Yes, FileMaker can handle this with no problems..
FYI- We have over 350 iPad's syncing to a server... We do about 15k-20k records a month... No issues..
Gozync and Mirrorsync both work great.. You can download a free working demo of both.
You should plan on building layouts for each device.. i.e... iPad layouts.. iPhone layouts.. and desktop layouts... this will optimize the user experience.
Thanks, JP, for your reply.
I am still a bit confused... Gozync and Mirrorsync, are they alternatives to FileMaker?
...and what version of FileMaker will I need? Will I need the expensive FileMaker Server, or is FileMaker Pro sufficient?
Sorry for the confusion...
No they are not alternatives to FIleMaker.. I am saying that FileMaker can handle all your needs.
GoZync - http://www.seedcode.com/filemaker-sync-gozync/ is a syncing technology build in FileMaker.. You can add this to your solution to Sync if you don't want to build your own..
MirroSync - http://360works.com/filemaker-sync/?gclid=CNqMspaJi74CFYqFfgodJWoAlQ - Is a syncing technology that uses Java for syncing.. you can add this to your solutions as well.
You want to use FIleMaker, these just to help you in your research... check out the links..
Thanks again JP, these videos were helpful,
maybe you could also tell me what version of FileMaker I would need to purchase to make this work?
The latest version 13 will work fine... You will prob want to get the advanced version to develop in... then pro version to any users..
You will also need a FileMaker Server for Syncing...
