For an example of fast-turnaround app creation using its software, Freitag says the company worked with a European hospital to make COVID-19 patient software in a single day.

FileMaker has 18 versions under its belt. It's tried and true, stable and polished. I use it all the time to solve issues too complex for Excel. It has run most aspects of our business for over 20 years, and I am quite amazed how well it holds up and adapts to the changing information world. Sure, there are a lot of other options available now. But, if you need something developed quickly, that can be altered quickly, FileMaker is a pretty darn good choice. Looking forward to version 19 landing hopefully in May.
