FCC Mix Program help you build a successful FileMaker Project

Caltec is here to announce a new program dedicated to the users of the FileMaker platform: the FCC Mix Program - FileMaker Training, Strategic Consulting and Coaching.

FCC Mix is a program with a personalized approach: not only we will be teaching you FileMaker best principles but also reorganizing your existing database in a more professional way as well as mentoring and helping you step-by-step to achieve the goals defined.

Our objective is to help you build a successful FileMaker project!

Take action! Start now your new database!

FCC Mix Program is suitable for you if:

  • you need to create a more professional database but dont know how to start; 
  • you have already developed a database but realised that there are some important concepts that you dont master and you are insecure to move on;
  • you have not followed the evolution of the FileMaker Plataform and you need to get updated to start a new project.

Based on our experience, we often see many users/developers with the right vision for their database but without enough knowledge/technical skills or motivation to achieve their objectives. This frustration leads to let their FileMaker databases/projects get behind their current needs, becoming obsolete and useless each day.

So come and join our program and get to the next level of your FileMaker skills! For more information, contact us!

How to manage a Sports Federation in 2017

Managing a Sports Federation is really a complex task. Every single day a large amount of data is generated from various sources and events and all these data should be stored, organized and transformed into information and knowledge for better decisions.
Unfortunately the most common solution is the use of spreadsheets or various software to store and organize data. There's no integration of information or strategic criteria, just grids of rows and columns, that are assembled in a PDF when needed.

But why is it so bad?

First, because these documents are locally stored on a PC, almost always, without an emergency plan or classification criteria and security!
Second, spreadsheet files allows changes without trace. No audit is possible, so you can't be sure your are looking to “real” information or not. 

The need for printing documents that “die” (no longer updated) when leaving the printer is not compatible with organizations that have to be live, dynamic and paperless.
Third, the problem when consolidating information from various  software packages that do not talk to each other,  from various operating systems creating a huge mess no one knows exactly what, where, or who has the right information.


A  Sports Federation must be a centre of command, reference and coordination, so a live ecosystem of information is needed. That's why we created SuperFederation solution!


The sports federation management team should have information “Live” or “On Live”. The directors, many times, have no knowledge but only a few ideas of what is really going on.

Caltec has expertise in implementing a smooth transition to a modern information system, so that your team can begin to use live tools as early as next season, or even in this one, if feasible.

Contact us and know what SuperFederation can do for your Sports Federation!

Please send me your price list! Sorry, but we don't have one!

Here at Caltec we often receive requests from companies asking for the pricelist for a software solution.
They say, “Please send me your price list”.  The person who asks the information is almost always a secretary...who's is also usually the designated person in the company to collect price lists and select IT solutions from a Google search! We love secretaries, but dont understand why the most important acquisition that impacts business should be selected by un unqualified professional!

In this kind of company, there’s no one responsible for iT, just a free lancer that does Anti-virus or Operative Systems reinstallations when needed.  People are still working with a pre-technological mindset: long hours, repetitive tasks, non-productive operations using general software tools available to any company. Average leading to average.

In these companies the computers are like type machines, files in the desktop are like papers and the folders are also full of printed documents. Managers are still asking for updates... and waiting for it, instead of looking at information real time whenever they want. They even think “organized information” means "documents stored in files"...And how do they share information? By email, by pen, by printing papers that can be easily lost or never traced back.

We are living in the XXI century, the information age.  Is it possible to believe that any company will still be alive and competitive in the future without an outstanding personalized information system? And is it clear that these information system should be carefully and properly selected and deployed and more expensive than that meeting room table made by that famous designer! Isn't it obvious?
