  • FileMaker Web Direct breakthrough web technology, available in FileMaker Server 13, that runs custom business solutions directly in a web browser on a desktop or laptop—no web development skills needed. Combine the power of a desktop application with the simplicity of a web browser to manage and share your business information. FileMaker Inc. do not officially support this next statement but Web Direct may allow Android users to connect to hosted databases using the web browser on their Android device.

The resident database developer is Michael Richards. Michael has been building database systems, using the FileMaker Pro application, since 1991 when FileMaker Pro was at version 1. Fast forward to 2013, Michael is older (hopefully wiser) and the FileMaker Pro products have consistently improved and matured to version 13.

Combine Michael's real-world database project experience and accumulated knowledge with the robust functionality available in the FileMaker 13 product line and you can have a productive database system tailored to suite your industry that will streamline the workflow of your business.
