Go Mobile with Your FileMaker Solution
FileMaker Go empowers you to access your business applications and data with a mobile device. Our team helps clients skip the complexities of building their own application from the ground up but still enjoy the benefits of mobile capabilities. Partner with our certified developers to launch an effective business application.
To streamline the sales process for a new product line, Scott Safety partnered with Soliant Consulting for a FileMaker Go solution. The application allows the company’s sales and distribution teams to research specific products on their iPhones. Users can then create customized marketing flyers, produce personalized quote sheets, and even drop the customized part into a customer’s cart.
Connecting your FileMaker solution to a mobile device allows your team to take advantage of mobile-specific functionality, including:
- Signature Capture
- Barcode Reader
- Camera Integration
- Location Services
- Native iOS Keyboards
- Touch Controls
For Android users, our team leverages FileMaker WebDirect functionality. Our solutions allow clients to access the full capabilities of their FileMaker solutions with mobile browsers.
To help developers learn how create mobile solutions, Soliant Consulting Senior Technical Solution Architect, Dawn Heady, completely overhauled the FileMaker Go Toolkit for FileMaker. You can use this free resource to explore examples of mobile-friendly touch interfaces and scripting best practices, including:
- Themes designed for mobile use
- Detail and List view examples
- Examples of layout objects
- Tips for developing for FileMaker Go

Some of our clients like to take a different approach to going mobile. Our certified developers use the FileMaker iOS SDK to transform FileMaker solutions into trusted iOS apps, making them more accessible to users of all kinds via the iPhone or iPad. This enables more customers, vendors, and other stakeholders to leverage and engage with data without having to download FileMaker. It also leverages the security and convenience of their devices.
Through an iOS app, your employees can manage their responsibilities, your customers can access their logins, and your partners can view your inventory, all from anywhere with a WiFi signal.
