  • Since then, we have served a number of small and medium sized businesses here and abroad... I will show you later on some of the projects we had with our previous clients. We would love to show you all of our work! But due to the nature of our service agreement we are obligated under NDA or non-disclosure agreement terms to respect our clients’ privacy and proprietary solutions.

  • since 2003, our company has been specializing in developing FileMaker Solutions for our a variety of our clients
  • FileMaker Pro is the world’s leading “easy-to-use” database application developed by FileMaker, Inc--a subsidiary of Apple Inc. FileMaker, Inc. was founded on 1998 and it has been profitable for every quarter since its formation and currently employs more than 250 people in eight offices worldwide.
  • Millions and millions of people rely on FileMaker Pro everyday to organize, manage, analyze and share information in a wide variety of industries and services such as: (read out the list)


  • FIleMaker, Inc products, more specifically FMP have been sold worldwide with 15 million units shipped around the globe and are licensed within prestigious organizations including (read the list), leading universities around the world, and more than 4,000 government agencies and institutions in the US alone.
    FileMaker Pro is used in virtually every private and public market sector worldwide.

  • Solutions built with the award-winning FileMaker Pro database technology are used for a wide range of functions including: project management, asset management, tracking jobs/invoices/billing, Web publishing, catalog creation, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), patient records management,
    logistics management, film and video production, sales and advertising management, workflow automation, business processes tracking, customer service, and a whole lot more... The items with asterisk are the important components of the database management system your company needs.

  • When it comes to buying and using technology, small businesses often have the same needs as large companies. Whether it’s a company of 5 or 5,000 employees, businesses look for ways to help people manage individual information, be more productive, and collaborate with others. It is not surprising, then, that price is a major issue. In fact, according to a November 2005 survey by Small Business Trends, the most frequent objections to investing in technology are related to price and budget. But it’s not just about dollar cost. It’s also about the cost of time. I will tackle the issue of price and budget later on this presentation, but, first, I would like to talk about the cost of time.
    Moving quickly makes all the difference in the world to a small business. Whether it is finding new customers, closing a sale, or shipping a product, speed matters. It’s also a competitive advantage for smaller companies competing against larger fish. For most businesses, lost time or unproductive time has a more significant impact on the business than in a large company. Buying, installing and learning to use technology requires time — to pick the right product, time to install and maintain it, time to learn how to use it effectively, and finally, to find usefulness beyond the technology’s initial purpose.

  • The good news is there is a whole new class of technology — driven by companies like Google and eBay — giving many businesses the same capabilities that have traditionally been available only to large companies. While these technologies lower the price, they also increase the speed that small companies can begin to see the benefit to their business.
    This new class of software and services, driven by some of the largest technology companies in the world, are helping businesses move faster and do more.
    Google — makes advertising instantly available to anyone, giving small businesses the same access and knowledge that large companies traditionally enjoyed. Placing an ad the first time on Google takes an hour or two, as opposed to months of working with an ad agency and publications.

    e-Bay - allows small business to sell quickly and competitively on the Web. Offering an item for sale on e-Bay the first time takes a couple hours, versus days of placing an ad in the newspaper, or hiring a firm to create online banner ads.

    Apple — with its popular iPod and iTunes product lines, small businesses now are creating “podcasts,” a new and simple low-cost audio and video broadcast marketing medium. Audio and video broadcasting can be created and synced to iTunes for distribution, instead of the traditional complex and expensive radio and television broadcast model.

    Accounting softwares — gives accounting control and financial forecasting to businesses of all sizes . Accounting software now gives businesses control and knowledge over finances that were typically run out of a checkbook, or impossible without hiring a bookkeeper or accountant.

    FileMaker Pro - the #1-selling, easy-to-use database, anyone from the CEO to a part-time admin can immediately begin managing projects, people and assets – without the need for a database programmer or full time support staff. FileMaker Pro gives control to your business operations and management.




  • In each instance, improvements in speed across the company led to rapid adoption among small businesses.

  • Let us look now on FileMaker Technology and You. I will give you an overview of how FileMaker Technology saves you time and money...
  • Administrators can deploy FileMaker Server in minutes, with plug-and-play client desktop connectivity, and automate administrative tasks such as scheduled live backups. FileMaker Pro’s customizable user interface supports the rapid development of solutions. It is ideally suited for today’s fast-paced business environments, where IT administrators are often asked to quickly add new functionality to applications. For example, FileMaker Pro’s support for database design is done by a point and click scripting language. Many basic and intermediate solutions can be designed and used with no advanced programming knowledge. As a result, FileMaker Pro is very effective in cases where organizations need a functional prototype in a short period of time. Get that speed-to-market advantage by choosing FileMaker which can be rapidly deployed, saving you a huge amount of your earning-time.
    Speed-to-market is now leading the list of key advantages of a variety of new technologies—ahead of cost savings.

  • If you can enter text in a form, you can use FileMaker Pro Solutions. And to make it even easier, text entry can be automated with drag-and-drop. Just drag an Excel spreadsheet onto FileMaker for instant data import. Advanced functions are available, as your database needs grow.


  • Unlike software designed to only address one specific function, FileMaker is flexible enough to meet the
    varying needs of your business:
    Managing contacts and companies
    • Organizing products and inventory
    • Processing sales orders
    • Tracking projects and production
    • Sending targeted mailings
    • Producing invoices and reports
    The same software that manages one function can be used to manage other functions time and time again -- all in just one software solution.

    FileMaker will grow and adapt to the changing needs of your business. It is also easy to customize FileMaker Pro by adding a company logo, background colors, custom field names, or more.

  • It is simple to share data with colleagues on other computers, over email, or on the Web:
    • Create Web access with a single click.
    • Share databases with up to 250 simultaneous users over a network.
    • Save data in popular formats such as PDF and Excel.
    • Share data with both Mac OS or Windows users, we call this cross-platform compatibility.
    • Instantly attach data to an email – as PDF or Excel – to share outside the application.
    FileMaker solutions can export and import data from all known enterprise systems.

  • It can easily be modified as your needs change or projects grow. Easy database management -- even non-technical people can add new users and security to the database. Administrators can deploy FileMaker Server in minutes, with plug-and-play client desktop connectivity, and automate administrative tasks such as scheduled live backups. IT professionals indicate that properly configured FileMaker Server demonstrates very high reliability and therefore requires minimal administration. FileMaker Pro’s ability to deliver more robust solutions with lower administrative resources makes it especially effective.
  • FileMaker offers easy and affordable software updates--just a fraction of your original license contract, translating to more savings in your pocket.
    It means there is no effort required to convert to new solutions. You simply open your existing data in the new version and you immediately start benefiting from additional features.

    You are not tied-up to any IT professionals for the maintenance of your system.
    You can upgrade the applications more quickly to respond to customer demands and changing business environments
  • FileMaker Pro’s highly customizable database design allows decision-making to be made by the individual worker and workgroup because of the ease with which they can receive and analyze key data, even as requirements change.
  • Of course the next slides I will show you will deal with the issue of the cost of development. Sometimes the best way to demonstrate value is in comparison to others.
