      does it make sense to replace excel with filemaker?

      Post

      Sorry that I'm very new to Filemaker and quite unfamiliar with it. I'd like an quick answer to see whether filemaker can replace an excel for us? Is it a good idea? 

      I'm  running a hostel in Asia. My team currently relies on an excel file as our PMS (property management system) to record the availability and check-in/out of our guests. It also help us calculate the room rate, and see if there's any outstanding balance.

      We'd like to make our cells more formatted for input, and limit the ability for staff to manipulate the database. Do you think if it's a good idea to replace excel with filemaker?
