Productive Computing, Inc. Releases Core² CRM Software for FileMaker Pro

San Diego, CA – May 22nd, 2007 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, today announced the release of Core² CRM for FileMaker Pro.  Core2 CRM is the perfect multi-user, cross-platform solution for getting your company's data centralized, organized and secured.

Built using the award winning FileMaker Pro database engine, the Core2 CRM allows you and your entire organization to intuitively manage all your company and individual contacts, letters, faxes, and e-mail correspondence history, group calendaring, employee task lists, letter and e-mail campaigns, notes and associated documents.

• Pre-programmed to exchange contact, mail, tasks and calendar data with Microsoft Outlook, contact data with QuickBooks, and contact data with the Macintosh OSX Address Book.
• A more advanced tab interface using the tab interface tool introduced in FileMaker Pro 8 which simplifies layout management and makes it easier to add custom modules to the system.  
• New schema provides improved functionality for databases where contacts are person/individual-centric while simultaneously offering enhanced organizational/company-centric functionality.
• Flexible linking between individuals and organizations, including individuals to individuals, individuals to multiple organizations and organizations to organizations.
• Track an unlimited number of Internet-type addresses (e.g., web, e-mail, AIM, Skype, etc).
• Track all correspondence (e.g., letters, faxes, e-mails, notes, tasks, and calendar events) in one portal with filtering.
• An intuitive menu bar for navigation throughout the system in addition to an updated interface design.  
• Improved correspondence-based activities and mail merge functionality.
• Improved mail campaign management.
• New import function accepts a standard delimited file making the process of importing from other systems quick and flexible while properly linking related information.
• Optional modules such as project management and invoicing are available for further customization and expansion.

“This vastly improved customer relationship management solution leverages some of the newest features of the FileMaker Pro software which increases the flexibility, expandability and usability of the solution for our end users as well as our resellers who customize the Core² CRM for their own customers.  In addition, it extends the reach of FileMaker Pro to coordinate and work with other popular desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook, QuickBooks and the Macintosh OSX Address Book to provide a completely centralized and organized solution.” – CFO, Keith Larochelle
