FileMaker Inc. (http://www.filemaker.com) has announced The Bento 4 Holiday Kit, a free way to get organized for the holiday season — on a Mac or on the go using an iPhone or iPad.
The Bento 4 Holiday Kit organizes your holiday cards and mailing labels, helps you plan parties, track gift lists, send thank you notes and accomplish other holiday tasks with style and ease. It includes a free, 30-day trial of Bento 4 for Mac, FileMaker’s personal database, and three additional templates that put holiday details all in one place.
The Holiday Kit comes with a Cards and Labels template that allows you to apply the power of a personal database to organize the sending and receiving of holiday cards. You an print mailing labels, check off who sent what and when, track card recipients’ names, addresses, family members, pertinent notes and even add images of the actual photos and cards received.
Plus, the databases can be synchronized with Bento for iPhone and Bento for iPad. Bento for iPhone and Bento for iPad are sold separately on the App Store.
The Holiday Kit also come with a Party Planning template that lets you plan parties, track RSVPs, and all the tasks associated with putting on company events, cocktail parties, and family dinners.
On the gift-giving side, the Holiday Kit includes a Gift List template for tracking and budgeting holiday gifts. With this template, you can track purchases and costs and add a picture of the present. The template also tracks donations, and will provide a holistic tally of spending.
