Advanced FileMaker Pro Developer
I have designed and maintained hundreds of databases for a variety of businesses and orgaizations. I specialize in FileMaker development, having been a user since version 2.1 ( I currently employ versions 11, 12, 13 and 14).
I am experienced in designing databases for business, for both stand-alone and multi-user installations. For many businesses, I have designed a single database to replace the use of multiple programs that required duplication of data entry (as well as duplicating their labor cost). I customize my applications to your business and your style of working. My database designs often include document retrieval and Internet functionality. Your database can be strictly for in-house use, or accessible via the Internet.
I have accumulated a broad experience in both hardware and software in over 3 decades within the computer industry. I have been self-employed since 1983, and understand the needs of a business owner and employer. I have worked with many different industries, including: medical / healthcare, retail, finance, non-profit, education, construction, and manufacturing. I have experience in understanding the various needs of these different organizations, and will perform the same for you and your business or organization.

Medical Case Logger
Designed for use by Radiology Technicians at a hospital destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The technicians employed web browsers to access a web-published database for a radiology group. The technicians created case records of the patients that the Radiologists diagnosed, and automatically produced reports for the Radiologists three times per day. The database was also accessed via the Internet by transcriptionists. On a monthly basis, an invoice for services performed was created automatically with a fully detailed log of each case.
Patient Record Retrieval
Developed for well-established surgical practice that maintained paper records and charts for their patients. Data imported from the medical billing application generated Patient records to expedite the search and retieval of decades of medical records.
Magazine Subscription Manager
Maintained subscription records for multiple magazines and newspapers published by a sports and cultural publisher. Generated reminders and reports of expiring subscriptions for marketing and billing.
Service Company Manager
Maintained customer records for a chimney sweeping company to store important details about each customer's account, including site surveys, services performed, future services, and service technician notes. Data was originally exported to Palm Pilot PDAs, and currently accessible by smartphone or tablet through Internet web publishing. The system also produces management and billing reports for the company, and links customer records to Internet mapping sites for directions to customer addresses.
