FileMaker’s philosophy of building one solution and then being able to deploy simultaneously on multiple platforms and devices makes it easy to get access to your data whether you are on a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or across the web. This not only cuts down on development time and cost, it also reduces future maintenance and upgrade costs.
As FileMaker can talk to other data systems as well, it is the ideal tool to create an app just for your mobile devices, as it can pull data from multiple sources in your existing system and present the information to you in an easily viewed and understood format.
The freedom to have access to whatever you need, whenever you need it, releases you from the office environment without sacrificing productivity or connectivity with co-workers.
As FileMaker makes use of Apple’s intuitive iOS, your solution will function like the other apps on your iPad or iPhone – you’ll be up and running in no time and wondering how you managed without it.
Any changes made on your mobile device will automatically be shared with other users of the system, so apart from simple text entry you can make full use of your device’s capability including capturing photos and video, as well as scanning barcodes and recording signatures. These features are invaluable timesavers for a mobile workforce – no order processing or tying up the paperwork at the end of the day, it can all be done in realtime throughout the day as part of the workflow process.
If you would like to know more about how this incredible technology can really boost your productivity out on the road, as well as in situations where you need access to your system without being tethered to a PC e.g. in a warehouse environment, please contact us and we would be happy to answer your questions.
