PeopleCare

Service Provider for Elderly Switches to FileMaker Pro

PeopleCare

PeopleCare is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization providing services to those whose age or physical condition limits their mobility. PeopleCare came to us using multiple programs to manage their daily operations, including a custom-built Microsoft Access program, spreadsheets, and paper files. To help solve these issues, we outfitted PeopleCare with a FileMaker system that consolidated their programs into a single, user-friendly location—the type of system where FileMaker shines.

The Challenge

In 1990, PeopleCare started out as a home visitation company for the elderly and continues today as a non-profit providing services to those whose age or physical condition limits their mobility. PeopleCare’s existing system was difficult to use and unable to grow with the organization, but being a non-profit, they needed a high-value, practical database solution.

The Solution

DB Services started with an existing template that gave PeopleCare a high-value starting point. We re-geared the template to provide the functionality of their previous systems in a single location. The final solution included migrating their existing data from Microsoft Access over to FileMaker and the ability to manage their Contacts, Scheduling, Volunteers, and Notes.

The Results

The new system is very user-friendly, allowing volunteers to quickly learn how to use the system, set appointments, and review their schedule. In addition, reports that used to take days now only take minutes. And of course, with FileMaker at the helm, PeopleCare now has a system that can easily grow along with their excellent community service.

"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
Owner
"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."
