FileMaker has been around since the late 1980s and is a valuable tool that is used by developers to create bespoke databases that can be packed full of features to reduce staff time and boring tasks. Customised software can help your business grow quicker, and data that was traditionally tied to PCs, can be instantly with your team, in the field.
Claris FileMaker is an Apple subsidiary and will be around for many years to come.
Easy to use applications and customised software
If any of the following take up many hours of your time, and you need an easy way to manage things, then a bespoke solution may be just what you require.
- multiple contacts
- production costs
- stock and stock control
- custom forms
- record keeping
- daily logs
- Time management systems
At the click of a button, you can find a record, email a client with a quote, print mailing and asset labels, import and export information, fill forms and save hours of valuable time.
Creating a business system that your staff will find easy to use, manage and share data, will make your workforce more productive. We can lock down areas for different teams/departments; ensure data is not erased in error and integrate it with your own systems.
Business integration solutions
Writing apps and software for small or very large organisations means you don’t have to keep changing or upgrading your software. It is versatile and intuitive to work with. Extra functionality can be added, and latest revisions keep up to date with security and interfaces with other apps you may use. The software is robust and keeps getting better year-on-year.
A cloud based application is ideal for multi-site environments. We have been working with the software for over 20 years; There is nothing it can’t handle. It is very powerful and will handle a complex structure or a small mailing list.
It is lightyears ahead of Microsoft Access and competes with all top-level data solutions.
Cross-platform business software
If your business uses both Windows and OSX, we can develop applications to work across both platforms, saving your staff hours of wasted time. Any home-grown systems can be integrated, and the apps can be used across desktops, web browsers, tablets and all kinds of phones.
What you need to consider
You will need a license for the software, but this is low compared to alternatives which won’t necessarily match your needs or grow with your business as you expand. Dependent upon the project, you will need a development budget, but we can advise on exactly what you will need and following a discovery session, we will give you a quotation to match your requirements.
