Member of:


Caltec is a company dedicated to the development of databases and information systems. Caltec is managed by a team with more than twenty years of experience in FileMaker software. We embed our innovative vision of information Engineering in our solutions.

Caltec adds extra layers of artificial intelligence and alerts to everyday decisions around each system core. We setup modularity, capable of predicting and responding before Human intervention in order to save time. Our systems anticipate the problems before they occur.

Supported by these elements, you will take your commercial, financial or administrative decisions with a higher level of security as well as give a more immediate and accurate response to your customers: two competitive advantages in any successful company in the XXI century.

Our language support allow us to develop projects in English, French, Spanish and Catalan, beyond our natural Portuguese.

We welcome international and cooperative projects, in any area.

We counteract:

  • Absence of organized routines in data processing.
  •   Generalized"Excelization" that is, the overuse of Excel to store and manage data.
  • Applications in multiple platforms without proper data exchange systems.
  • Inadequate or absent knowledge about how data differs from information.
  • Disagreement between users and "uncomfortable" applications.
  • Packets of "raw untreated data" and lack of connectivity between files.
  • Nonexistence of Systems maintenance.
  • Lack of security plan.

Unfortunately this is the reality we find on a day to day basis in many companies, both public and private.

Our weapons:

To counter this reality, we have a very talented team of developers that monitor systems and directly attack these problems, promoting productivity and the sharing of trustworthy information: More information, better decisions!
