About Core4 CRM

November 20th, 2013

Offering organizations stringent control over important business data, Core4 is an efficient customer relationship manager that allows users the ability to manage calendars, contacts, correspondence, dashboards, document storage, estimates, inventory, invoices, payments, projects, sales opportunities, tasks, reports, and work orders. Through intuitive design and programming, FileMaker Pro plug-ins give us the opportunity to make Core4 CRM compatible with several third-party applications, including Apple’s Address Book, iCal, Quickbooks, Outlook, PayPal, and Authorize.net.

Mac and Windows compatible, Core4 CRM was built over the framework of the FileMaker Pro cross-platform database engine, allowing your team to access a single solution over all devices.

The Core4 CRM can be used “as is” or can be customized to fit your specific needs. After purchase the solution is delivered to you unlocked so any customizations needed can be done either by yourself, an independent developer or by us. For more information please email sales@productivecomputing.com.
