We are Problem Solvers

Cutting Edge Software designs, develops and delivers custom business solutions tailored to each client.

We don’t just solve problems, we make digital transformation happen. We have designed, developed and deployed FileMaker solutions for organisations of all shapes and sizes across a wide range of industry sectors. Our customers include organisations as large as Apple, the RAC and Kew Gardens through to companies with just a handful of employees. Our solutions are tailored to meet the exact requirements of each business.

We design and build to fit in with the way you work rather than forcing you to work the way the solution works.

Claris FileMaker Certified Developer

2004 saw FileMaker launch a new certification programme for its developers. Carl Henshall, founder of Cutting Edge Software, became one of the first UK developers to gain certification for FileMaker 7.

Carl was also one of the first UK developers to gain certification for FileMaker versions 8 through to 18 when they became available.

Version 18 was the last version specific certification. 2021 saw the launch of a new certification program. Instead of being version specific, it is valid for two years from the date you successfully pass the Developer Essentials for Claris FileMaker exam. Carl was again one of the first UK developers to gain this certification.

These certifications give you the reassurance that we have technical knowledge of the complete FileMaker product line.


We provide the best value to our customers by continuously refining our development techniques and processes.
