FM Starting Point available as FREE Business Database template for Users of FileMaker 10

Santa Clara, CA---January 5, 2009---Richard Carlton Consulting Inc is pleased to announce the immediate availability of FM Starting Point, the totally FREE FileMaker 10 template for Macintosh and Windows. FM Starting Point is equipped to handle Contact Management, Estimating, Invoicing, and Project Management, to name a few.

FM Starting Point is designed with small businesses in mind, “although we expect a number of non-profits, government agencies, and departments within larger organizations to make use of it too,” states Michael Prescott, RCC Senior Engineer. “This isn’t some reworked, old FileMaker database with new buttons. This solution was designed from the ground up to take advantage of FileMaker 10 features, and it comes loaded with a FREE version of 360Work’s Super Container Product.”

“Imagine popping open a FileMaker 10 database that immediately makes an impact on your organization, for FREE,” states Jesse Barnum, CEO of 360 Works. “This is a game changer for all FileMaker Users. The proliferation of desktop scanners and the need for document tracking and management is fully supported with FM Starting Point.” Open FM Starting Point, start a new project, and then drag and drop project related documents or photos right onto the project. The documents are stored in a secure account on the internet. The FM Starting Point database doesn’t get bloated with documents and images, it stays small and runs fast. Your basic FileMaker database can’t do this.

Jonathan Ray, Lead Engineer on the FM Starting Point Project explains “We completed a project to upgrade FileMaker Inc’s Starter Solutions for the release of FileMaker 10. We wanted to provide an enhanced solution that was a cross between a fully loaded CRM and FileMaker 10’s Starter Solutions.”

Developers and users alike are free to take FM Starting Point to begin development of larger and more involved solutions.
