Is Filemaker right for me?
I have run my photography studio for 18 years on pen and paper. All that time I knew it should be on a computer but I could never seem to find the right thing. I even bought FM about 10 years ago, Mac, and had another local studio share with me his Data Base. But now I have to start getting my stuff together. Here are my questions...
1- Bento or FM? Every review I read on Bento says it is unstable and that people seem to hate it. I need to keep track of customers, their orders, print invoices, print mailing labels. Seems simple to me.
2- If FM then do you think I can prove to them that I bought FM full version along time ago and get a upgrade? I no longer have the disc or serial number. I wonder if they would have me still in their Database. Assuming I registered it. It has been a long time and I doubt this is possible but at $300 to repurchase it is a lot. And it does not hurt to ask.
3- Besides the pre made templates in the program, there a affordable add-on which is well known for easy use in a portrait studio or similar business model?
