FileMaker Consultancy Services
Dale Technology Ltd also offers a number of FileMaker Consultancy services including:

  • On-line Web Access
    Most businesses now need to communicate with their clients via the web. Dale Technology can publish your existing database information directly onto the web using FileMaker Server Advanced. We use PHP to publish information to external websites, gather information from Web users, and create new solutions combining a Web-based front-end with a rich, FileMaker Pro back-end.
  • Customised FileMaker Solution Development
    Once you have identified a need for an IT database solution, we can discuss your requirements in detail before writing a "needs analysis", an in-depth brief and quote, complete with breakdown. Once this has been completed and approved, development can begin with goals and stage targets set according to the clients needs.

    Our systems are designed to meet/exceed customer expectations, within time and cost estimates, which work effectively and efficiently in the current and planned information technology infrastructure. These systems should be inexpensive to maintain and cost-effective to enhance.

    It is vital that the design and development process be, at every stage, a joint collaboration between Dale and the client. While the team at Dale specialise in Database design, nobody knows your business or your staff like you do.
  • Redevelopment of Existing Systems
    Our extensive expertise and experience can help customers enhance their current systems, improving performance, reliability and usability.
  • FileMaker Integration with QuickBooks
    We can facilitate integration between your existing FileMaker invoicing solution and your QuickBooks accounting software, eliminating the need for double entry and the risk of user input errors.
  • Conversion to FileMaker 9
    The change in format introduced by FileMaker with version 7 is a complex transition for users. It can bring many benefits but is an upgrade that should not be taken lightly. We are happy to advise you on the benefits and likely costs of transition to FileMaker 9.
  • Support
    We provide both FileMaker and General IT support for a number of companies. We have experience of setting up VPN and other forms of remote access. We also employ the Cisco WebEx Remote Support Suite to ensure a complete support solution is provided.
