FileMaker Software as a Service
There is certainly a trend in the industry to rent software to users as opposed to requiring them to make huge initial commitments to purchase. From Netflix to Salesforce to Office 365; this trend is only going to grow. The problem with many SaaS offerings is that few of these services offer the ease to customize and tailor to a user's specific needs. In the past, most FileMaker solutions which where sold as a SaaS locked the 'developer' features in an effort to protect their intellectual property; however, we are working with some of the top FileMaker developers in the country to provide FileMaker-based SaaS offerings which still offer the ability to 'customize' to your specific needs.
Even if you only utilize a FileMaker SaaS solution as a tool to 'test the waters' for a more powerful custom solution, the feedback you receive from your users will save hours of development time.
Leverage your time
We've lost count at how many custom CRM solutions we have seen- the same is true for inventory management, and a host of other types of solutions. The beauty of FileMaker is that it can 'mold itself' to all kinds of special needs without a team of developers. The FileMaker website is full of stories on 'non-developers' which have created highly functional solutions.
Our goal is to give you a strong foundation to build on. Certain parts of the solution will be locked, as the original developer has to protect their investment; but you will have the ability to call scripts, create layouts, and edit structure.
When you consider the hundreds of hours of development, the small monthly fee to 'rent' these solutions is a real bargain- not to mention you can get started for very little initial investment.
We are very close to making several announcements, so stay tuned to leverage the power of FileMaker with the flexibility of a service.
