Managing subscriptions and donations within the Charity Sector
Charities are frequently looking for new systems to cope with a complex array of subscriptions and donations which are vital to funding success.
A custom built app or system can be built specifically to store and track all forms of contact. These might arise from street collections, charity shops or online donations; through service users or volunteers donations; via trusts, statutory authorities or through legacies.
Keeping a database up-to-date and ensuring the system is efficient, managing the contact list, tracking donations and running mail-merges and mail shots can be time and staff-consuming with clunky software.
All of these tasks can be managed with a custom built application which would free up staff time and give your busy employees the facility to update and access the database at any location or site.
Providing real-time access to patient information in the health care sector, NHS and private practices
There are countless opportunities, in the health care sector, to reduce staff time and organise paperwork combining patients' paper records, appointment schedules, medication and consultants’ notes.
A custom app could provide staff with 24-hour access to their patients’ records, x-rays, MRI scans, test results and clinical records – all from one dashboard. Patients' records would always be up-to-date and their medical history accessible for all healthcare professionals and consultants wherever they are based. Streamlining patient care and cutting hours of unnecessary admin time.
Business solution for craft brewery
Our custom app business solutions can also assist businesses such as a craft brewery who would like to keep track of their barrels. A Filemaker application can generate the labels to include:
- Barrel size
- Type of beer
- Shipping destination
Brewery workers would scan the barcodes to ensure the correct fill and shipping at the production and warehouse stages. When the barrels are returned, the barcode is scanned, the original label removed and the process starts afresh.
Using an application in this manner, a craft brewery is just an example, can eliminate losses thanks to a more efficient system.
The added bonus is that both warehouse and factory workers would be comfortable using an iPad and barcode reader.
Database apps for schools and colleges
Schools and colleges process a huge amount of information; managing these volumes requires a robust and easy-to-use system. One such school that uses Filemaker is Cheltenham College Junior School, who manage their parental information, newsletters, risk assessments and school trips, within a custom app which has made it easy for the school to reach parents with urgent messages and vital information quickly.
Parents can be contacted, and can reply, on whatever device they own – iPhone, iPad, iOS, Mac or PC. There are no compatibility issues.
