CASE STUDIES

Soliant's success as trusted advisor to GAP, DreamWorks, and others is built on the Claris Platform.

Steph Courdin, founder of the ALS Never Surrender Foundation, meets with a doctor to showcase the app he co-created with Soliant to track progression of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Philanthropic at heart

One of Soliant’s biggest passions is spreading the good news about Claris.

During just two quarters of 2020 alone, the company hosted more than 25 advocacy events. This, alongside generating a wealth of other Claris-related content like tutorials and vlogs at Soliant TV, and blog posts and labs on topics like Tackling Sync in FileMaker Demo Files and Path Conversion Functions in Claris FileMaker 19. Bowers himself has co-ed seven books on FileMaker development. The content is free and available to all. 

“A lot of our blog posts, how-tos, videos, and webinars are inspired by the moment when our own developers learn something new and want to empower others,” says Arthur.

But Soliant’s advocacy isn’t limited to its customers, employees, and other developers. The 16-year-old company also offers volunteer development work for a handful of charitable projects each year. 

Most recently, in partnership with the Claris COVID-19 Response Team, Soliant worked with the City of New Orleans to build a custom app to help fight the spread of the pandemicc. The app tracked Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) purchases and donations, which helped the City distribute supplies to funeral 数字合约交易登录入口_全homes, essential City workers and volunteers who needed it most.

“That project was incredible,” Bowers says. “We were able to make a difference so quickly. It was very fast, but very impactful and high-energy because the need was so immediate and the solution so important.”

Another special project included helping Steph Courdin develop an app designed to help patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's Disease gain more freedom and agency by tracking their symptoms independently.

“Our Humanitarian Committee lets us give back to our communities by doing work we already love,” Arthur says.

In recognition of Soliant’s tireless advocacy work, Claris awarded the company its 2020 Excellence Award for Advocacy. 

When news of the award broke, it traveled fast through the Soliant’s virtual office. 

"Everyone was proud and excited!” says Bowers.  

And yet, he adds, after a few moments of celebrating, the discussion quickly shifted. 

“We were excited to be recognized, but we wanted to get to work again, changing lives for the better with the Claris Platform.”
