The first video on this page is just a quick tour of the different modules within the NautilusFM Example file.

NautilusFM is a framework, a development methodology where everything happens on a single screen and where users cannot get lost or confused.  It is a paradigm shift in FileMaker development, and, in many ways, it is revolutionary, but it still uses all of the fundamental principles of FileMaker development, and is thus, really easy to start developing with. Experts won’t look at it which is a shame, but it’s their loss not mine.

The principle behind NautilusFM is simple. If you never leave home, you can’t ever get lost!

The Example file is now available for purchase.  We’ve been giving it away for the past two years, with more than 270 developers downloading it, but we’ve come to the conclusion that the reason nobody is using it, is because it was free, and thus not worth anything, and hardly any of the 270 people who’ve downloaded it have even taken a look at it.

So now we are changing our modus operandi.

Firstly the Example file is very well developed and can easily be used, without any modifications, as an out-of-the-box solution for virtually any business.

With some modifications it can be turned into a very powerful custom solution or a vertical market product which is what we are now focusing our efforts on.  So far, we have developed 2 of these, and have 4 more planned.  Each of these vertical market solutions has taken less than 100 hours to develop, using the NautilusFM Example file as a starting point.

BookIT has been designed specifically for coach trip companies but is suitable for any type of business that takes reservations for activities.  It can easily be customized to your specific requirements.  Click on the screenshot below to be taken to the description page for the solution.

GolfGuru has been designed for companies making golf reservations and/or managing events.  It can easily be customized to your specific requirements.  Click on the screenshot below to be taken to the description page for the solution.

The video below, which you might find interesting, is a history of how the relationship graph has evolved from its introduction in FileMaker 7 in 2004 to today.
