We designed a Filemaker solution in collaboration with the Design and Print department at Brunel University of London. Brunel’s needs were complex, controlling their internal design and print needs servicing over 600 internal users, which includes a large and busy marketing department. We worked closely with Brunel to provide a clear and usable web-based solution that is easy to navigate. Staff can create their own accounts, then create and manage their own projects from wherever they want to. They can easily associate other staff members with their projects, check on progress, attach files and email or message other users.
The project is modular and uses Filemaker’s server software on Windows servers which makes the solution available to users over the web using Filemaker’s ‘webdirect’ feature. This is an excellent example of where a very bespoke database is better served by using Filemaker.
We cannot provide a link here as it is for staff use only but can arrange a demonstration of a sample version if you are interested in seeing how the solution works.
