As a Business Development Manager, I’m fascinated by the ways people are looking to transform their businesses using FileMaker Go. This free FileMaker client for the iPhone and iPad helps them take their business to the next level.
Mobile Opportunities with FileMaker
One business I recently talked to wanted to create an inspection checklist. They sought to give their field inspectors the ability to electronically capture information regarding the structural quality of a facility. The field inspector would then upload the data into a database hosted on FileMaker Server. This generates an immediate report for their client, giving their specific recommendations.
Another company I had the opportunity to speak with wanted to use FileMaker Go in their bar. They sought the kiosk functionality for patrons to key in their drink of their choice. The system would then drop the requested drink into a queue for the bartender to prepare and deliver.
These are examples of really cool ideas businesses asked us to make into a reality for them. These two projects were fun to chat about and explore. After a few conversations, we were able to help make the ideas transformational and achievable.
Taking FileMaker on the Go
More and more we’re hearing from clients wanting to unleash their business applications and databases into the mobile environment. Mobile really is a platform of choice that I expect businesses to pursue dramatically. With so many apps available across various platforms, companies can integrate the iPad and the iPhone into various parts of their business. FileMaker Go integrates very well across the mobile platform. It makes sense for our clients to envision how FileMaker Go can help take their business to the next level.
