What FileMaker Can Offer Your Organization

Your organization faces a unique set of challenges on a daily basis. Tackling those challenges is critical to your team’s continued success; however, doing so may require a solution built around your needs and goals. Many businesses turn to custom-built software solutions to address issues that are constraining growth. But if you have a small or medium-size business, you may be concerned that you don’t have the resources for a custom software platform.

With FileMaker, a customized software platform optimized for your operations may be more feasible than you think. FileMaker has the power to transform the way your organization operates from the inside out. Whether your goal is to increase productivity, or off-the-shelf software is slowing your team down, a FileMaker solution can be built around your needs.

Benefits of the FileMaker Platform

The FileMaker Platform gives your team access to a custom software solution built around their unique workflow and robust capabilities such as:

  • File-sharing
  • Accounting
  • Contact management
  • Sales forecasting
  • Business planning and reporting
  • Lead management
  • Marketing automation
  • Project management

When you elevate your operations with a customized FileMaker solution, your organization can experience benefits like these:

Support for Any Device

Since a FileMaker solution can operate on any Mac or PC, as well as on any native iOS device, and as a web-based platform (which makes it accessible from virtually any device that can connect to the web), users are able to access mission-critical data using any of their favorite Apple,Windows or Android devices. These cross-platform possibilities make it easy to accommodate your team’s device needs. Whether working from a smartphone, laptop, tablet, or a desktop computer, your team will always have access to the same robust FileMaker toolkit.

An Intuitive Interface

With powerful dashboard functionality, FileMaker offers the flexibility to customize a user interface with a quick overview of mission-critical metrics. At the same time, customizable user experience (UX) elements make it easy for your team to hit the ground running on a platform they’re already comfortable using. When you partner with an experienced FileMaker developer, interface elements can be built around the tools your team relies on most for daily tasks, so they can take productivity to new levels.

Data Synchronization

FileMaker makes it easy to access and manage data no matter where work takes you. Remote workers can access files directly from primary systems while updating that same data in real-time, so everyone in your organization stays on the same page. Even without a network connection, FileMaker can be configured to update and merge data as soon as network connectivity is restored. With next-level database management capabilities, you no longer have to worry about misaligned data sources interfering with your operations.

Rapid Deployment

Building a custom software solution using legacy platforms and providers can take anywhere from a few months to as much as a year. With the capabilities of the FileMaker platform, you can gain access to the same customizable software features in a fraction of that time. When you partner with a team of FileMaker experts like the ones at Skeleton Key, you can expect a custom software solution in a matter of days or weeks, giving your team access to the tools they need to succeed today.
