[prMac.com] Richmond, VA - FMWebschool today announces a free MacWorld Expo contacts and exhibitor FileMaker 10 database for the Apple iPhone as well as a free FileMaker powered contacts and exhibitor website for the iPhone.
"I get really tired at trade shows collecting hundreds of business cards. I am constantly writing notes on the back of them, and half the time I forget why I even have them." cites Stephen Knight, VP of FMWebschool. "And, once I have the card, I still have to enter the information later, or scan them into my database before the information is of any value to me."
Why not enter the information into FileMaker instantly and save perhaps thousands of trees? What about if you meet an exhibitor that has some really cool products and you would like to talk to them later? It's easy to lose a business card, but what if that information is stored instantly into a FileMaker database? Imagine having the power of FileMaker in your pocket.
To coincide with the exciting new release of FileMaker 10, FMWebschool has created a FileMaker database that you can use on your iPhone or iPod touch. Using FMTouch (a FileMaker application on the Apple App store) attendees can quickly add new contacts to their iPhone. Meet someone famous, and you can quickly snap their picture and enter it into your FileMaker database. Meet someone really famous, simply tap the photo field in the FileMaker database and have them add their signature.
The FileMaker solution will enable you to enter and save all of your contact information immediately. Since FMTouch allows for multiple tables, the database also includes an exhibitors table. If you find an exhibitor that you really like and you would like to talk with them later, the exhibitor tracker enables you to enter all of their contact details as well as information on the location of their booth. FMTouch will also enable you to add, edit and delete, your records as well as password protect your information. FMTouch allows you to run FileMaker locally on your iPhone, no internet connection necessary.
Instant information at your fingertips! Now it would not be fair for us to offer a really cool FileMaker contacts solution to only FMTouch users only, so we have created a special contacts and exhibitors website for everyone else. This cool website is password protected and enables you to add contacts and exhibitor details. The website is free and was built with FileMaker 10. So you will be able to use your iPhone Safari browser to access the online website. You can add, edit, create and delete records, so have fun! No one else can see your information. The website is hosted courtesy of FMGateway.
So if you are an attendee at the MacWorld Expo and you don't want to be the guy carrying around 100 miscellaneous business cards or exhibitor's flyers, check out our contacts and exhibitors database. Now you can have instant information available to you in seconds.
