About the submitted project:

Group A – Connect is our submitted application with which we were able to win the Claris Excellence award. With Connect it is possible to have 1 integrated solution where business processes are streamlined across the many local offices. The solution was designed for FileMaker Pro and a mobile version on FileMaker Go.

For this project, there was an intense collaboration with UI and UX experts, the innovative design, mobile application, and various integrations with FileMaker Data API provide an exceptional user experience. Due to the complexity of the project, it was necessary to use innovative development techniques.

We faced an unprecedented challenge to maintain good performance for many users. We are implementing a scaled and segmented architecture with multiple FileMaker Server installations synchronizing data with a centralized database up and down to accommodate 1000 users.

For us, this project is very challenging and we are learning a tremendous amount every day. Both on a technical level and in project management.
