You are free when you're working with Footprint.
We don't trap or lock our clients in or down with expensive and sticky long term contracts. In fact, we don’t have, need or even want to have any contracts with our clients. You are free to stay for as long as you like us and our work, as you are free to go whenever you like.
We have for this industry very long relationships with our clients as you can see for your self down at the Clients section, simply because they are not leaving. I will try to explain why: the first major factor is that we are from the process- and production industry, we are not from the soil of programmers. I myself was raised in the printing industry, I know what it means when a printing press, computer system or a assembly line does not work and the huge konsekvensens that coses. This I a major problem companies experiences when they go to meetings with programmers asking for a system produced that are going to solve their manufacturing problems. The programmer just can’t relate to the reality of their industry. We don’t have this problem, code and systems to us is just the tools to solve the clients problems.
We help our clients whenever they need our help without support agreements, we don’t need a piece of paper to help you out when you find your self in a bad situation. Footprint is not after your money, we are after your projects, we work for, earn and deserve your money. All work we do for you we report in a detailed list every month making it posible for you to track back every single cost.
Integrations of all kinds to other systems occupy a great deal of our time now days, all wants to connect to all there is to integrate to basically. No wonder, it saves a great deal of time.
Last and most important is that we are very experienced and realistic people when it comes to project management meaning that your system will get done and not ending up collapsed at the IT-graveyard together with the money spent.
A very experienced team combined of great knowledge and skills.
I started Footprint in 2010 Sweden and moved to México the following year with the main focus of continuing developing FileMaker solutions, which has been my main work tool for the last 25 years. Server, database administration and hosting clients' solutions and customer relations are also sorted under my responsibilities.

Their systems, projects and the work we are helping them with.
Footprint develops tailor made systems that fits and works in the organisation specifically for each and every client.
PHP is a language that has been around for a very long time, and will be around for even longer. All the well known systems like Wordpress and Joomla was programed with php. It’s a part of all Linux and Unix systems and therefore it's a part of the Apache webserver. And FileMaker is using php for custom web solutions, that we just love. Alan is our in depth php-expert.
Since this platform is such a big part of what we do it deserves and needs it’s own section. We have our own FileMaker Servers located in Texas and Stockholm, where we host and develop our clients solutions. The staff at Footprint have great skills and long experience in developing systems at this platform, and we profoundly enjoy working with it.
Another unik aspekt with us is that we also do Graphic design and PrePress, making it possible for you to merge two related areas to the same provider. We are experts in graphic production and color management so you get the right results and quality. We can plan, produce, lead and connect you with the right printing companies in México and Europe.
Today we can’t develop or hardly even update an existing system without include at least one integration. Most systems now have great API’s making it fairly simple from a technical point of view exchanging information. The most popular integration is integrating with the clients economical system, delivery systems etc. You can even integrate with Slack. The most used and popular method is REST Json but XML and SOAP is still in use.
Thanks again to FileMaker it’s fairly “easy” for us to build systems that stretches over multiple devices. But don’t you forget about pdf’s and the printed word just quite yet. We arrange so you or your graphic designer can integrate and import your data directly into an Adobe InDesign template using xml producing a product sheet or a complete catalog. This makes it possible for you to update your material more frequently and for haps publish and print the content in several languages.
More than 10 times faster than every other ERM oriented development platform as the beauty is in the combination of design, coding and performance.
Don't waste time and money using other platforms and change to our system. Your migration process is our specialization.
