  • FileMaker application for a textile company

    Our client is a textile manufacturing, dyeing, knitting unit and part of a large conglomerate. The factory runs three shifts and 358 days in the year with one week of downtime. Legacy FileMaker 5.5 application developed several years ago had acquired a critical role in the manufacturing process. Their initial plan was to migrate the FileMaker workflow management and Formulations Management System from FileMaker with its 1500+ files and hundreds of users to their robust SAP system. For several reasons, it could not be migrated.

    In the end, the client approached MetaSys to plan and implement the upgrade from FileMaker version 5.5 to version 17. MetaSys looked into the business processes involved, and all the dependencies in bridging the huge technical gap at hardware, software and process levels. An integrated project plan was developed and implemented. The technology upgrade makes it possible to implement long-awaited enhancements. The client also had mandated various IT Security Policy requirements. After the upgrade, Integration with Active Directory and the mandated audit logging requirements were implemented.

    The upgrade and enhancement project was too large for the In-House IT department. MetaSys provided high-quality technical expertise and the bandwidth to enable them to implement the upgrade. MetaSys continues to supplement the In- House team for the enhancements. One of the processes being followed was leading to an explosion in the number of files. MetaSys worked with the IT team to understand the issue and redesigned the solution. We consolidated the files which resulted in fewer maintenance efforts.

    Both the Management and the IT department now view MetaSys as a partner for their FileMaker projects.

    River Cruise Booking Application

The hosting architecture (FM client & server accessed over Citrix) was chosen since the client was looking to minimize both his IT footprint as well as the cost of FileMaker licenses.

    We implemented the backend FM database, the FM clients that contain the desktop reservation, as well as the PHP code for the web front end. This system is currently in production.Since the initial build, several enhancements have been made namely: Integrating separate files for each season into one application, Ability to book cruise segments and Pre and Post Cruise Add-on Tours all managed within the same application.
