Wright Patterson Air Force Base Chooses FileMaker WebDirect for Inventory Management

Air Force Research Laboratory

The Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base had been using FileMaker for over 10 years for several different inventory applications and came to us to upgrade their FileMaker applications and utilize FileMaker WebDirect. In the new FileMaker system, they wanted to add automation to ensure equipment maintenance was performed on time. Additionally, they would save time by no longer having to load FileMaker on all the machines in the department compared to FileMaker WebDirect.

The Challenge

Streamline the management of their inventory applications by consolidating the databases and making them easy to access via a web browser. In addition, they wanted to increase adoption rates of the system.

The Solution

The solution was to upgrade the database to the current version of FileMaker and deploy a new simple interface that was intuitive and promoted user adoption. The interface is optimized for the browser using FileMaker WebDirect technology. With FileMaker being fully customizable, the solution was not only easier to access from any machine, but also consolidated the multiple different databases into 1 single application.

The Benefits

With the new FileMaker system now in place they have a modern web-based application that makes it easy for everyone to access and manage inventory. In addition, our solution allows them to continue modifying the application in-house moving forward. Everyone in the lab can now access the application via a web browser from any station. All of the inventory is in one single location making it easier than ever to access data in real time from anywhere in multiple departments.

"We were actually able to add more features than we thought would be possible within our budget. We always experienced a ‘can do’ attitude and DB Services was incredibly patient and easy to work with."

"The new FileMaker custom website interface is very user-friendly and easy to follow for our clients. In addition, it is much faster than the old Instant Web Publishing (IWP) interface. Thank you and all the others who have helped us out at DB Services. I am very grateful for the excellent service you provide us. Its nice to know we can call you for help if we have an issue."

"We needed a solution that would simplify the administration of our responsibilities under our contract with the State of Indiana. We have seen a dramatic increase across the state in the number of potential foster and adoptive parents that have begun the preparation and training process. This increase has resulted in a significant opportunity for children available for adoption. That’s a big win for everyone! And it’s all because we can refer potential parents to the proper state contacts efficiently and quickly."

"Thank you for our new database system. We transitioned from a carbon copy paper based system to a digital database. The software has saved us time and money. We used to archive all our jobs in cabinets, now we can look up a job in seconds from anywhere. The software allows us to easily email estimates to our customers in pdf format. In a year there was a return on investment just from eliminating the purchasing of our carbon forms."
Todd Cartmel
"The new system allows us to create and track jobs for customers along with inventory, something we had been doing with separate word and spreadsheet files. Because it’s now so intuitive, new staff members are able to begin using the database immediately without our usual training session and ‘cheat sheets’ for getting around within the file."
