process. We will build a prototype first then show you samples of other projects and finally see what templates might exist.  From there we build your custom solution that addresses your own company’s workflow.

Refine

With our experience building different custom solutions we will provide at least 3 rounds of revisions to the design to allow you to experiment.  The goal is to improve the original design by making it faster, less clicks, and easier to navigate.  Users can play a pivotal role in this process. 

Build

The build phase is where we take all the information and feedback gathered from prototyping and we begin to build the product with design layouts and build upon our already established front-end coding. Thus, resulting in your final iteration — we put the asterisk solely because there are times we re-visit a “final” product and iterate upon it.
