* Automatically generates authentication token
* Re-uses existing token to avoid unnecessary additional connections
* Automatically re-generates expired token
* Handles exceptions and provides meaningful error results
* Can handle raw form data for easier container uploads
* Provides customizable debug logging

 

24U believes that the whole FileMaker developers community will benefit from the FileMaker Platform not only having new powerful RESTful API, but also developers using the API nicely and efficiently, therefore they decided to make this library available as Open Source.

* PHP 5.5 or greater

Fox 1.0 – New Royalty Software for FileMaker Pro 15 Platform

Today OFFICER solutions announced the release of Fox 1.0, a new addition to their software line of royalty applications for entertainment companies. Fox 1.0 easily transforms huge sales reports for content sold on the internet into detailed royalty statements for artists, musicians and other right holders.

 

The software plays nicely with any digitally sellable asset, like books, apps, stock photos, fonts, games and films and has been optimized for the use at independent record labels. Catalog data and sales can be easily imported for royalty processing. The software supports any currency (incoming & outgoing) and royalty statements can be issued as PDFs, CSV and Excel files in english or any other, user-definable language.

 

“The music industry has transformed tremendously in the past years. Streaming music over services like Apple Music, Spotify and Youtube has become the main driver for income and officially surpassed physical and download sales in 2016” says Rudolf Chelbea, founder and CEO of OFFICER solutions. “While consumers profit from great offers and affordable pricing models for their music and movie enjoyment, the companies behind the content are having trouble to keep pace with the growing amount of big data. Hundreds of thousands of sales lines with values around $0.003 or less have to be analyzed, identified, resulting royalties calculated and paid to the original artist. That’s a tough task without a suitable software.”

 

It is a not so well-known fact that 70% of the music world wide is released by smaller, independent record labels. Unfortunately, the growing amount of data does not scale proportionally with the income of these companies and consequently, they can not afford huge royalty applications that cost ten thousands of dollars. OFFICER solutions has developed Fox 1.0 to solve this dilemma by offering an affordable royalty software for smaller companies.

 

Fox 1.0 is a real, installable software application for Macintosh(R) and Windows(R) computers, based on the newest FileMaker(R) Pro 15 platform. It is available as a timely unrestricted license for a one-time fee or as a monthly subscription. A special, low priced startup package is available for newcomers to enable them with a professional accounting tool for their digital sales at an early stage. More and extensive information is available on the company website.

FileMaker Add-Ons Now 25% Off

SeedCode is thrilled to announce their Year-End Sale. All SeedCode’s FileMaker Templates and Add-Ons are discounted 25% off through the end of the year.

 

“There are a whole class of apps that are tough to build but easy to modify once they’re up and running: Calendars and Maps are a great example. This is where add-ons and templates can give developers a big head start. SeedCode lets you quickly add value to existing solutions and this year-end sale lets you start the year with the tools you need to build up your solutions,” says John Sindelar of SeedCode. “Our customers use SeedCode add-ons so they don’t have to reinvent the wheel–then they spend their development resources customizing the add-ons for the unique features of their business.”

 

DayBack Calendar is a great example of how this works for customers. Multi-Day Resource scheduling is something you won’t see in Google Calendar or iCal. It lets you see your workload as a series of columns, each representing the tasks, activities or appointments allocated to each resource. These “resources” can be people, trucks, rooms–anything that customers are competing for within your company. Customers modify the calendar to show their own fields, and run their existing scripts when events are dragged to a new resource in the calendar. And just because customers have modified DayBack, it doesn’t mean they can’t take advantage of features in new versions of the calendar.

 

“If you’ve already integrated DayBack Calendar into your FileMaker solution you know that we’re releasing regular in-app updates to add new features,” says Sindelar. “This innovation means that DayBack just keeps getting better once you start using it, and it we look forward to deploying more great new stuff this way.” Recent in-app updates to DayBack Calendar include a pivoted schedule view, and breaking out your schedule by resource at longer time scales.

 

Some of SeedCode’s newest products that are on sale include:
* DayBack Calendar: add a drag-and-drop calendar that helps you balance your workload
* ProMaps: adds a scriptable map to visualize your found sets and plan routes
* GoZync: SeedCode’s unlocked sync framework for FileMaker Go is now even faster and easier to set up
* SeedCode Complete: a head start for new solutions, linking contacts, projects, and invoices to DayBack Calendar

 

All SeedCode solutions are unlocked so users can not only link them to their own work, but can modify them as needs change. Solutions are also extensively documented and implementation packages are available for customers who don’t want to do the integration themselves.
