Overall Satisfaction with FileMaker Pro

We use FileMaker Pro (KeyStone) to maintain schedules and keep employee records. It allows us to maintain a large amount of information in one space and has the capability to run a variety of reports and other features that are useful to me. It is being used by only a few individuals across a number of different departments.


  • This program is able to store a large amount of information that is easily accessible.
  • This program can run a variety of reports that can be helpful with my everyday tasks and projects.
  • This program has very easy search functions.


  • This program can be difficult if you have an environment that is distracting because it does confirm changes. They are automatically saved.
  • This program can be frustrating when entering data in multiple fields because the tab button does not send you to the next field, it jumps around.
  • It has allowed us to integrate multiple forms of data in one platform for different departments.
  • Allows us to track things like training and education.
The only other program I have used that has any type of similar functionality is ADP Workforce Now. I would prefer ADP Workforce Now overall because it is more user-friendly and can also accept tons of data, run reports, and more. However, FileMaker Pro has functionalities specifically for scheduling that is useful to us as a school that ADP cannot offer.
I have defaulted my rating to a 10 because I have never had to contact customer support. This may be a question that is more appropriate for our IT department. I do not have any personal first-hand knowledge or experience dealing with the customer service department of this software at this time.

This program is well suited for companies or individuals who are looking to hold a bunch of data in one place and need to keep it organized. I'd say it is most appropriate for larger organizations but could be useful anywhere there is a Human Resources Department, especially. Overall, it is useful but frustrating at times.
