I have a client who owns multiple catfish farms and wants to see if there is already a filemaker solution out there that can help him track feed, fish and inventory. etc. with Ipads out in the field. Any Suggestions?
Sounds like a fun project! There is a FileMaker Starter Solution for inventory that you may be able to customize for your client.
Sea Breeze Farm is a pretty cool customer story that you may be able to get ideas from.
Hopefully someone from the community will recommend a customizable solution for you!
I guess there is unlikely to be an off the shelf catfish farm solution, but the beauty of FileMaker is that it is easily adaptable, so it should not be hard to build one from scratch—and get ideas from other solutions as suggested already.
I don't think there's a ready-made solution. At the beginning of this year I spoke with a potential customer who ran a dairy operation and he was looking for an inventory system for his feed mixtures, which cows were fed, etc. The project never went through, so I didn't build it.
If you build it, there could be a market for it.
Thank you all for your input. I am going to contact George at SeaBreeze Farms and discuss his solution with him. I think I am going to begin this new project early next year. Once I get it done, I will post it and we can see what happens. Thanks again!
