LuminFire specializes in integrating software (a.k.a. making systems talk to each other automatically).
This isn’t easy. In fact, it’s one of the toughest challenges in computer science. The result is more up-to-date and timely information where you need it and less time spent with redundant data entry. Your business saves time and money making it more profitable.
When we tell clients that, for example, we can get FileMaker and WordPress to talk, the response is often “You can actually do that?” …and that’s just the start. We do this kind of work all the time. Think of us as translators and interpreters for information…not just languages.
Any technology that has an API (Application Programming Interface) is something that we can connect to and exchange information in an automated way.
This page lists some of the technologies that we’ve worked with and integrated successfully in Brilliant Solutions for past clients.
You’ll find descriptions of each technology and why it is used along with links to some success stories or specific implementations we’ve done. Over the years, we’ve worked with hundreds of businesses and solutions. We didn’t have time to write them all up. Just because there’s not a story here doesn’t mean we can’t help or haven’t worked with that technology. It often means we’re too busy building helpful solutions for our clients that we haven’t gotten around to have writing it up yet.
We’re platform agnostic when it comes to working with what you have in place. When we have a choice of technologies we’ll see if WordPress, Laravel, or FileMaker (or our other favorite options) will work — as they do help to solve a majority of business problems. When they don’t work, we’re happy to work with the right tool for your business.
