Schweiss called Cimbura.com to assist with being a backup for their primary onsite citizen developer when he is on vacation or otherwise unavailable. This is important to reduce risk to their business because FileMaker is so critical to their operations. Cimbura.com also offered Schweiss a different perspective on their solution because we have experience with so many solutions across many industries. Through our FileMaker Solution Checkup we can provide Schweiss with an analysis of their existing solution and a game plan for fixing any issues that may exist in security, backups, structure, etc.
As FileMaker Resellers and experts on getting the right licensing package, we assisted Schweiss with FileMaker licensing to make sure that they had the right fit for their annual FileMaker platform costs. Schweiss also found that we could assist with optimization of their solution for speed and mobile devices as well as integration with products like QuickBooks to save on dual data entry. We enjoy working with their talented onsite developer and collaborating to help create the best solution ever. It’s exciting to work as technology partners with fascinating businesses like Schweiss to make their work more effective, productive, and profitable.
