Is your FileMaker License right for you?
Choosing the most suitable FileMaker license can sometimes be tricky. We are here to help. At fmcloud.fm, we make sure you are set up with the right option at the best possible rate.
There are 3 main types of FileMaker licenses:
No matter how many device they will use, Agathe, Bernard and Christian are 3 named users (individuals within your organization who will connect to your server using FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go or Web Direct)
This type of license is interesting if the ratio is under 1/3 (less that 33 users on a total of 100 will connect simultaneously). This license also allows people who don’t belong to your organization (customers, providers…) to connect to your applications via Web Direct.
SLA (Site License Agreement)
Based on the total number of employees in your organization, whether they use FileMaker or not. Sometimes very cost effective. This type of license is the reason why we ask for the number of employees on the order form.
Example: save 75%
Say there are 50 people in your US-based organization, all using FileMaker.
What do you think should the total yearly cost be?
Answer A: $25,800
25,800 USD/year is the amount someone with no knowledge of the Claris licensing programs would find on the internet
