We create solutions that accelerate your business.

Not every business problem fits neatly into an off-the-shelf software solution. Developing a custom, work-for-hire solution can have a higher ROI compared to the implementation and ongoing licensing fees of SaaS. For 23 years, fivestar* has worked with clients to understand their specific business needs and develop software solutions that provide the fit that an off-the-shelf solution can’t provide. 


Let’s solve your challenges.

1. Are you maximizing the value you get from your existing tools?

fivestar* helps you take advantage of your existing tools through integrations, optimization, and automation. Our software solutions optimize workflows, making your tools work for you and not the other way around.

2. Are your teams able to easily access and utilize the data those tools generate?

For most organizations data is abundant but not easily usable. fivestar* can help you centralize your most valuable data into dashboards accessible to the people who need it.

3. Are your users getting all of the value from the technology you already use?

Custom solutions improve the user experience for everyone. We build solutions with your users in mind - improving day-to-day productivity and enabling your team work more efficiently, driving engagement and increasing your bottom line.
