Formerly Virtulink, LLC, Fivebase was founded by Mike Petrie who had spent the previous 10 years as a enterprise wide software consultant and sales engineer in the health and human services field. Much of that time was spent crafting web based solutions to address a large number of tasks including billing, accounting, client management, database management and reporting, system integration and electronic charting (Electronic Medical Records-EMR). Using these solutions, Mike has provided hundreds of presentations and consultations to small, medium and large size for profit and non profit organizations. In 2009, Mike founded Virtulink, LLC. The result was a synergy of a web services, web design and consulting services firm offering rich customer, technology and project experience. In the years that followed, Virtulink and our core group of consultants provided configuration and development to a diverse group of customers covering a diverse list of products. By the end of 2013, Virtulink's service areas had solidified into five core competencies and Fivebase, your base for solutions, was born. Our five areas of products and services is as follows:

  • Consulting - IT consulting, process improvement, Meaningful Use, RFP / software selection and implementation / project management
  • Design - Web site design, web portal design, mobile app design and custom software
  • Integration - System interfaces and web services (e.g., salesforce, UPS, Authorize.net)
  • Configuration - System configuration, screen building and report design for commercial software packages (e.g., Netsmart Avatar)
  • Support - Ongoing project and product support and staffing.

As time permits and market opportunities require, Fivebase will continually add new services and products to our core service areas. Fivebase's mission is simple: To help our clients optimize their organization through technology.
