10 Reasons why we recommend Filemaker Pro to our clients

Here are 10 reasons why we recommend Filemaker Pro:-

  • The Filemaker Platform has been around for 20+ years – and new versions of the software are released periodically with new features
  • Filemaker licences can be purchased outright – so there is no need to keep paying ongoing licence / support fees. This helps our clients manage the cost of deployment.
  • There is an extensive online community of Filemaker Developers – so clients can easily get additional support
  • Filemaker allows data to be shared simultaneously between users. Even in this modern age, there are database platforms that do not allow users to access data in this way.
  • We are able to develop bespoke APIs (Application Programmable Interface) so that data can be integrated with other systems e.g  Email and Xero
  • Users can access data remotely – they do not have to be in the same physical location to access the data
  • Filemaker Pro runs on both Apple and Windows Platforms
  • There is a mobile version of Filemaker which allows people to access data on their iPhones and iPads
  • It allows fast development of systems – when compared to languages such as PHP / .net which require significantly more programming time
  • Data can be viewed via a web viewer as well as a Filemaker Client
