Data Connectivity – FileMaker Online Data Solutions

You need data connectivity!

What do we mean by that?

We have noticed that many businesses are using multiple software programs that cannot easily communicate with each other.

Sometimes a business will enter their data into Excel. Then, a Sales Person needs that data for follow-up. The Secretary will find that information, open up Outlook, cut and paste the data into Outlook and email it to the Sales Person. Next, the Sales Person opens his/her email client and copies and pastes that information into their CRM software. Then when the Prospect becomes a Customer, and makes purchase, their data is entered (now for the third time) into the Sales Order and Invoicing program, perhaps by the Bookkeeper, which may or may not connect to QuickBooks. The company may also be using DropBox to share files, or possibly BaseCamp for projects.

This scenario means business owners are paying a Secretary, a Salesperson, an Accountant to enter the same data.

HighPower Data Solutions can automate your data connectivity, so that you can stop wasting money and start saving cash. Contact us today.

What else is FileMaker good for?

There are many routine and common functions which every business must perform over and over again. However, using FileMaker Pro app development, HighPower can build you a software system which automates many aspects of your business. For instance, following-up on leads, sending your employee staff hours to your accountant, tracking the estimated vs. actual cost of projects, and so much more.

Integrating your Data

FileMaker Pro is a relational database system so that you will only have to enter your data once. No more double-entry. No more dependence on spreadsheets to track your business data. Because of this, all of your data, files, documents, accounts, and anything you else you want to track, will all be in one place.

Coordinating your Employees

HighPower can help your employees to work together. We provide a common platform where everyone can work together even more. In other words, no longer will one employee have that person’s contact information just on their laptop (‘I left it at home today’)! Additionally, projects can be passed from employee to employee, or from department to department, with appropriate flags and notes attached, so that each department can see the work that has been done.

Also, we can integrate FileMaker Pro with your company needs, and with any web services or web subscriptions which you are currently using.

So, there is a better way to run your business, and we can help make that happen for you.
