Filemaker Solutions for your business
Our primary aim for your business is to identify tasks and processes that are currently performed inefficiently, and to streamline them. In research from the US, it was identified that managers spent an average of 4 hours per week searching for badly filed or lost paperwork. That’s one month per year.
Imagine if you could replace paper-based or desk-bound systems with solutions based on iPad, specifically created with your business logic in mind. Accurate recalling or recording of data on iPads that are perfectly suited for mobile data. Users can view and enter data accurately, however complex your requirement. New data will be efficiently synced to your existing backend systems, or complete bespoke backend systems can be built if you are ready to make a bigger change. You’ll eliminate time wasted transferring data from paper to critical systems, and ensure excellent data accuracy and integrity.
As well as data entry, Filemaker is ideally suited to allow sales staff to carry product information without the need for heavy brochures, with the benefit of live updates to pricing and specification as you make them.
Filemaker Go 14 for the iPad gives you the power of custom apps in your hand, without the expense of apps written from scratch. Our solutions take advantage of the camera to record images, allows your clients to sign on the screen with their finger and even allows scanning of barcodes for rapid product identification. By deploying on iPad you can also give your staff access to many business tools available on iOS, such as email, calendar, Evernote, web access and Microsoft Office compatibility.
What about your own customers? You could further increase efficiency by allowing clients to find out what they need to know at their convenience, without needing to get you on the phone. Allow access from any web browser to customised enquiry forms for order chasing, appointment booking, or any service you offer to your customers.
By using the Filemaker 14 platform, KRCS can create affordable, yet completely customised applications for your business. It can be accessed using dedicated Filemaker applications on iPad, Mac and PC, or via any modern web browser on iOS, Mac OS X and Windows. Your data, available wherever and whenever you need it.
What kind of solutions can be created?
We always say that ‘Filemaker can do anything’. Whilst that may be a big claim, we struggle to think of any business that we couldn’t help to streamline with a Filemaker bespoke solution.
Here’s some examples.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
