Turning Star, Inc.

Turning Star, Inc.

Turning Star started using FileMaker Pro version 4 more than 10 years ago. Over the years, they changed very little within their solution other than upgrading FileMaker Pro versions. So, we performed a complete overhaul of their file system, added the ability to track manufacturing and inventory, and re-designed the user interface. The result is a stunningly smooth, fast system that makes their everyday work lives more pleasurable and efficient.

Drake University

Drake University

Drake's in-house marketing and communications department uses FileMaker to track their jobs, budgets, production schedules, personal tasks, and administrative duties. Calling their system MCOPS, for "Marketing and Communication Online Production System", they were running MCOPS on FileMaker 5 and were looking to upgrade and improve their system. We rebuilt the underlying architecture, added a dashboard for each user, and designed a new user interface for a better overall user experience.

New Horizons

New Horizons

New Horizons came to us initially only needing an upgrade from the unsupported FileMaker 6 to FileMaker 10. As the project unfolded, we performed a file consolidation, added a user login, connected their different offices over a WAN, smoothed out the wrinkles in their workflow, and re-designed the user interface. The end result is a system that performs better than ever.

They were in need of a system upgrade and consolidating their North American and European systems into one smooth system. Over the course of three phases, we worked with their IT staff to upgrade their system, re-design the workflow and individual task management.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center

The Communication department at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is responsible for telecommunications services across the entire Medical Center (the hospital, clinic, and medical school). To provide this service, the Communication department must house all employees’ information. However, the FileMaker database they were using was aging and no longer supported. They came to us exploring whether to upgrade their existing FileMaker database or continue a struggling database venture that involved starting over from scratch using a different technology.

PeopleCare

PeopleCare

PeopleCare is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization providing services to those whose age or physical condition limits their mobility. PeopleCare came to us using multiple programs to manage their daily operations, including a custom-built Microsoft Access program, spreadsheets, and paper files. To help solve these issues, we outfitted PeopleCare with a FileMaker system that consolidated their programs in to a single, user-friendly location—the type of system where FileMaker shines.

Indiana Foster Care & Adoption Association

Indiana Foster Care & Adoption Association

"We needed a solution that would simplify the administration of our responsibilities under our contract with the State of Indiana. We have seen a dramatic increase across the state in the number of potential foster and adoptive parents that have begun the preparation and training process. This increase has resulted in a significant opportunity for children available for adoption. That's a big win for everyone! And it's all because we can refer potential parents to the proper state contacts efficiently and quickly."

The Painting Edge

"Thank you for our new database system. We transitioned from a carbon copy paper based system to a digital database. The software has saved us time and money. We used to archive all our jobs in cabinets, now we can look up a job in seconds from anywhere. The software also allows us to easily email estimates to our customers in pdf format. In a year there was a return on investment just from eliminating the purchasing of our carbon forms."
