FileMaker is used widely at this large company serving many different departments in many different capacities. This in itself speaks highly of the product in that it can be used to serve so many different needs. Obviously, a company of this size has many large enterprise solutions but those do not handle the needs of individual departments that need highly customized solutions to streamline their operations. Spreadsheets and documents can only be stretched so far before they become their own issues. FileMaker fills in that large gap between what spreadsheets can easily handle and where the large enterprise application takes over. That is a large gap and that is also FileMaker's sweet spot!
  • Adaptable to most any use.
  • Easily scale from small tasks to very large complex solutions.
  • Create fine grained user roles.
  • Connect to other applications using a REST based API.
  • Allow other solution to connect using a REST based API.
  • Not great for use by multiple developers at the same time.
  • Could benefit from built-in audit logging of field level changes.
FileMaker handles the small to mid-size company or department use extremely well. Scaling beyond that is not its sweet spot.

Claris' FileMaker software suite provides the backbone of our entire business operation, and virtually all transactions company-wide are handled by the database built on the FileMaker platform. It handles everything from CRM, to generating quotes, contracts, invoices, and handling all equipment inventory needs, etc.
  • multi-user support
  • database integrity
  • simple user interfaces
  • speed
  • efficiency
  • better utilization of web/cloud support (its coming, but roll out has been slow it seems like)
Claris as an open platform offers so many options for rich database development to accomplish any task within almost any business application you could throw at it. I cannot think of a scenario where the options Claris affords couldn't suite
