[ANN] Productive Computing Opens New FileMaker Hosting Data Center - WebDirect™ Now Available

1 post in this topic

San Diego, CA - January 27, 2014 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, today announced the opening of a new FileMaker® Pro hosting data center in Milwaukee, WI. In addition Productive Computing is now offering FileMaker 13 and WebDirect technology which securely runs business solutions in a web browser. FileMaker WebDirect is ideal for those who prefer a simple alternative to database access without locally installing software.
 
"We are so happy to bring our newest FileMaker hosting data center on-line to serve the greater Chicago area, Central U.S. and Canada. This 4th data center, coupled with adding FileMaker 13 hosting capabilities, is PCI's most recent effort in continuing our commitment to bring our customers the latest versions and fastest FileMaker hosting experience possible." - Marc Larochelle, CEO, Productive Computing, Inc.
 
FileMaker Pro hosting services allow customers to host FileMaker databases or solutions on Productive Computing servers in the cloud. All the necessary server infrastructure and software is maintained by PCI and kept up-to-date for optimum performance.
 
Watch the video below for information on FileMaker database hosting benefits:
 
FileMaker Hosting Differences You Can Count On:
While there are many choices out there for hosting a FileMaker Pro database, keeping things focused and simple to efficiently accomplish your hosting needs is our philosophy. Here are some things that make Productive Computing, Inc.'s FileMaker Pro database hosting service different:
 
  1. We are a large FileMaker Platinum development firm with extensive expert knowledge of all things FileMaker (not just a hosting company who may or may not know how FileMaker works under the hood).
  2. The biggest difference in speed your users will experience is directly related to the user's proximity to our servers. With 4 data centers located in New York City, Atlanta, Milwaukee and Las Vegas, the server your data is being served from is close by and served up fast.
  3. We have physical servers with SSD drives (nothing virtual, nothing outdated) and as a result have read/write times faster than traditional hard drives.
  4. We don't overload our servers with too many files or customers and we always use the latest version of FileMaker Server and OS security patches after we have tested them.
  5. FileMaker 13 WebDirect hosting is available to bring a desktop-like experience to users via a web browser without the requirements of traditional web programming.
  6. We perform local backups, twice daily backups to a physical attached drive, and to the cloud. That gives us 3 points of redundancy for disaster recovery and up to 30 days of data as well as weekly and monthly snapshots.
  7. We provide a daily DropBox backup for those customers who want the peace of mind to know their data is at their fingertips. No cumbersome FTP programs are required to get at your data should you need it.
  8. We provide direct FileMaker Server admin console access for users on FileMaker 12 - 13 where they can close and open files, download files, etc. We can provide direct access to FileMaker 11 Server admin as well for developers who request it.
  9. We provide a unique Instant Web Publishing (IWP) scenario for FileMaker 11 - 12 users that will auto redirect to a web page of your choosing upon IWP time out or IWP log out. We developed this technology here in-house and it's truly one of a kind.
 
Various FileMaker hosting server locations also provide a foundation for Software as a Service (SaaS) product subscriptions. Products including Core4 CRM, Core3 CRM, Core2 CRM, and FM Work Orders are available to customers for a monthly fee under SaaS.

      NightWing Enterprises is pleased to announce two new products for managing booking (in whole-day periods) or scheduling (in quarter-hour increments) of assets such as rooms, venues, equipment, people, vehicles etc.
      These two new systems are similar in design and concept but adapted for different applications. Both products can be used in FileMaker 13 or later, and both are optimised for FileMaker 14. The products can be used stand-alone, or hosted on FileMaker Server, and can be accessed by FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go or FileMaker WebDirect.
      In addition to supporting the placing and management of bookings, both products include a Gantt-style display of bookings for a user-selected period, and support drag-and-drop editing of bookings in place on the chart in FileMaker Pro. Bookings can also be edited on the chart screen in FileMaker Pro by double-clicking on them, or in FileMaker Go and FileMaker WebDirect by tapping/clicking on them to invoke an editor pane.
      Walk-though videos showing both products are available on our web site. Demos of each product can be downloaded free, and the products can be licensed from us starting from $140 for a single seat license. Developer licensing is also available for those wishing to modify the systems or incorporate some or all of the functionality into an existing solution.
      Full details are available from the product pages on our web site at:
      http://www.nightwingenterprises.com/products/BookingSystem_v3.html
      http://www.nightwingenterprises.com/products/SchedulingSystem_v3.html
      including demo downloads, documentation, screenshots, pricing/purchase links and videos outlining the basic operations of each system.

