    Small businesses can use the Business Productivity Kit immediately for tracking customer and vendor contacts, sales, product information, invoicing, shipping and other key business data all in an integrated database solution. The Kit also provides a "How to Build This Solution Yourself Learning Guide" complete with sample graphics to assist users in customizing a database.

    "Small businesses have many of the same needs as larger businesses. They both need to organize, share and manage information. The chief difference is that small businesses have far fewer resources," said Ryan Rosenberg, vice president, Marketing and Services, FileMaker. "By easily managing all the data that makes a business run, our Business Productivity Kit quickly gives small businesses the power and simplicity of FileMaker to help these businesses run more smoothly and more intelligently."

    Using FileMaker Business Productivity Kit, small businesses can:

    -- Manage contacts and companies

    -- Organize products and inventory

    -- Process sales orders

    -- Track projects and productions

    -- Send targeted mailings to customers

    -- Produce invoices, reports and mailing labels

    The Business Productivity Kit is an integrated set of business solutions (Contacts, Email Manager, Inventory, Projects and Sales Orders) with an easy-to-use Main Menu. Each of the five solutions "talk effectively" to each other. The Kit eliminates duplication of tables and fields normally associated with having multiple files, and are visually enhanced and differentiated from the built-in FileMaker Pro 8 Starter Solutions.

    FileMaker Pro 8 runs over both Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X platforms and its support for nearly all major office applications such as spreadsheets means that existing data can be easily imported to the Business Productivity Kit. Non-technical users can also customize the solution further, such as adding specific company information or custom navigation buttons. Because it is based on FileMaker 8, the Business Productivity Kit can also be shared over the web or over company networks.

    How to download the FileMaker Business Productivity Kit and the free 30- day trial of FileMaker Pro 8

    The free kit requires the new FileMaker Pro 8 database software. The kit and a free 30-day trial of FileMaker Pro 8 are at http://www.filemakertrial.com/bpkpr.
