  1. San Diego, CA - October 11, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, announces a new dedicated hosting plan for FileMaker Server 15 and 16. The Micro Team plan, available for $99 a month, gives the FileMaker community a more affordable hosting option to get their FileMaker solutions in the cloud. Productive Computing's dedicated hosting plans allow users to host their solutions in a secure environment and take advantage of the benefits of FileMaker Server 15 and 16.

This new dedicated hosting plan will offer the same benefits as the other plans: free setup, robust backup schedules, and SSL certificates. All servers are fully managed by PCI's certified hosting team at no additional charge. Customers can choose to provide their own FileMaker Server license or they will be able to purchase their license through Productive Computing at a discount. Every Dedicated Hosting plan includes: - Free personalized setup - Fully managed dedicated server - SSL certificate - FileMaker Server Admin Console access - Regular automatic backups - Dropbox availability - Optional Amazon Web Services (AWS) consultation - Access to FileMaker and AWS certified developers for assistance and questions - Secure uploads, downloads and connections - PHP/ CWP/ ODBC/ JDBC/ XML connectivity - FMI API trial access - Ability to use FileMaker WebDirect and FileMaker Go - Optional customized integration with third-party tools, AWS S3, and more Dedicated hosting plans start as low as $99/month and Shared hosting plans are available for as little as $30/month.

This vertical market solution was designed for the marine assistance industry and operates as a virtual command center to manage vessel assistance orders.

The captain receives the order on an iPad and, after assisting the boater, updates and submits the order back to dispatch for final processing. "We're excited that VSS has shown such success in the industry and we're dedicated to continuing to improve upon the solution and expand its capability and compatibility. We're committed to providing a product that is equipped to help our clients succeed and offer the ability for further customizations." Marc Larochelle, CEO, Productive Computing, Inc. VSS QuickBooks Functionality VSS is designed to connect with a client's QuickBooks Desktop or Online file. The solution pulls a list of items from QuickBooks that captains can use to fill out orders for services rendered. Once reviewed, cases can be pushed to a client's QuickBooks file as invoices either one at a time or in batches. When payments are applied in QuickBooks, information about remaining balances and paid on dates can be pulled into VSS. The solution includes list views and visual icons to indicate a case's status in QuickBooks Desktop or Online. For more information on this solution, visit www.vesselservicesolutions.com.

  11. San Diego, CA - May 9, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, is proud to announce that its entire suite of products is FileMaker 16 compatible. "Over the last several months our product development team has been hard at work preparing for today’s FileMaker 16 release. We are excited to have implemented FileMaker’s new external script step capability in all 11 of our plug-ins, which allows a developer to specify plug-in functions as script steps instead of as calculation results. Since this functionality is new in FileMaker Pro 16, this new feature will only be available when our plug-ins run in FileMaker Pro 16. Along with the new external script steps, we continue to support and include the traditional method of using our plug-ins as calculation functions for FileMaker Pro 16 and earlier versions. This ensures that scripts previously integrated with any Productive Computing plug-in will still be available and functional no matter which version of FileMaker a customer is running." Rachel Castillo, Products Manager, Productive Computing, Inc. "Compared to using traditional plug-in integration methods, applying FileMaker 16 external script steps within a solution improves development efficiency, provides clarity when identifying plug-in functionality from native FileMaker functionality, and assists with data entry validation. A developer now has the option to utilize the plug-in script steps at their discretion.
