FileMaker Pro

Sounds Essential provides FileMaker database development services, building intuitive custom database solutions for our clients. Capable of running on PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad, these solutions help streamline workflow and manage your data. Off the shelf software products invariably don't meet the all needs of a business, and this is where a custom built solution comes to the fore. Contact us to find out how we can help you develop a solution that meets your business needs exactly.

  Custom Database Design

A custom-built FileMaker Pro database will speak specifically to your company's individual needs. Sounds Essential works with you to determine the role of data in your workflow, and how to best harness that data to improve your business practices.

  FMP Application Development

If you already have a FileMaker Pro database but need it translated for use on a tablet or smart phone, or want an application built on FileMaker for use specifically on a particular device, we can help.

  FileMaker Pro Training

Whether we've created a database for you, or you have a FileMaker Pro database, Sounds Essential can help your staff and employees gain familiarity and mastery of it.

  • Duncan is very honest and transparent, and the quality of work has been amazing!! He is also very good at explaining to a lay person such as my self what, how, and why of it all, which I learned a lot from. Would hire again in a heart beat.

    Charles Dwan
    Owner, Chef's Trading
  • Duncan has been an AWESOME example of professionalism and service.  Despite the time differences, he has been very quick to respond to the requests and has been very thorough, giving his time through Skype/shared screen, to fully understand the project. Bridging the gap between a customer's requests and the technical specifications is not always an easy task, but he was patient, knowledgeable and very helpful indeed. I would recommend him very highly.
