Getting organized for the new year: Filemaker Pro

Boot Camp feature for Friday, December 26, 2014

Let your computer help you get organized for the new year.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Whether you have a Windows PC, a Mac…or just rely on an iPad or iPhone….the folks at Filemaker have software that can help you organize just about anything.   Marketing VP Ryan Rosenberg says there are ready made solutions for homes and organizations and businesses too…

“So the desktop’s where it all begins.  You get a copy of Filemaker Pro or Filemaker Pro Advanced and you put it on a Mac or Windows machine.  And then you go and open it up and you start building your solution.  Now building your solution might sound intimidating to some people but all it involves is creating fields of information, dragging those fields onto a form.  Once, you’ve got your solution, then you have to decide, now where do I want to run that solution.  Am I interested in running it on a desktop, am I interested in running it on an iPad or iPhone, or maybe projecting it out to a browser.”

FileMaker Pro is flexible and full featured…and sells for about three hundred dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
