February 2, 2009

Bilingual/ESL Data & Report System for tracking bilingual and ESL students also featured

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — FileMaker, Inc. (www.filemaker.com) today announced its participation in the 2009 Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Convention & Exhibition, Feb. 2-6, at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas (Booth #2687). FileMaker will demonstrate FileMaker Pro 10, which shipped last month with a sleek new interface and intuitive new design, and Bento 2, the award-winning personal database software for Mac OS X Leopard.

Also in the FileMaker booth, Jeff Youngblood of ESL Software Solutions for Educators will demonstrate The Bilingual/ESL Data & Report System, a customized FileMaker Pro 10 solution that collects bilingual or ESL students’ demographic and testing data and uses it to create a multitude of reports – freeing staff from spending valuable time completing paperwork.

FileMaker will demonstrate the new FileMaker Pro 10, now featuring a redesigned and customizable Status Toolbar – similar to browser toolbars – that puts commonly used FileMaker Pro features, previously only accessible from the main menu, right at users’ fingertips for streamlined navigation, better workflow and time-saving shortcuts. The all-new FileMaker Pro 10 leverages the power of the intuitive new interface to bring you more innovative features such as Script Triggers, Dynamic Reports, Saved Finds and Send Mail via SMPT to help you create databases like never before.

Attendees will also see Bento 2, which now delivers easy importing from Excel and AppleWorks, convenient iTunes-style searching, quick sorting, instant summary stats and much more.

The powerful FileMaker database software platform helps schools collect, manage and report on student and administrative data. More than 10,000 K-12 schools use FileMaker in their data-driven decision-making processes to achieve greater operational efficiency, comply with federal and state reporting requirements, advance teacher development and monitor student performance.

At the FileMaker booth, educators can receive free 30-day trial CDs of both Bento 2 and FileMaker Pro 10, while supplies last.
