DMA is a full-service consulting firm specializing in providing custom data management and POS solutions for a wide range of business needs: invoicing accounts payable/receivable payroll management decision support marketing sales customer trend analysis and job tracking. I also provide on-site project support and training and have a good deal of experience massaging data from other apps for entry into FileMaker. I provide complete desktop business graphics support using PageMaker and PhotoShop and direct mail management from artwork and copy to brochures mail list selection and list management. Most recent job: a complete job tracking and management information solution for Disney Televentures a joint Cable TV venture of Disney and 4 baby Bells. Other clients are as diverse as graphic artists printing salesmen general contractors home associations a management consulting firm and with the participation of Apple itself a complete order taking tracking and fulfillment app for the duplication company which duped and shipped Apple's own video productions to it's employees. Most of these solutions are large full featured and script driven and designed to provide a wide range of MIS reports. All have an aesthetic- ally pleasing human interface the equal of most commercial applications. After nearly ten years of developing FileMaker systems I have the kind of in-depth knowledge of the program which enables me to develop quickly building on my experience with past files and avoiding the „dead end¾ paths common to beginning developers. This is something I now do and use every day. Iåm also expert at finding data in books periodicals manuals or other publications OCRing it and massaging it in Word- Perfect to output comma delimited text files for import into a FileMaker DB. With regard to experience gained in my „first career¾ in video produc- tion and distribution in addition to producing the shows I planned mailings (in the strategic sense) purchased appropriate lists and designed and supervised the production of all mailing pieces. I can evaluate a market purchase the appropriate lists write copy design and track test mailings and work with printers and lettershops. Iåve supervised the duplication/ fulfillment facilityås work on our account as well as provided customer support and problem resolution. In addition Iåm an experienced Mac trouble shooter having purchased and set up countless systems for myself and others and have experience with networks as well. In terms of desktop publishing I¼ve done most of my own broadcast graphics on computer and am proficient in Photoshop and expert in PageMaker where with Photoshop Iåve been designing my catalogs and advertising for over ten years. In additon to FileMaker Pro Photoshop and PageMaker I also know Word WordPerfect MacWrite Excel TypeStyler OmiPage Professional and SuperPaint.
