You would have to write a scripts. There are sync programs available by 3rd party. www.seedcode.com has a free one table sync and another paid version. www.fmeasysync.com has a free frame work that requires fm server, it can be modified. Filemaker has a sync guide at the following link http://www.filemaker.com/solutions/ios/docs/fmi_guide_sync_en.pdf. If you have all time network connection (while data is being entered) then the device could connect to the database live just as a computer would connect. If the client will not always have an internet connection, then you would have to sync the client to the server.
Thanks for the quick and detailed response, S C. Appreciated.

The iPads will have internet access as well when the technicians are on the road.
I will go over the information in the Links, thanks!
The iPads can connect to the server in the same manner as a computer. If the technicians internet will be intermediate then you will need to sync. Here is a link to connecting to a file via Go. http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7763/~/connecting-to-a-file-via-filemaker-go
