Web and Mobile Applications, Database Development, Change Management.


Film Skills offers software development as one of our specialty services. We build applications for clients that boost productivity by shifting some of the operational work over to a computer. It doesn’t mean a computer can do your work for you though!

Its amazing the amount of productivity that can be gained from even a simple database application. Some of the use cases we see most often are:

1. A database that stores customer information and allows clients to run basic reports against such information (i.e. A report to show all clients who have purchased over $200 worth of products). This is very powerful information that can assist with Marketing.

2. Online E-commerce portals that allow your customers to pay you online securely for your products or services

3. Helping businesses eliminate a lengthy paper process.  Custom applications that allow clients to send and receive documents for digital signing  - cutting down the time of sending and retrieval of paperwork by weeks or even months.
