What is FileMaker?
FileMaker is an innovative platform for creating and connecting applications. For example, you can use it to create custom estimating software, a one-of-a-kind CRM, an inventory management system, a customer portal, a project management dashboard, a tracking and storage system for creative assets and projects and much more.
No matter what you do, the best use of FileMaker is to use it to create something wholly unique, tailored to your own business or organization and its particular workflow.

- Electronic record-keeping
- Document/Creative Asset management
- Collaboration across teams and worksites
- Business Intelligence (BI) and reporting
- Marketing Automation
- Internet of Things (IoT)
