FileMaker VS. Excel
很多人問超過 30 年的 FileMaker，怎沒聽過? 並不意外，因為是您不知道，哪個才最適合您? 先帶您重點比一比，
FileMaker Pro is a database software easy for design and use. It enables you to share databases with no more than 5 persons. FileMaker Server is recommended for a group of 5 or more persons.
It allows you not only to develop the necessary forms and build business systems easily for your companies, but modify and use flexibly. Developing with FileMaker shall be at least 5 times faster than with other languages or tools.
Business applications such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Hospital Information System (HIS), Knowledge Management (KM), Collaborative Cooperation Management, Assets and Warehouse Management, Custom Workflow Management, Operations and Sales, Industry Invoicing, Files Management, Business Intelligence, Mobile Business Application and Heterogeneous System Integration, etc.
Who can use

- Common users who have used Excel or Access shall love to use FileMaker.
- Database designers or administrators who have used MSSQL, Mysql and Oracle shall find FileMaker is much better.
