We design and build Filemaker database systems — both large and small — to meet specific client needs. Our solutions are compatible with standard and popular desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
We work with you on design. Then we build attractive and efficient websites which interact with your Filemaker databases.
We use ODBC and Filemaker Server 13 to build data bridges and synchronization tools to help keep your data clean and consistent across systems.
We develop your data systems using cloud computing for system stability and device-independent interface. This construction makes your systems readily accessible to all your staff members.
We migrate data from outdated and constrained databases. We spend time upfront working with you to understand your unique data situation, and we solicit your feedback throughout.
We build online payment processing tools leveraging Authorize.net and PayPal services.

"DAVE WALTON and CORESYSTEMS KNOW SCHOOLS AND THEIR NEEDS. They understand us, from Admissions through grades and comments. I can't imagine working with anyone else."
Doug Fodeman, Director of Technology, Brookwood School
"CORESystems has revolutionized the way our school operates. Teachers, administrators and staff have all benefited from the care and personal attention that has gone into our customized system."
Tom Gromak, Database Administrator, Watkinson School
We built a database which pulls down data from Raiser's Edge, Whipple Hill, and a Filemaker system. It performs comparisons of data and automatically delivers discrepancy reports each evening.
"The module, designed and implemented by CORESystems, was a huge breakthrough for us that we had needed for many years.
The new system coordinates the ability to have a data-dump from multiple sources and merge them into one database - from which we can compare fields based on stored mappings.
It also performs a nightly refresh of data and emails a report about it.
The automatic nightly report is functionality the school did not have before and it is invaluable in trying to keep two non-talking databases in sync."
— Katherine Schulze, Director of Technology
We built a database and website to manage a complicated after-school program enrollment system. The database makes use of data from existing Filemaker system which ensured the integrity of the historical data and made the project more cost-effective for the school. The office staff has a direct interface to the new system for generating rosters, recording attendance, generating billing lists, communicating with instructors and communicating with the parent community. Parents use the website to enroll their children in after-school program and after-care offerings on both a consistent and drop-in basis.
"The new system allows us to keep our flexible care offerings to parents, while not exhausting staff resources in updating lists and records. The office can quickly download accurate lists and records that are easy to share with the parent community. The new system is linked to our admissions' database allowing me ready access to student/family information. It is so valuable that the database is built to grow with our programming. The new system is absolutely amazing and there is no going back. The ongoing support is superb."
— Nicole Lehrer, Director of Auxiliary Programming
This Filemaker file draws data from an existing all-school database. Teachers use a neat Tool feature to select Students, Behavior Types, and to enter note for Advisors and parents, who are notified by email. It also includes totals reports by grade, advisor, team color, etc.
"CORESystems helped us develop a system that handles our very complex rotating block schedule, two campuses, 3-4 bus systems and different grade reports for almost every grade. They listened to our needs and the solution they created has been a godsend. Where before we had a home grown FileMaker database that over the years was cobbled together to deal with code of conduct infractions and rewards, we now have a streamlined system with an elegant user interface and which requires little or not maintenance."
— Michael Beesley, Director of Technology
This collection of three Filemaker files is refreshed nightly via ODBC. Files contain an Enroller Tool for managing class rosters. Teachers enter academic reports information into highly customized, class-specific layouts. There are tools for proofreaders to which make reviewing, printing, and PDF'ing elementary.
"Totally Awesome! is how I describe the three report card modules CORESytems built for us.
In particular, the Enroller module cuts my time in half when creating and editing teacher and student schedules for the reports system.
Also, the ODBC-driven reloading of Education Edge data has worked flawlessly for years.
I can't think of anything better."
— Doug Melillo, IT Support & System Operator
"CORESystems' solutions are designed to maximize our productivity while minimizing errors when used by multiple users of varying abilities. Their designs also allow for easy updates and expansion as programs grow in reach and capability."
Sunil Gupta, Director of Technology, Brunswick School
David Walton understands complex educational communities.
An independent school teacher and administrator for 14 years, Dave founded CORESystems to give teachers a way to more efficiently record and communicate student progress so that the better majority of their time was working directly with the student themselves.
CORESystems quickly evolved to include all facets of school administration, including financial tracking, alumnae services, development, afterschool programs and summer camps.
His parting thought when he left teaching of "I knew I could do it [databases] better" became the company culture that exists to this day.
Dave challenges himself and his team to build better, more streamlined, more efficient systems with the highest customer satisfaction.
His enthusiasm has resulted in data systems that are extremely personalized and have unparalleled support.
"You guys rock!"
Christine LaRegina, Registrar, Rippowam Cisqua School
