Our increased productivity would not be possible were it not for Steve’s work.
We have been very impressed with HSE's professionalism and innovation. We hired HSE initially to add some features to our FileMaker Pro database and today we have a completely revamped database that meets all of our needs and more. We were not using technology as best we could and Steve has helped us to bring our business into the 21st century. Steve is very responsive. We can always depend on him to respond to our calls when we have problems and then follow-up after he has fixed the problem. Our increased productivity would not be possible were it not for Steve’s work.

HSE was able to clearly understand what I was trying to accomplish, and executed it perfectly, quickly, and within budget.
I looked to HSE to help me design a touchscreen-based queuing system for filming orchestral concerts. My needs were very specific, and HSE was able to clearly understand what I was trying to accomplish, and executed it perfectly, quickly, and within budget. HSE did things with FileMaker Pro I had no idea were even possible, and I remain a very satisfied customer.

Steve Slater was a find, and he is a gem.
Steve Slater was a find, and he is a gem. I found HSE on the FileMaker Pro website to help fix a list of things that were not working at optimum with my database which contains 15,000 skus and related images. Steve had fabulous suggestions, cleaned up my issues, and reprogrammed some of the ways the system worked. Steve has a thorough understanding of FileMaker Pro and its capabilities and can enhance any system. We also found his services very reasonable.

If you are looking for a [FileMaker] database system, I strongly recommend HSE for the job.
Steve is NOT your typical “Yes!!! Man” database [FileMaker Pro] programmer. A very honest man and will even go the extra mile to work with you. So, if you are looking for a database system, I strongly recommend Steve for the job.
Before the HSE, each of our departments (Design, Art and Import) had their own network drive storing data (i.e. Excel, Word, JPG, and TIF documents).Information was shared either through email or literally handing a printed copy to the respective department, making it tedious work just to revise something, with the possibility of errors in between.
Steve sat down with each group and individual team members. After hours and days of listening to all of our needs, he digested and understood the business and proposed what can be done practically and realistically. He came up with a database system that integrated our Design, Art and Import where the information are entered once and the three departments see the same real time data without emailing or printing it out. Our company's process of sharing and passing information all changed. Our new FileMaker Pro system minimizes and saves tedious work, eliminating the possibility of error and saving paper. All in all the database system was more than what was expected and very satisfactory.
Our CEO, CFO and myself are very happy and impressed on the delivery.
