FileMaker Delivers Bento 4 Holiday Kit

A fun, stress-free way to get organized for the holidays with free Bento 4 Holiday Pack for Mac, iPhone and iPad

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – November 22, 2011 – FileMaker today announced The Bento 4 Holiday Kit, a free, fun way to get organized for the holiday season—on a Mac or on the go using an iPhone or iPad. The Bento 4 Holiday Kit organizes your holiday cards and mailing labels, helps you plan parties, track gift lists, send thank you notes and accomplish other holiday tasks with style and ease.

The Bento 4 Holiday Kit includes a free, 30-day trial of Bento 4 for Mac, FileMaker’s popular personal database, and three additional templates that put holiday details all in one place. FileMaker’s Bento 4 won prestigious Editors’ Choice awards from both Macworld and PC Magazine and is the top-selling database in the productivity category for iPhone and iPad.

 The Holiday Kit comes with a Contacts & Cards template that allows you to apply the power of a personal database to organize the sending and receiving of holiday cards. Easily print mailing labels, check off who sent what and when, track card recipients’ names, addresses, family members, pertinent notes and even add images of the actual photos and cards received. Plus, the databases can be synchronized with Bento for iPhone and Bento for iPad so you will always have details at hand when you’re away from your Mac. Bento for iPhone and Bento for iPad are sold separately on the App Store.

The Holiday Kit also come with a Party Planning template that makes it easy to plan parties, track RSVPs, and all the tasks associated with putting on company events, cocktail parties, and family dinners.

On the gift-giving side, the Holiday Pack includes a template for tracking and budgeting holiday gifts. With this template, you can track purchases and costs and add a picture of the present. The template also tracks donations, and will provide a holistic tally of spending.

"Everyone wants stress-free holidays, filled with fun and laughter and no last-minute scrambling around to do tasks. That’s why our Bento Holiday Kit is a perennial favorite among Bento users," said Ryan Rosenberg, vice president of marketing and services for FileMaker, Inc. "With a little advance planning and the Bento 4 Holiday Kit, you can be prepared for the busy holiday season ahead—and have fun doing it."
