The features and benefits of using the FmPro Upgrade
Fixed Price Service - You know up front what the cost will be to upgrade your FileMaker Pro database solution to the latest version of FileMaker Pro. Each database to be processed can include any number of fields, accounts, layouts or scripts. This price includes file conversion, troubleshooting and delivery to the customer. Once the initial conversion has been completed, the files are made available to the customer via a remote server connection for review and prioritization of any conversion issues.
Script Conversion and Troubleshooting - Converted FileMaker Pro solutions typically require troubleshooting of a small number of scripts after the initial conversion of the files has been completed. Typically, a script problem requires anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours of troubleshooting, depending upon the complexity of the script and overall solution. Each one of the tiers of the FmPro Upgrade Service Pricing table provides a defined amount of time for script troubleshooting. During the first phase of customer testing, the problematic scripts are identified and priorities are set by the customer. Any remaining time in the budget may be spent on the addition of new features up to the budgeted time limit.
Utilize New Features - FileMaker Pro new features include: Script Triggers, redesigned modern UI and toolbar, dynamic reports, saved finds, updated ESS support for SQL databases, import of the latest Excel file format, and send mail via SMTP. Prior FileMaker Pro versions since FileMaker Pro 7 have introduced enhanced security features, auto resize of layout objects, and direct creation of PDF files from database reports. Performing an upgrade from older FileMaker Pro versions provides a solid foundation for future enhancements which can use these new features.
Improved Performance and Scalability - FileMaker Pro Server scalability has been enhanced from the previous 250 user limit to unlimited simultaneous users. Even workgroups having fewer than the maximum number of users can benefit from the server performance enhancements incorporated within FileMaker Server.
Improved WebDirect Performance and Scalability - FileMaker WebDirect increases the number of concurrent users supported for FileMaker web publishing. Need more? Consider the PHP Conversion service for unlimited scalability options.
