[ANN] FM Books Connector Online Edition Now Server-Side Compatible for Windows and Mac

Recommended Posts

San Diego, CA - January 12, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, is proud to announce the release of its first server-side plug-in - FM Books Connector Online Edition version 2.0.1.0.  This plug-in is now compatible with FileMaker Server 14 -15 for Mac and Windows. 
 
The FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in connects FileMaker with QuickBooks Online and enables users to push and pull contacts, invoices, and other sales transaction information. A FileMaker and QuickBooks integration eliminates double entry and provides financial data to staff without multiple people accessing sensitive QuickBooks company files.
 
Version 2.0.1.0 includes an updated demo file to introduce and familiarize users and developers with the new server functionality, a new video for step-by-step instructions on how to install the plug-in on the server, and updated documentation for easier development and integration.

"We embarked on a mission to create a QuickBooks Online server-side plug-in so that users could streamline deployment and explore truly mobile options. By utilizing the server-side plug-in to handle the processing, users on FileMaker Pro, iPad, iPhone or WebDirect have the ability to shuffle data back and forth to QuickBooks Online without having to install a client-side plug-in." Marc Larochelle, Chief Executive Officer, Productive Computing, Inc. 

With a Server license, multiple users can now post to QuickBooks Online from a desktop with FileMaker client, from a web browser using FileMaker WebDirect, and from an iPhone or iPad via FileMaker Go.  The server-side plug-in allows users to capitalize on the mobility of QuickBooks Online. Sales staff, bookkeepers, or any employee can push a transaction from FileMaker to QuickBooks from the office, on the road, or working remotely from home.
 
Additional benefits of a Server license include:
- Added convenience of only needing to install the Server plug-in on one machine
- Unlimited users on one server
- Ability to connect with multiple QuickBooks Online company files 
- Faster processing times than client-side plug-ins
 
The FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in is available for an annual rate of $200 for a single user (client side) and $450 for a Server license. The Server license comes with a free copy of the single user (client) plug-in to allow for development and authentication with QuickBooks online. For more information on the FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in and system requirements visit www.fmbooksconnectoronline.com or call 760-510-1200.

      Announcing the Release of 360Deploy 2 for FileMaker Data Migration Ease and Automation
      360Works is proud to announce the release of 360Deploy 2! 360Deploy is an easy-to-use developer tool that automates development changes from a development environment to the production server. With the click of a button, it handles all tedious data migration tasks.

      How 360Deploy works:
      Clones the development database Transfers clone to the production server Imports the data from the production database and into the clone to absorb the new architecture *For large databases, it supports a scheduling feature to run imports overnight. Backs up the production solution in archived folders prior to import should clients wish to revert back to the old version Renames the deployed file Resumes the deployed file  
      360Deploy 2 leverages the new FileMaker Data Migration Tool, making the import super fast! Vertical Market solution developers will especially benefit from 360Deploy 2, as it allows for simultaneous remote deployment to multiple servers. Developers with shrink-wrapped software can do a simultaneous version update to multiple client servers around the world...all with a single click.
      Once you press the 'deploy' button in 360Deploy, there is nothing left to do. It sends the new version to FileMaker Server (or multiple servers), and then runs in the background on each server, so you are free to continue working, take a break, or head home for the night, knowing that the new version will be safely deployed to users on each server by the time you get back. You'll receive an email when the process is complete. Skip the hassle of fumbling with files on the server and stick to the 'one-button click' of 360Deploy for dev changes!
      Powerful features in 360Deploy 2:
      Simultaneous remote deployment to multiple servers Migrate data to new database versions using the fast, new FileMaker Data Migration Tool Import automation - automatically takes data from one FileMaker file and places into the structure of another file Scheduling feature lets you run the deployment unattended during off-hours Automated notifications when deployment is complete Work on your test server and easily deploy new changes to your production server We have put together a comparison chart to display the difference between the traditional development method of manually importing data, using the new FileMaker Data Migration Tool, or using 360Deploy 2:
      360Deploy 2 requires FileMaker Pro or Advanced 16, and production databases must be hosted on FileMaker Server 14 or later.
      After downloading 360Deploy on your server and configuring settings with the simple 360Deploy Setup utility, 360Deploy will deploy the development file changes to your users with the click of one button.
      360Deploy 2 is available immediately for purchase from 360deploy.com. Pricing starts at $195, which includes deployment with a single FileMaker solution (this can be a multi-file solution) and a single production server. It allows updated file versions for one solution to be deployed to one live / production server. There is a free demo license available which can deploy to any number of servers for testing and evaluation purposes.
      About 360Works
      Located in metro Atlanta, 360Works, a FileMaker Platinum Business Alliance member, has been providing development solutions for 22 years. The company is a leading developer of both shrink-wrapped and custom database solutions for clients such as NASA, Pixar, US Marines, Make-A-Wish foundation and others.

The Micro Team plan can easily handle a small contact or order management system or can be used by developers to temporarily host client files that they are working on." - Marc Larochelle, CEO, Productive Computing, Inc.

All servers are fully managed by PCI's certified hosting team at no additional charge.

      -          Free personalized setup
      -          Fully managed dedicated server
      -          SSL certificate

      -          Secure uploads, downloads and connections
      -          PHP/ CWP/ ODBC/ JDBC/ XML connectivity
      -          FMI API trial access
      -          Ability to use FileMaker WebDirect and FileMaker Go

      San Diego, CA - June 27, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, is proud to announce the release of Vessel Service Solutions (VSS) version 2.4.0.1. This vertical market solution was designed for the marine assistance industry and operates as a virtual command center to manage vessel assistance orders. VSS version 2.4.0.1 now features compatibility with QuickBooks Online via the FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in. 
      What is VSS?
      VSS utilizes FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go to allow BoatU.S. captains to fully digitalize the tow order process from beginning to end. As soon as distress calls are received, any employee has the ability to send mobile orders from the office or an iOS device to themselves or other in-field captains. 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.
