Filemaker and web services

Does filemaker have the capacity to use web services? Please answer in plain English as I am only used to using filemaker for our local student campus. I create layouts and enter data. I also use basic scripts (had fun with dates and times). Our business currently only uses the system locally. We have not used the web publishing facility, but would like to move towards this as we have campuses all around Australia and it would be easier if we could use this facility than uploading spreadsheets into filemaker.


The Government would like to a implement system for providing colleges with a Unique Student Indentifier (USI). This system would require application for USIs amd verification of USIs to be via system-to-system web service calls. I don't know what that means. Could someone please explain.


Many thanks.
