Core4 - CRM Anywhere, Released for FileMaker Pro 12

San Diego, CA - July 13, 2012 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, today announced the release of Core4 CRM for FileMaker Pro. The Core4 CRM is a strikingly efficient customer relationship management system that offers organizations shared user access and control over critical business data. This cross-platform business management tool includes a full suite of integrated modules to help organizations manage their business and direct their work flow. From initial contact with a potential customer, through the sales and estimating process, and finally to managing and completing successful projects, the Core4 CRM will help you and your team produce efficient and organized results for your customers time and time again.

Core4 was built with a "your data anywhere" philosophy by providing users with access into the Core4 system in a number of convenient ways. By installing the award winning FileMaker Pro 12 database engine, the Core4 delivers a feature rich user experience when being accessed via a desktop or laptop computer. Using the free FileMaker Go App provides remote tablet access via an iPad. Accessing Core4 CRM through a web browser provides additional access when users are on the go or have limited bandwidth. Using techniques now available in FileMaker Pro 12, Core4 has been heavily optimized for access across a Wide Area Network and the web.

Coupled with Productive Computing’s new FileMaker Pro database hosting and SaaS service, Core4 is launched as the first full-featured FileMaker CRM solution offered under an optional Software as a Service subscription model. Customers have the choice to make a traditional one-time purchase to run it on their own server, on one of PCI’s hosting servers, or to purchase a subscription to the software “in the cloud” for a monthly per user fee.

Key Features:

  • Customer Relationship Management
  • Web Access and iPad Optimized
  • Sales Opportunities, Estimates, Orders, and Invoices
  • Remote Work Orders with Digital Signature Capture for Field Service Technicians
  • Correspondence History and Campaigns
  • Calendars and Activities (Tasks, E-mails, Faxes, Letters, Notes, Calls)

  • Inventory Management with Kitting and Assemblies

"We are tremendously excited about the new capabilities that FileMaker Pro 12 brings to our product as well as what our new pricing model offers to our customers. The ability for a customer to begin using our software on the FileMaker Pro platform without an upfront cost will allow us to bring a new level of efficiency to organizations who may have otherwise not been able to afford it. Helping businesses become more organized and profitable through the use of well designed, easy to use, easy to access software is our goal and the Core4 CRM ties all of that together in an incredibly valuable tool for our customers. With the introduction of FileMaker 12 and FileMaker Inc.’s continuing commitment to developing the best database software for the desktop, the Web and mobile devices, our goal and more importantly our customer’s dreams are made a reality."
