Database software can be extremely useful for businesses, so we thought we'd share this deal with you that we spotted this week.
FileMaker today announced that they are offering a special “Buy One, Get One Free” deal.
The offer applies only to FileMaker Pro 12 or FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced and is limited to one gift request per person, per household and per company between now and 20 December 2012.
What is Filemaker Pro?
FileMaker Pro is a Windows and Mac program that allows you to create database applications for your business.
For example, if you needed a client booking system and you couldn’t find an off-the-shelf solution, you could either create or pay someone to create one for you using FileMaker Pro.
As well as running on your computer, there are versions of FileMaker for your iPad and iPhone called FileMaker Go so that you can take your data with you or access it remotely.
If you’re new to creating databases, FileMaker Pro 12 lets you get started slowly. It ships with a bunch of templates called Starter Solutions that help you get past the initial learning curve.
The buy one get one free offer
The promotion is valid for the downloadable version of FileMaker Pro 12 or FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced purchased from the online FileMaker Store and applies only to new versions of FileMaker Pro 12 or FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced – not for software upgrades, updates, volume licenses and/or site licenses.
If you take up the offer, you can use the free copy within your business or give it to a friend, colleague, client or charity.
