"Once the owner and general manager saw all the information we could track using FileMaker Pro, things really took off," says Hardy. "Before I knew it, we had all sorts of layouts and tables to track everything the company is doing. We have facilities in California and Texas, and we all use FileMaker Pro to stay in sync. FileMaker Pro tracks every project from start to finish."

The company is especially enthusiastic about FileMaker Pro 11 and its ability to create charts on the fly. "I had been using another charting solution that required a lot of manual calculations and time–consuming work," says Hardy. "Charting in FileMaker Pro 11 is unbelievably easy and fast. Our facility is ISO certified—and charting in FileMaker Pro enables trend analysis to help track and improve production efficiency and customer satisfaction."
Adds Hardy, "Another feature that we find very helpful in FileMaker Pro 11 is folders in the layout manager. Because we use quite a number of layouts, this feature makes it easier to go straight to a layout without having to scroll."
