FileMaker Pro is cross platform, scalable database software. It runs on Macintosh, Windows, and iOS (iPhone/iPad) platforms. It is suitable for use by one user or by hundreds of users (with FileMaker Server).


The FileMaker product line includes:

FileMaker Pro

FileMaker Pro is the client software. Use it on your Mac or PC to create and run a database, and share it with up to nine other users running FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Advanced, or FileMaker Go.

FileMaker Pro Advanced

FileMaker Pro Advanced is FileMaker Pro with advanced development and customisation tools. It includes a script debugger, a data viewer for monitoring the contents of fields and variables, and a runtime tool for creating a runtime version of FileMaker that can be used on Mac and Windows computers that don't have FileMaker Pro installed.

FileMaker Server

FileMaker Server is used to share FileMaker databases over a network with up to 250 users. It includes advanced back up routines that can back up your FileMaker files without shutting down the server or disconnecting users. FileMaker Server 13 includes WebDirect (with connection licenses), which is breakthrough web technology that runs custom business solutions directly in a web browser on a desktop or laptop - with no web development skills required.

FileMaker Go

FileMaker Go is used on iOS devices (iPhones, iPads, and iPods) to access databases stored on the device or access databases hosted on FileMaker Server.


FileMaker Pro can be used for almost any solution involving data, from simple (houshold inventory, recipes) solutions to every day business solutions (contacts, invoicing, inventory, medical records), to complex engineering (calculating lighting efficiency in buildings/groups of buildings, or tracking off shore oil platform equipment installations, service history, and specifications), to the unusual (searching Craig's List, searching web sites and extracting data). All of the above are among our recent projects.
