Transform your business with BrilliantHub!

Leveraging the top workplace innovation platform Claris FileMaker, BrilliantHub (formerly fmIgnite) is a powerful business solution that serves as a solid foundation for your custom business solution.

BrilliantHub can be customized to meet your exact business needs:

  • Built on the flexible, time-tested rapid development platform of Claris FileMaker
  • Integrates with common SaaS products and APIs via BrilliantConnect and BrilliantFlows
  • Supports customized workflows and automated processes to reduce data entry errors, eliminate double entry, and provide a single source of truth for reporting
  • Manages inventory, invoicing, employee time tracking, and company assets
  • Runs on desktops, iOS devices, or via a web browser
  • Stores CRM and vendor data associated with products, services and other business data
  • Hosted in our secure managed cloud service or on-premise in your data center
  • Streamlines user management, authentication, and user roles via SSO (OAuth)
  • Stores documents and image assets in secure and durable cloud storage

Unlike other hosted SasS options, BrilliantHub allows you to:

  • Own your data — even if you move away from the platform
  • Do exactly what you want — we customize BrilliantHub to match your business vs requiring you to change how you work to match other platforms’ pre-defined rigid workflows
  • Build a unique asset for your company that gives you a competitive advantage
  • Innovate and enhance your solution on your timeline — without being held hostage by a vendor’s internal roadmap

Our customers have found BrilliantHub to be the most feature complete, cost-effective, and fully customizable business solution available. As BrilliantHub has over 15,000 hours ($3 million) invested into its development, it provides both an immediate return on investment (ROI) as well as long term value for your business.
