As users increasingly expect to access their business applications via mobile devices, one of the most efficient ways to deploy a mobile business solutions lies with FileMaker and FileMaker Go. If you’re a small or mid-size company, often creating a native mobile app (in Objective C, Swift or Java) is prohibitively expensive and difficult. The development effort required by FileMaker Go is a tiny fraction of what creating a native iOS app would be, and it doesn’t require any knowledge of how Apple manages its App Store for businesses.
As one of the leading FileMaker development firms in the world, Soliant has the experience to make extending databases to mobile devices a success. Developing mobile-friendly solutions requires a good understanding of mobile interface standards, scripting techniques for FileMaker Go, and most importantly performance and security considerations. Soliant has helped dozens of clients develop mobile business applications in FileMaker Go.
FileMaker Go is a free download from the iOS App Store. For single-user databases stored on your device, that’s all that is required to use a FileMaker solution. For multi-user databases, you’ll need to host the file on FileMaker Server and purchase concurrent user licenses as necessary. Keep in mind, a concurrent user license need not be purchased for every individual user: you will only need however many licenses as you have users accessing the database at the same time.
For Android users, we turn to FileMaker WebDirect. It allows FileMaker solutions to be accessed via web browsers and is a rich, fully-functional client. We recommend tailoring interfaces for mobile browsers.[/text]
