FileMaker BPK Services Ed.
FileMaker has posted a new version of its Business Productivity Kit, the Services Edition. Unlike the standard edition updated earlier this month, which focuses on businesses that sell products and materials, the new one is oriented towards companies that provide ongoing interactions, such as lawfirms and doctor's offices. Included in the Services kit are several pre-made databases, covering client management, order processing, project tracking and other routine procedures. A how-to guide teaches users ways of customizing data. Services Edition is a free download, but requires FileMaker Pro 9; it can however be used with the latter's 30-day trial.
