Featured Tech Deal : Apple Filemaker Pro 9 DBMS, from £257 delivered

FileMaker Pro is the #1-selling easy-to-use database software for Windows and Mac OS that helps you manage people, projects, assets and more – the easy way.

Information comes in many forms, from business cards to Microsoft® Excel files, images to SQL Server data – FileMaker Pro helps you bring it all together with a few clicks.

Convert Excel spreadsheets and other files to FileMaker Pro databases for easier searching, sorting, reporting, and sharing.

Or use powerful productivity features designed to make data entry much faster and more accurate.

Use FileMaker Pro to organise, sort through, and find information from individual contacts to large data sets.

Macworld, in a recent review (that you can read here (opens in new tab)), wrote "In the past, the lack of a Mac version of Microsoft Access has meant that Mac users didn’t really have much choice when it came to business-strength database programs. However, the improved SQL capabilities in FileMaker Pro 9 mean that the Mac can hold its head up in the corporate market at long last."

When someone calls, you will have the contact history, the project state, or the shipment status right at hand.

Bring up records by date, location, or content. Create formulas and calculations and summaries. You will be amazed how easy it is to be informed.

Filemaker Pro 9 (opens in new tab) is sold for only £257.33 inc VAT; it is actually cheaper to buy the boxed version rather than to download the file.
