This is a very cleanly programmed FM Pro database / interface, and is fully open and customizable. I think it is great that someone shared this for everyone to use freely -- Thank you!

This is a really wellmade FM template. Just beware that it's made for US users. It's hard coded to use $ and US date/time-formats. The calendar also lacks a preference setting for the first day of the week (Sunday/Monday). Otherwise highly recommendable.

This is a superbly designed general use contact manager/CRM/PIM filemaker template. Major Props to the developer! Hope it brings him LOTS of well deserved customization business.

I have been search, and for the most part struggling with small POS systems since starting my business within the last month. I finally decided to make my own in filemaker, which was not a good idea. I found this on Mac Update, and thought I would give it a try.

Not only is it the best POS system I have seen for a small consulting company, but the feature set and build quality rival that of high end and premium (in price) that I have used in the past.

Not only am I willing to pay for this, I am going to activley recommend this software to any and every small business I know. Thank you for making a well organized, solid app for free, but adding the support videos not only blew me away, they made the setup and use of the app a pleasure.
