    Default FileMaker Pro Software

    Anyone use FileMaker Pro Software and if you do, do you build your own databases? I am looking to put one together for Apparatus Maintenance and am looking for ideas along those lines. We can't afford to purchase software, but we already have FileMaker. Thanks.

    Post Apparatus Maintenance

    I have developed a database for Fleet Maintenance only to run into a slight snag along the way. Send me your address and I'll send you a copy of the software that I wrote. You will need Access 2000 or I can convert it to Access 97 for you.

    I am hoping that I can unravel a few minor kinks and start distributing this software later this year.

    I have included most common items like the following;
    • Weekly Maintenance Checklists
      Pumps
      Aerial Testing, Aerial Information
      Ground Ladder Testing, Ground Ladder Information
      Hose Testing, Hose Information
      Vehicle Lighting
      Emergency Lighting
      Generators
      DOT Inspection Checklist
      NFPA 1915 Inspection and Operational Checklists
      and more....

    Our department uses Filemaker and I have developed a vehicle maintenance program that allows personnel to write up issues and the shop personnel to do job tickets when our vehicles are in the shop.

    I am a Volunteer FF/EMT, but my real job is as a Systems Administrator. I work with Filemaker Pro every day. We have about 80 different database that I maintain and create new ones all the time. Maybe if you give me more info on what you are looking for I can help you out. Which version of Filemaker are you using?

    Default Fleet Maintenance Software

    I would be willing to send you the version that I have in MS Access if you have this version in 2000 format.

    You would be able to see the categories that I intend on having in the first version.

    Let me ask you this...........If you had the opporunity to purchase a detailed fleet maintenance program with free updates, free pda software and free updates for the pda program, would you pay $300 a year for this package?

    I hope to have my software completed by the spring of 2007 with the PDA software soon behind. This will be the first PM software program of it's kind to hit the market.
