Animal Shelter database solution...


Hi there,

I am new to Filemaker so please excuse the ignorance:) Currently I'm looking into creating a Filemaker solution for a local animal shelter where I work. It will be used to track the day-to-day activities of our resident shelter population by animal care staff. I have a couple questions:

1. To deploy an iPad-based tracking solution that will be used by 10+ people entering data into the system simultaneously how expensive would this be? Minus the costs of the iPads running Filemaker Go.

2. Besides Filemaker Pro and iPads running Filemaker Go would I need to purchase any additional software? Will the solution be deployable from a single iteration of Pro onto all the iPads? Will the iPads automatically update the main database?   

Thank you for any advice you can offer. I'm slowly teaching myself the Filemaker platform:)
