Jason Sanders

Senior Developer, Partner

I have been developing custom business solutions with FileMaker since 2005 starting with version 7 and I have extensive experience with each subsequent release. I am FileMaker Certified in version 11 through the current version.

I joined Extensitech in 2005, and worked jointly with Chris to design xBase, a base solution that forms the foundation for most of Extensitech’s custom software solutions. I’ve been a contributor to later enhancements and new version of xBase, as well.

The main body of my work has been defined by a very large FileMaker system that stretched the known boundaries of the FileMaker platform and employed some of the most cutting-edge tools available. Through this project, which was originally developed and deployed by another developer, I worked closely with many FileMaker luminaries like Soliant, eConnectix and 360Works as well as the FileMaker Engineering team to troubleshoot, enhance and, eventually, re-develop the solution to take it from its original deployment at a single location with 200 users to its final state at three locations and 1,500 users.

In addition to my work in creating, deploying and maintaining large scale FileMaker solutions, my other specialties include systems integration, document management, contact management, activity management, plug-in deployment and business analysis.

I believe that communication is the key to delivering a great solution and I put his skills as a natural communicator to great use making sure that I understands the clients’ needs and that they know what to expect at each stage of the process.

Ultimately, integrity is hugely important to what I do and you should find working with me, and the rest of the Extensitech team, is a refreshingly open and honest experience. I am proud of our ability to provide fantastic value to our clients, and we achieve that by making sure that there are no surprises and that we deliver on-time and under-budget.
