Posted by Justin Hesser on January 4, 2012

Businesses in a number of industries and sectors have turned to FileMaker Bento as a platform for their Mac-based database software since it was released in 2008. FileMaker announced that as a result of the software’s success, it has now sold more than 1 million units of Bento.

Ryan Rosenberg, vice president of marketing and services for FileMaker, noted in a press release that professionals in a variety of industries – including health, fitness and even entertainment – have made Bento their database software of choice for Mac desktops and mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone.

Positive reviews for the software’s intuitive drag-and-drop capabilities, helpful templates and clean interface have also played a part in the decision of many companies to consult a FileMaker developer and implement the software for tasks such as project management, inventory and event coordination.

“[Bento] is simple to set up and you can do almost anything with it,” said Jessica Fonseca, a Bento user who bought her first home with help from the database software, in the release.

Though its applications are beneficial for everyday consumers as well as businesses, managers may be able to make the most of Bento database software in the workplace. Reliable FileMaker consultants can assist a client to identify his or her technology needs and craft a custom application development strategy that maximize the software’s capabilities.

It may also be beneficial to seek assistance from a FileMaker developer that is well-connected with the software’s extensive community. This way, clients can take advantage of the development knowledge and support of Bento users around the world, allowing them access to more templates and advice on how to make the most of this database software.
