“Our efficiency and therefore profitability has increased. Our business has grown but we haven’t needed to increase the head count because the staff no longer need to do those mundane, time-consuming tasks. They can focus on our customers and our business.”

Choose the help you need

Get an impartial report on your system

If you’re not sure what updates you might need, a system condition report provides an impartial view on what improvements, if any, your system needs.

Rescue an underperforming or legacy system

If you’re struggling with a legacy FileMaker system that is unreliable, unfinished or needs implementing, we can fix it for you.

Make your FileMaker system do more

Integrating with your other business software, adding new functionality, serving more users – there’s so much more your system can do for you.

Upgrade your FileMaker system

Bringing your system up to date with a FileMaker upgrade makes it more secure, more robust, potentially faster and more efficient too – and offers many opportunities to do more with it.

Could these powerful new functions help your business?

We can extend your Claris FileMaker system to other parts of your business – here are some possibilities.

Management reports

Create reports and dashboards, turning the data in your system into meaningful management information. Using FileMaker for workflow and management reporting offers valuable insights into business performance.

Connect existing systems

Connect to other software systems you use, from accounting software to payroll to industry-specific software. Data entry, reduce errors, and ensure FileMaker helps you get the best from your whole software ecosystem.

Record user activity

ntroduce an audit trail of users' activity to increase transparency and accountability. A user management system ensures everyone can only see what they should see, while comprehensive audit logging reveals hidden truths about productivity by highlighting bottlenecks and inefficiencies, pointing the way to solutions.

Customer portal

Create a secure customer portal, accessible from any device, to give your customers and suppliers a safe way to view (and update) key data. This not only saves you admin time but gives your customers an efficient way to access information at a time that suits them.

Use your FileMaker system on the move

With FileMaker Go, your FileMaker system can be accessed and used on iPhone and iPad as a mobile app, not just on desktop or laptop computers. This can be a game-changer. It makes it easy to input and upload reports or carry out inspections from remote locations. It frees your team to carry iPads with them while moving around your warehouse, factory or facilities. With FileMaker on iOS, your system becomes a much more flexible and powerful tool.

What is the latest version of FileMaker?

The latest version of the FileMaker platform, launched in 2023, is called Claris FileMaker 2023. The previous version was named FileMaker 19, and FileMaker 2023 is also known as FileMaker 20. To demonstrate its ambitions for the platform, Claris has chosen to go with a new naming convention for this new release, while launching enhanced tools and further strengthening a powerful software platform. The platform continues to offer a rich set of tools, including FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go and FileMaker WebDirect – each of which provides a different way to access a FileMaker system.
