Development Support Required

We are a property services company that carry out a range of property reports for the residential lettings industry. We currently operate 2 core systems which were developed in house and have done the job for many years but we are looking at our options for improving/scaling this up.


At the moment we operate a Filemaker database using Filemaker Go, this is not hosted, only used locally on our employee's iPads. This was built with no prior Filemaker knowledge/experience and I'm sure will horrify the majority of developers on here! But it has "worked" for us for the past 7 years and has been very inexpensive.


We also use a PHP database, these 2 systems currently do not communicate with each other as our "expertise" falls short of integrating the 2 and we now don't have the time to learn how to do this.


We are currently looking at our options, one of which is just licensing an existing piece of software. The other is further developing our Filemaker solution.


We are looking for a developer who can either integrate both systems or build one from the ground up. The most important functionality we want to introduce is offline syncing but can list full requirement if required.


Many thanks
