BOSTON, June 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — eBay Live! 2007 — FileMaker will
show eBay sellers how to efficiently manage their sales and business at the
eBay Live! 2007 (Booth 856) conference, June 14-16, at the Boston
Convention and Exhibition Center, Boston, Massachusetts
FileMaker staff will demonstrate how FileMaker Pro 8.5, the award-winning
database software, works with a variety of eBay applications, and how to
use eBay File Exchange with FileMaker Pro to more effectively run a
successful business on eBay.
“By using FileMaker Pro with eBay File Exchange or integrating it with
other eBay applications, millions of eBay sellers can spend more time on
the strategic parts of their business rather than getting buried under the
details of running their business,” said Ann Monroe, Product Marketing
Manager, FileMaker. “FileMaker helps business owners efficiently manage all
their business data with a single application that can track contacts,
customers, inventory, product sales information, marketing, procurement,
invoicing, shipping, customer service, employee data and other key business
Flexible, Easy-to-Use and Customizable
FileMaker Pro, which runs on Windows, Macintosh, Palm and Microsoft Mobile
platforms, provides business owners with an easy-to-use business
application that can be quickly customized to match their business
operations, whether they are using eBay as their primary store or as an
additional sales channel. FileMaker solutions can also be easily modified
as a business grows or changes its goals. All of a business’ data can be
accessed from FileMaker, whether the information resides in a database or
on the Web. There are three primary ways that businesses can use FileMaker
Pro with their eBay store:
— If a FileMaker Pro database is being used within a business, FileMaker
data can be exchanged with other specialized third-party eBay applications.
— If the entire business is being managed by FileMaker Pro, data can be
transferred to eBay using eBay File Exchange.
— Active businesses on eBay can also consider building customized
FileMaker solutions that connect directly to eBay’s web services,
eliminating the need to export and import data.
FileMaker Pro 8.5 contains a variety of ready-to-use built-in Starter
Solutions. The company’s Business Productivity Kit, a set of six
pre-designed business solutions, is available for free download along with
a 30-day free trial of FileMaker Pro 8.5 at http://www.filemakertrial.com.
