FileMaker, Inc. is Now Claris International, Inc.

Earlier this year, FileMaker was announced as the top Workplace Innovation Platform in the world, and on August 6th, FileMaker, Inc. announced their rebrand to Claris International, Inc. as well as the acquisition of Stamplay.

FileMaker Reborn as Claris

claris filemaker logoThe name change is a return to the original name of the company, which was called Claris from 1986-1998. FileMaker, Inc. has been the name of the organization since 1998, a change that was made to reflect their focus on the FileMaker product. Now as the company looks to expand past just the FileMaker product, it has been rebranded back to their original name Claris. The rebranding to Claris International, Inc. is also a commitment to meet the company’s mission: bringing “power to the problem solvers”.

Claris International, Inc. CEO Brad Freitag says: “Claris stems from the Latin root ‘clarus,’ which means ‘clear, bright and shining'. Nothing better encapsulates the company’s mission: to empower the problem-solver with smart solutions that work for their business. By extending the reach of our platform as a modern, multi-faceted, and powerful merger of on-premises custom apps and third-party services, our customers can streamline their business processes across the cloud services that they use every day.”

Claris Connect

The company also acquired the Italian startup and product Stamplay, and rebranded it Claris Connect. The product will allow users to integrate easily with 3rd party cloud software, connect cloud and on-prem software and quickly integrate common business applications such as MailChimp, Slack, and more.

The Future of Claris

Looking ahead, Vice President of Products & Design, Srini Gurrapu forecasts that Claris Next Generation will “leverage the full power of modern workflow apps”, and use AI to create apps “delivered as a service.”

Kevin Hammond, DB Services CEO, is looking forward to the future of Claris. "Claris International is now the parent company of the platform and FileMaker becomes one of many different offerings to customers. We are very excited about Claris Connect, Claris Next Gen, and Claris FileMaker as they will provide more innovation and value to customers."

"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."
