If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering FileMaker, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would rate FileMaker at three on a scale from one to ten and suggest that your first find a specialist and then use the product.
I love this product. I have been using it for 30 years. It has got lots of capabilities. Don't sell it short. It can do a lot more than you might think it can. I would rate FileMaker a ten out of ten.
Our company is now an Apple premium reseller. I'm only a user of FileMaker within our organization. I'm not sure if I'm completely knowledgeable about a lot of the intricacies of the solution. The version of the solution we're using is FileMaker Pro 18 Advanced. 18.104.22.1687. We have about 20-25 people on the solution at our organization and there are about three to four technicians running the solution that are admins. I'd advise others considering using the solution to test it out and try it first. If you plan to use it every day, it's important to talk to someone who uses it extensively to get a feel for what to expect. The UE is a bit difficult at first. I'd rate this solution eight out of ten. If they updated the user experience and made its look and feel more up-to-date I'd rate it higher.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
