FileMaker, Inc. recently adopted a new core message that encapsulates the strength of their software platform and helps business leaders better understand their focus.
FileMaker is a Workplace Innovation Platform. Essentially, the platform bridges the gap between appliance applications (like Quickbooks, Microsoft Office, file sharing) and enterprise systems (ERPs, CRMs) in order to free up time to focus on critical and strategic projects by eliminating manual processes, managing spreadsheets, disconnected systems and administrative tasks.
Are you spending too much time on repetitive tasks? Do you feel like your time would be better spent working to grow your business, but you’re too bogged-down with manual processes?
You are in a work rut. It’s likely that you’re using a mix of limited appliance apps and enterprise systems that have a different focus and are cumbersome to customize. This is where a Workplace Innovation Platform comes in – it’s a customizable tool that allows you to put your ideas and expertise into action.
FileMaker’s Workplace Innovation Platform provides a way to easily create applications that can be shared across your organization and integrated into your other applications. There’s no other tool that’s as easy to get started with developing that still has the depth to create powerful applications. While the ability for self-service development is one huge advantage to the FileMaker platform, the efficient development toolset also means that working with a development partner amplifies your return on investment.
Innovation made simple with FileMaker
Innovation is the driving force behind FileMaker. When it comes to building custom apps, getting an idea out of your head and into the world can be a daunting task. FileMaker focuses on removing the barriers between ideation and actualization. A basic custom app can be produced in minutes – hours instead of weeks – months. Choosing a platform with a low entry barrier and quick delivery time means that you’re able to achieve results with a small, initial investment, while still reaping the rewards of having a customized tool.
