Macumen, FileMaker and Mac Service and Support

FileMaker Services

Macumen has been providing database development, project management and database support services to its clients for over 16 years.

Macumen’s core tool in regards to its database work is FileMaker™ Pro because of its relatively quick development time, its ease of use, its ability to operate on multiple platforms, and its low cost of ownership. Clients can be assured that professional staff with the required technical background will be working on their projects – Macumen staff dedicated to database development are certified FileMaker developers (versions 7-11, and 13 – 16), and Macumen is a proud member of the FileMaker Business Alliance.

We are based in Sydney, Australia though also frequently  support interstate and international clients.

•    It must make a business more efficient by supporting and reinforcing business processes and workflows.
