FileMaker Increasing Renewal Rates

bar graph with dollar sign and arrow going up

Renew your FileMaker licenses by June 28, 2014 to save money, as FileMaker will be increasing its renewal rates by about 15 percent1. This is the first increase in renewal rates in several years.

Quick Facts

  • There is no penalty for renewing early.
  • New licenses purchased with renewals are offered at a lower rate until June 27, 2014. Save money by purchasing any additional licenses needed to take advantage of the promo price.
  • Maintenance program customers have the option to renew for two years for additional savings.
  • FileMaker will no longer offer discounted upgrade pricing for existing customers.

Now is the time to upgrade to FileMaker 13. FileMaker will no longer be offering discounted pricing for upgrades effective September 26, 2014. This means customers without a maintenance contract will have to pay full price for the new version.

Customers with a current maintenance contract or annual licensing conveniently receive the new version when it is released, allowing customers to decide when to upgrade and saving the customer from paying full price for the new version. Having a current maintenance contract is especially important now that FileMaker will no longer be offering discounted upgrade pricing.

"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."
Wayne Capek
"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 all of your expertise and valuable help. I am so grateful to have found DB Services."
Linda Findlay
"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."
