feedzon launches beta testing program for FileMaker web services


July 13th 2013 - After huge amounts of development, we're delighted to announce that feedzon has now launched it's first service into private beta testing. We were overwhelmed with applications and have initially invited a limited group of developers to participate. We'll invite more people next week and also as we release additional services into beta testing.



Easy integration


feedzon services don't require any plug-ins, so work with FileMaker Pro, Go, Server, IWP & CWP. You can integrate most feedzon services into your solutions with just a few script steps! It's really easy. No need to install plug-ins or learn their complex coding methods. Most feedzon services just require the Insert from URL script step or the web viewer.

The First Service - Barcode


The first service is Barcode - simple barcode generation producing high resolution image files in just a few simple script steps. No special fonts required. 25 barcode formats supported, including 20 x 1D and 5 x 2D formats. See here for more details about the barcode service:


One of the delays in getting to this launch stage was developing a 21st Century account management system that's intuitive, informative and easy to use. Based on feedback so far, we've definitely achieved this. The feedback also suggests that as beta testing goes, we've got it right first time, because it just works right out of the box. Happy days!
