A number of our clients say they were initially wary about approaching us for help with their existing FileMaker system. A common fear is that any valuable system update will mean weeks of development work and high costs. Very often we find that the outcome is quite the opposite. A few small, quick changes made by an experienced FileMaker expert can make a huge difference to your business. We thought we would share some of the benefits of just one day of FileMaker development with one of our team. You can learn more about FileMaker here.
Get rid of nagging issues
No matter how well built a system is, nearly all database users have a mental list of nagging issues with their system. This is a bugbear for anyone using business software on a daily basis. In isolation, these relatively minor issues aren’t problematic but numerous nagging issues building up across a system can be incredibly detrimental to the user experience. They cause frustration and can eventually lead to a loss of faith in the product. Our developer will meet with your nominated main user and find out your biggest frustrations with your system and we will work alongside you to resolve them. We have found that end users feel empowered by being able to have a direct input into their database and it’s remarkable how many nagging issues you can resolve in just a day to leave your system feeling fresh and usable again.
An accredited developer to build on your work
The beauty of FileMaker is that anyone can buy a copy and start building their own bespoke database. You can create functional software with a relatively modest investment of time. The trouble with this is that you may be missing out on so many of the great tools that FileMaker has in its armoury. The good news is that one of our FileMaker accredited developers can take your software to the next level by making recommendations on how to improve efficiency and make your employees lives much easier. As they work alongside you, they can even pass on some of the tip and tricks they’ve learned from their years of developing systems and keep you up to date on the latest innovations in the FileMaker platform.
