Announcing SyncDeK Mobile For FileMaker Go and FileMaker Pro, Allowing Syncing of Up To Five Mobile Users for FREE

– Registration for limited public beta begins immediately –

MIAMI, Fla., July 16, 2012 –
Miami, Fla., July 16, 2012 – WorldSync, Inc. announced open registration for a limited public beta of its brand new product, SyncDeK Mobile, which supports deploying and synchronizing mobile databases on FileMaker Go. The beta program is open to all existing SyncDeK customers, and to the first 100 people to sign up at The program begins Aug. 6, following the company's return from the FileMaker Developer Conference. A unlimited public beta is anticipated for early this fall.

SyncDeK Mobile is free for the first five laptop, iPad or iPhone devices you wish to synchronize to your FileMaker Server, and additional packs of 5 or 10 nodes are available for purchase for US $599 or $999, respectively.

"We are very excited to be offering a free starting point for using SyncDeK," said Jason Erickson, CEO of WorldSync. "We think providing for up to five free mobile devices allows smaller organizations on tight budgets a way to get started and grow with it." He continued, "this also gives developers a free option to check it out, and maybe even use it for some of their own in-house databases."

WorldSync will be demonstrating SyncDeK Mobile during a special session, Wednesday at 2 p.m. in Splash Rooms 5-8, and from booth 12 in the Product Showcase throughout the conference.

SyncDeK Mobile Features

With SyncDeK Mobile, you can deploy local offline copies of your hosted databases on laptops, iPads and iPhones to allow for optimal performance when accessing your databases on the go. SyncDeK mobile syncs the changes made to any copy of the database back to the host and to other mobile team members. Other features include:

Fast - Using our patented hybrid (peer-to-peer and client/server) approach to data synchronization, SyncDeK Mobile offers the benefit of key device-side optimization and reliability techniques to greatly reduce sync traffic and increase performance.
Reliable - SyncDeK mobile is built on more than 10 years experience creating complete synchronization solutions for hundreds of FileMaker customers. Automated field-level conflict resolution and thorough double-entry protection measures at each step in the process ensure that all copies are kept in sync with the right information.
Extremely easy setup
- No new fields. No new layouts. No scripting. Just add a table occurrence to the SyncDeK database for each of your tables, relate the table to an internal SyncDeK table, and paste a script into each of your databases. That's it!
Automated deployment and version management - SyncDeK Mobile has built in deployment and versioning, offering automated initial and follow-on deployment of solution files to your mobile devices. No need to email new copies of files and wonder who got what. SyncDeK Mobile does the whole job for you.
Integrates With SQL Nodes - Easily add additional FileMaker Servers, MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, or postgreSQL servers to your synchronization community, making FileMaker Pro the best option on the market for deploying mobile databases to iPad and iPhone users.
Add, Change, Delete Support With Containers - Tracks database modifications at the field-level and supports add, change and delete operations with support for container syncing.

What Is It, Exactly?

SyncDeK Mobile is the combination of a server-side background process that you install on your FileMaker Server, a server-side (only) plugin, and a FileMaker database file which you add to your database solution. The SyncDeK database uses a FileMaker web viewer (layout object) to provide a simple HTML5 user interface to interact with the server-side SyncDeK process to upload and download database files and replication instructions.
