Imagine that you are managing a sales team for a landscaping company that uses spreadsheets to track all of its customer information. You have identified three key issues:

  • Accuracy — individual copies of the spreadsheet are distributed to team members, making it hard to track changes and produce reports.

  • Mobility — your team visits customers face-to-face and would like to use iPads to document these visits more effectively.

  • Compatibility — your team also works with contracts and site photos, managed separately from the spreadsheets.


You can meet these needs by using FileMaker Pro to build a custom iPad solution for your business, converting your spreadsheet to a mobile database solution that tracks work orders, stores contracts and photos,
and accepts electronic signatures. This solution will be hosted so that a single version of the data is shared among your coworkers.
