What We Do

The Moyer Group is a technology services company that develops custom applications for workgroups, mobile, and the web. We specialize in building client-server and web-based applications with a strong database component. Typically we utilize FileMaker Pro for workgroups, and MySQL/PHP solutions for higher transaction or native web systems.

We have written a number of books on database design with FileMaker Pro as well as numerous articles, training materials and conference presentations for both the FileMaker and open source communities. Our senior members have been the recipients of a number of industry awards. The Moyer Group is a Platinum level member of the FileMaker Business Alliance.

How It All Started

From 1991 through 1994, Chris Moyer, the founder of The Moyer Group was working as a sales engineer for Claris Corporation (now FileMaker, Inc.), a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple Computer (now Apple). After leaving Claris, Chris founded Chris Moyer Consulting and released his first book, Special Edition Using FileMaker 3 in 1995. He was one of three trainers hired by Claris to roll FileMaker 3 out to the developer community worldwide.
Since then, Chris has coauthored two additional books on FileMaker, was the technical editor of FileMaker Advisor Magazine while also coauthoring the Ask Advisor problem solving column, and has also given several presentations on a variety of topics at several FileMaker conferences and user groups.
