Productive Computing Press Releases

PCI's Full Suite of Products All FileMaker 16 Compatible

San Diego, CA - May 9, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, is proud to announce that its entire suite of products is FileMaker 16 compatible.

"Over the last several months our product development team has been hard at work preparing for today's FileMaker 16 release.  We are excited to have implemented FileMaker’s new external script step capability in all 11 of our plug-ins, which allows a developer to specify plug-in functions as script steps instead of as calculation results. Since this functionality is new in FileMaker Pro 16, this new feature will only be available when our plug-ins run in FileMaker Pro 16.

"Along with the new external script steps, we continue to support and include the traditional method of using our plug-ins as calculation functions for FileMaker Pro 16 and earlier versions. This ensures that scripts previously integrated with any Productive Computing plug-in will still be available and functional no matter which version of FileMaker a customer is running." Rachel Castillo, Products Manager, Productive Computing, Inc.

"Compared to using traditional plug-in integration methods, applying FileMaker 16 external script steps within a solution improves development efficiency, provides clarity when identifying plug-in functionality from native FileMaker functionality, and assists with data entry validation. A developer now has the option to utilize the plug-in script steps at their discretion. With this release, we're excited to bring you the latest cutting-edge tools available to further enhance and simplify your FileMaker integration experience with our extensive product line of solutions and plug-ins." Marc Larochelle, Chief Executive Officer, Productive Computing, Inc.
