A typical TourTools® installation offers the advantage that FileMaker will host your solution files on a local server running Apple OS or Windows OS. Each user will access the server using a single-user copy of FileMaker Pro on their workstation. The workstations can be running Windows of Mac OS. This local-host configuration provides a big performance boost over web-based solutions and it provides peace of mind because you are in complete control of security – controlling who can access and manipulate your valuable data.
The performance boost generated by FileMaker’s proprietary structure extends to users who connect remotely to your office as well. Because it can utilize a number of different connection methods, FileMaker can provide an optimum and secure user experience for both remote and local users.
Because FileMaker provides a rich tool-kit for rapid development, your TourTools solution can be customized to fit your business and product model. Web-based solutions simply can’t provide the level of customization / price-point that you enjoy in TourTools. Putting it another way, FileMaker allows us to adapt TourTools to fit your operation, not the other way around. Making it an even more attractive solution is the fact that you or members of your team can undertake many aspects of modification and development. You can modify or create new documents and reports, integrating them easily into TourTools document management system.
