FileMaker 10 Business Kits
FileMaker has produced two new versions of its Business Productivity Kit, updated for the recent FileMaker Pro 10. The kits are intended to provide pre-made tools for a number of business tasks, such as sorting inventory, processing orders and delivering bulk e-mail. The Standard edition of the software performs all of the above functions, and additionally tracks projects and production, while managing contacts and suppliers.
The Service edition is similar, but rearranged for a separate category of industries by means of including client and vendor contact tracking, and tools for managing invoices. Both of the kits are free downloads, though FileMaker Pro 10 costs a minimum of $299, and runs only on Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later. Upgrade options are available for earlier FileMaker users.
