Want to keep up? Take the leap towards FileMaker Hosting and Cloud Services

21 Nov 2016

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you'll have heard of FileMaker. Millions of people in organisations around the world use the FileMaker Platform to manage contacts, inventory, projects and more. Not only does it enable automation and greater business efficiency, but interactivity, scalability and mobility too.

Managed services have exploded onto the scene in recent years, and Ian Pirrie, Director of The FMStudio, an Australian professional services company, says that one of the easiest ways to save time and money in today’s IT environment is to take your FileMaker System and push it to the cloud - not iCloud, but their cloud.

“We provide FileMaker hosting services, and we’re here to help,” he says. “Instead of managing your own machines, drives, and networks to access and share data with your team, you can have it all done for you - by us offsite in our world class computing facilities.”

What this means is that your FileMaker system resides on dedicated servers at GlobalSwitch, one of the largest and most secure data centres in the Southern Hemisphere. This has the potential to significantly reduce your capital and software costs, while improving your data security, network speed and connectivity with 100Mbps bandwidth in both directions.

“FileMaker database hosting offers benefits to everyone – large teams, small teams, and even sole users,” Pirrie says. “Putting your data in a professionally managed, secure, and up-to-date environment that is accessible from any device, anywhere, is a game changer.”

While tech-savvy start-ups and big businesses are leading the way in this area, Pirrie believes that mobile and cloud-based services are the future for other businesses too.

“Small to medium sized businesses and companies that don't have an IT department are still finding their way into this space, but we're providing the tools and the services that will enable them to do that,” he says. “The FMStudio is providing software and service solutions that make the step into mobile and cloud-based services accessible to them”.

The team at the FMStudio provide simply powerful FileMaker business solutions. Demonstrable results are achieved through understanding their clients and their businesses, listening to and interpreting their requirements, before translating those needs into rapidly deployed FileMaker Solutions.

“If you are planning for mobile solutions, transitioning to the cloud, or integrating with web API, we have a wealth of experience in all areas of FileMaker development and dedicated hosting services. Your best bet is to outsource this to someone who can do it better and cheaper than you. Less costs, and certainly less headache. That’s us.”
