I started using FileMaker in 1991. In 2007, I became a full-time developer, starting New Leaf Data, LLC a year later. In 2016, I focused all my services toward inventory management on the FileMaker platform.
I help distributors and manufacturers from around the world with their inventory data problems. That's not hyperbole. My customers are from Korea, Mauritius, Thailand, the U.K. and of course, the United States.
New Leaf Data, LLC has been a Claris Business Alliance Partner since 2008.
BTW, I know I could use a more professional photo. But my goal is work to live. I believe FileMaker can help you achieve that as well. Schedule a meeting and let's start the conversation.
