About Us

We are one of the UK’s longest serving Claris FileMaker Consultants.

‘MacFactor’ started out as FileMaker Consultants in 1994 with just one client: the renowned sculpturer Lynn Chadwick.

Since then we have designed, built and supported tailor-made FileMaker Pro apps for over fifty customers across more than 20 business sectors for companies ranging in size from home-based startups through to multi-user multi-site corporations.

The past 25 years have included the incorporation of MacFactor into a limited company (MF Software Solutions Ltd) and our recognition as an approved FileMaker Business Alliance member (1997) and Claris Partner and Reseller (2019) for the FileMaker Pro platform.

Our ethos is as relevant now as it was back in 1994:
“To listen to what our customers actually need then help them streamline their businesses by incorporating their tried-and-trusted administrative procedures into intuitive software solutions.”

But don’t take my word for it: here’s what our customers have said of us…

“MF Software Solutions’s contribution to Dutton Merrifield’s management processes and our consequent growth over recent years has been significant, and the service they have provided has been top notch.”

“We totally underestimated the impact that a proper database would have on our revenues. We saved time and money and through more effective systems offered an elevated level of service that increased revenues.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you.
