The construction industry typically tracks material, material costs, construction schedules, workers & assignments, dates and a multitude of other items. It’s common to have a centrally-located sever with remote access in the field. FileMaker software is ideally suited to this kind of record-keeping.
The Shed Shop
This FileMaker database tracks customers and their orders, jobs, job-site photos, sales orders, and reports including sales, sales by territory, sales by month by territory. Options are grouped by installer tasks, such as construction and electrical work.
The application includes an algorithm that segregates taxable items from non-taxable services, then determines the applicable sales tax rate by county.
The database is hosted on a server which allows remote access by field personnel.
