FileMaker Solutions for Education

Databases are in every aspect of our lives...
As such FileMaker can provide you with information, ideas and resources which will show you that in education, databases are not simply for the ICT lesson. Database software is in fact a really useful resource that can bring about real improvements to all aspects of academic life be it management, teaching or learning.
 
FileMaker database software helps education in every aspect of collecting, managing and reporting on student and administrative data. But its true reward is in the classroom when you see how it inspires students to be creative and it rewards the teachers with more time to teach.
 
As an easy to use application FileMaker dispels the commonly shared view that database software doesn’t relate to real life for pupils or the applications they can readily understand.

How it Works?

Site license includes all software, the number which helps calculate the tier and price is calculated by number of teachers/admin staff, number of computers and number of pupils; the lowest number from this is then taken and used for the number of licenses. This then covers the entire school, inlcuding all computers and all staff/pupils for use of any FileMaker software product on that site.
 
Example: If your school or organisation has 50 total computers and 79 total Faculty/Staff members, you could purchase a Site License Agreement for your whole site based on 50 computers (you purchase against the lesser of the two counts).

† FileMaker Mobile is not eligible for maintenance.
