About Us

Colibri offers expert consulting and software apps that allow our clients to dream bigger, execute better, and surpass their goals.


Since 1998, Colibri has developed hundreds of custom software apps using a highly effective process that takes advantage of Agile methods and other modern app development techniques. 


We provide our applications to businesses and institutions in a wide variety of industries. Our apps take advantage of the FileMaker professional low-code platform, SQL, JavaScript, REST APIs and JSON, PHP, and other technologies.

Colibri is a certified Claris Partner and FileMaker Reseller. Colibri principals have been invited speakers at the numerous worldwide FileMaker Developer Conferences, Claris–sponsored webinars, and other events.
