Amazing database work at very fair price with limited techno geek understanding required for end user.
Extensitech created a database for my last company Apartment Express Corporate Housing, Inc. that managed ALL ASPECTS of the company. It helped us grow from nothing in 1999 to being ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in America in 2004-2005 (#170 in 2004). Because of the work done by Extensitech our company was super efficient and we were able to sell out to a regional firm that wanted our company and software. I made somewhere above a 2000% return on the money invested in the database just on the sale not counting the money made over the years in operational efficiency.
Fast forward to 2008 when we started our new company Stress Free Property Management, Inc. We of course went back to Chris Cain and Extensitech for our software needs. Chris being the ever honest consultant actually advised us to choose an off the shelf product for our primary software as it was a cheaper solution (He made no money). We have been very happy with the advice he gave us on this.
For other projects outside our primary software we have used him as the developer. As a limited example he developed a Filemaker Database for us that interacts with data we get from public sources to market to potential clients. This database connects to multiple websites like Zillow, Courthouse, and Property Appraiser to give us a competitive advantage in multiple aspects of the real estate business. I'm not giving out much detail here as some of this is trade secrets but believe me when I tell you Chris Cain and Extensitech can understand our needs and always come up with ways to use technology beyond what I can even imagine. They save us hours a day in efficiency and we make thousands (probably hundreds of thousands) a year for our company and clients based on his work.
I'm happy to provide this reference to anyone considering using Extensitech for database work provided they aren't in the real estate business in Tampa. If you are a property management company or real estate company in Tampa considering using his service I highly advise you don't (as I don't need the competition). Anyone else feel free to contact me with specific questions and if you choose Extensitech for your project you won't be dissapointed.
