Custom software isn’t for everyone.  Just the lucky ones.

Wouldn’t it be great if your information systems worked exactly the way you do?  They can.

These days there are a lot options for business application software--just not a lot of good ones.  Either it’s hard for your users to understand, overbuilt for your specific needs, or just plain difficult and your team ends up wasting valuable time getting caught up in workarounds because your IT system or provider can’t accommodate the way you do business.

Everyone does business a little differently.  With our experience, we can build you a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to manage your leads, schedule calls, send emails to prospects with special detail to the nuances of your marketplace.  We can help you set up data-driven, custom websites for your customers where you control the back-end and they control the front-end.  How about managing an event with ticket sales?  If you need to integrate your database or website with various online payment processors, we can help there too.

The possibilities are endless.  All it takes is an idea.

Whether it’s the heart of your small business, or the missing piece to your large-scale enterprise system, HS can solve those tough IT problems when you don’t have the budget for a full IT department, or it’s already fully committed with other projects.

Cloud-based means easily accessible (anywhere there’s Internet), hassle-free reliability.  We consult with you on the size and scale of your project, and take care of the IT so you don’t have to.  You just get the benefits of easy-to-use software with the precise information and functionality of your specific business, with menus, screens, reports and graphs just the way you want it.

And when it’s finished, we’ll keep it up and running for a monthly price that’s competitive with the off-the-shelf, generic systems like Salesforce.com, CloudHQ, or Microsoft.  The ones that make your users scratch there head or sigh in frustration rather than loving their system because it makes their life so much easier.

Success Stories

"We were in dire straits with our CRM.  It was so complicated, we could barely use it.  Mark came to the rescue with his custom CRM platform that we adapted to our business, and went on to support our revenue growth from $1M to $3M in just 3 years! Our staff was thrilled to finally have a simple yet powerful system that successfully served us for many years."
Cynthia Kersey, Author, Speaker, and Founder/CEO of the Unstoppable Foundation

“I’ve known Mark for over 20 years in a half dozen separate assignments. In all of that time and each of those assignments, Mark displayed incredible creativity, attention to detail, ability to complete projects on time and on budget, and a commitment to the welfare of each company he helped rather than looking out for his own personal interests. In addition, I discovered that his sophistication continued to grow with each passing assignment, and have found working with him to be a joy.”
Rinaldo S. Brutoco, Founder and CEO, World Business Academy.org
