Should you trust your data to a wholly web-based solution?
FileMaker solutions are databases that work on the web giving you the best of both worlds. Consider the following:
• Ownership of Data Framework: With Membership Keeper, you control the data AND the data framework. If you want to customize it, archive it, or create new reports, you can! If you are not happy with a web-based solution's attributes, you're stuck with an export of your data and no framework. Not very useful...
• Independence from Internet Access: Membership Keeper does not rely completely on an internet connection like web-based solutions. With Membership Keeper, you can work on the source file offline, you can be working on an upgrade offline and switch files when your new set of data (like a new school year of data) or customizations are ready. Can't do that a web-based solution.
• Security of Data: With wholly web-based solutions, it is super easy for users to share passwords, sometimes with unfortunate outcomes. With Membership Keeper, you can choose whether or not to put your data on the internet and how much of it is accessible on the internet.
• Customization: Membership Keeper is built on FileMaker® Pro, known as the most user-friendly Desktop Database software. Ease-of-use is a hallmark of FileMaker® Pro.
• Ability to Archive Data with Data Framework: Because with Membership Keeper you own both your data and the framework it is in, you can keep fully-functioning copies of your archive data. With a wholly web-based solution you are likely to end up with just an tab-delimited export of your data. For example, you might want to keep a copy of each school year's data in it's framework so you can still run the reports that you depend on, especially when gleaning alumni data.

Membership Keeper was created by Lesley Paiva. Over Lesley's half century on this planet, she has been fortunate in being able to pursue some of her passions. After Lesley created Project Ally for architecture / design firms, she was able to take that FileMaker® solution as a basis for Membership Keeper.
Lesley's family lives in the city and her children were zoned into a school that didn't have as many programs & opportunities as other neighboring schools with super strong Parent-Teacher Associations. After receiving the blessing from the principal, Lesley set out to promote the school and recruit other parents to build up the PTA at her children's school. Such an endeavor took organization though, and there is where Membership Keeper was born. Every year since 2004, Lesley has continued to improve Membership Keeper and add features. It is her hope that you can take the fruit of her passion for helping one little elementary school and help your school or group too.