      Regards,
      Ray

      Troi Automatisering releases Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.0 for FileMaker Pro 13
        Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, March 11th, 2015--Troi Automatisering today announced the immediate availability of Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.0 for FileMaker Pro 13.   What is Troi Dialog Plug-in?   Troi Dialog Plug-in is a very powerful tool for displaying all sorts of dialogs in FileMaker Pro 13. The text of the dialog and of the buttons can be created dynamically by using a calculation. All from within FileMaker you can:   - show an input dialog to let a user input data in up to 15 fields and up to 4 buttons - choose these input fields to be any of the following: simple text, password field, popup list or check box - show a list dialog or very big text dialog - show temporary flash screens - show a progress bar for lengthy operations - add a standard icon or your own custom icons, including transparent PNGs - present a slideshow of images and movies fullscreen   What is new in version 6.0?   Version 6.0 adds several new features:   - Improved the Dial_InputDialog function: popups can now display values from a second value list. For this we updated the Dial_SetPopup function: there is now an optional last parameter, which sets the second value list. When set for a popup, the plug-in automatically displays the second value list, but returns the corresponding value from the first popup list. You can use this for example with a list of ItemIDs and a list of ItemDescriptions. The descriptions are shown to the user, while the ID is returned. - Updated the Dial_GetPopup function: when you add the switch "-SecondValueList" the plug-in returns the second value list for that popup. - Added the switch -AllowMultipleSelection to the Dial_ListDialog function: this allows the user to select multiple items from the list. Command-a (Mac OS X) or control-a (Windows) can be used to select all items. The selected items are returned separated by the pipe character. Also added the possibility to preselect multiple items. - Improved the Dial_InputDialog and Dial_BigInputDialog functions: added support for undo (command-z), redo (command-shift-z), copy (command-c), paste (command-v), cut (command-x) and select all (command-a) keyboard shortcuts in the edit fields. - Rewrote the code in several areas and made it more future proof.   More detailed information on all changes and improvements implemented in Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.0 and earlier can be found at: http://www.troi.com/software/dialoghistory.html   Suggested uses   - give your users better and flexible feedback - show quick instructions without the user having to dismiss the dialog - build multi-language systems more easily - make your solutions look more professional by using your own icons and title bars in dialogs - control the way users type in data: you can, for example, let them type more than 10 and less than 40 characters - show a slideshow of images selected from a found set, for example all images with water as a keyword - measure time like for a race or the efficiency of 2 differently implemented scripts.   All these features also work in a runtime solution. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what you can do with it!   Pricing & availability   A fully functional demo version of Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.0 is available for downloading at Troi's web site at: http://www.troi.com/software/dialogplugin.html   Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.0 works with FileMaker Pro 10, 11, 12 and 13. The plug-in can also be used with runtimes from FileMaker Pro Advanced 10, 11, 12 or 13. The plug-in is available for Mac OS X and Windows.   On Mac OS X the plug-in runs in 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard), 10.7 (Lion), 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.9 (Mavericks) or 10.10 (Yosemite). The plug-in also runs on Windows Vista, Windows 7 or 8.x. QuickTime 7 or later is needed for the Dial_PresentImage() function.   Licenses cost US$ 59 per user. Details on developer licenses and multi-user packs can be found on our web site. You can order licenses from our web site.   Upgrade information   For users who bought a license on or after February 1st, 2014 the upgrade is free. We have emailed all eligible customers a new registration string. Upgrades from licenses bought before February 1st, 2014 are available from US$ 35 per user. You can order upgrades from our web site.   About Troi Automatisering   Troi Automatisering develops professional iOS apps, is a leading developer of cross platform FileMaker Pro plug-ins and winner of the FileMaker Pro Excellence Award 2001.
