Version 2.5.0

About this software

What is it?

A powerful contacts relationship management (CRM) and general information organizer built and designed on FileMaker Pro 16/17/18 platform for business and personal use. Best of all, you don't need FileMaker Pro to run it.

Why use it?

Through a combination of efficient and lean design (1), a self-contained solution (i.e., you don't have to purchase FileMaker Pro or extra plug-ins to get the features you want), and leveraging the power and features of FileMaker Pro and certain plug-ins from SUNRISE), you get a powerful multi-platform friendly (works with PC and Mac) and powerhouse solution with the added benefit of being spyware-free and privacy-protected.

An added benefit of our solution is the way it has been designed to work even in the event that your access to online services might suddenly go down. Not like other CRMs that assumes 100 per cent reliability of your internet services where you may need to perform REST APIs or the plug-n-play REST API alternative called Claris Connect (coming in mid-2020) to create all your whizz-bang fancy graphs, invoices, access to online calendars, grab data such as currency rates and so on), as well as access to the online storage of your information, we do not think "crossing your fingers in the hope that those web services will remain available" is the way to go (assuming you are willing to pay for a subscription to each service, which will get expensive when the costs are combined). It is far better to have a self-contained product that starts from the premise that you might be required to be on your own without internet access. With internet access, it should only enhance what you have, but not stop you from doing your work. The only downside you should ever have to worry about is whether the machine running SUNRISE Contacts has a reliable source of electricity to power it. We will assume you have taken care of that aspect.

More importantly, the solution is designed to grab data online and store it in the databases — the way databases should be used. It saves you money in the long-run on subscriptions and all the rest.

Of course, in the event that you do get online, you database will quietly introduce additional features, such as Google Maps / OpenStreetMap, Google Translate, PayPal/QuickBooks invoice creation, and Amazon OCR and voice-to-text recognition services (as well as access to Amazon's s3 file servers to store files and create links for people to download) to name a few.

For something with reduced long-term costs for the essential features, at least you have a choice with SUNRISE Contacts!
