Our LuminFire team just returned from a week at the FileMaker 2018 DevCon in Dallas, Texas.

Our booth was a lively place where we provided brilliant technology advice to many attendees and talked about our new and updated products and how they can help solve real business problems:

  • fmFlare – Pre-built FileMaker scripts that make it easy for FileMaker to connect to web services
  • BrilliantSync – Data translation and sync services so FileMaker can talk to the world

The Workplace Innovation Platform

FileMaker’s place in the world is now clarified as the Workplace Innovation Platform (WIP). It’s a great description of what we’ve known for sometime…that FileMaker can help organizations innovate by rapidly building custom applications.

FileMaker Excellence Awards

Each year, FileMaker recognizes FileMaker Business Alliance (FBA) partners who have demonstrated an impressive level of professionalism and creativity in using FileMaker software to deliver excellent solutions to their customers. The FileMaker Excellence Award winners are chosen from over 1,400 FBA members worldwide who are FileMaker consultants, solution providers, plug-in developers, trainers, and hosting companies that serve a wide variety of industries.

This year, 10 FileMaker Excellence awards were given out at the closing session to organizations from around the globe. LuminFire was honored to have our work recognized through two awards!

(1) Outstanding Contributions Excellence Award to “Women of FileMaker
Women of FileMaker encourages women to be involved in technology through scholarships, mentoring, and other connection opportunities. LuminFire worked to rebrand and renew the Women of FileMaker group including building a new website and logo. Last year Brenda spoke and organized the annual luncheon.

(2) Advocacy Excellence Award to LuminFire
LuminFire has consistently delivered quality articles and free sample files to the FileMaker community…many of which have been translated and published around the world. We also regularly host FileMaker user group meetings at our headquarters and have had nearly 100,000 views of our curated FileMaker News. Additionally, our free fmIgnite starter solution has had hundreds of downloads since its release a year ago.

We are so honored to have FileMaker recognize our hard work supporting the platform with these awards.

…and finally our team photo from Texas.
