Hire Freelance FileMaker Developers for Your Projects

FileMaker is a database management system (DBMS) built for Apple’s Macintosh computers. It is primarily used for developing business applications and point of sales (POS) systems for small businesses. Generally, FileMaker is utilized for creating applications that help in recording transactional data pertaining to a business and retrieving data as and when needed. It is a relational database management system similar to MS Access, MySQL and PostGRE. However, it can only be used for creating stand alone systems, which run on just one computer.

What Do Filemaker Developers Do?

FileMaker developers specialize in working with Apple’s FileMaker DBMS. They have a good understanding of Software Development Kit (SDK) through which FileMaker applications are created. FileMaker Developers also understand the framework of Mac operating system and various APIs associated with it, which enables them to create intuitive user interfaces (UIs) for small scale business applications based on FileMaker. Typically, FileMaker developers create relational data structures after studying the exact information needs of a business and they also design queries for formulation of reports through which business owners can acquire information when required. For example, they can create an application for a small electronic store which allows the business owner to easily enter data related to purchase, sales, business expenses and hour logs of employees. The application can be customized to generate regular reports which help the business owner identify inventory shortfalls, calculate monthly or quarterly profits, and generate ledgers for payments.
