About Us

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

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

Since then we have designed, built and supported tailor-made FileMaker Pro apps for over fifty clients across a diverse range of industries spanning Real Estate, Design & Advertising, Publishing, Architectural salvage, Museum Curations, Education, Geological, Mail Order and Timber Yards.

The past 25 years have been a roller coaster which has included some land mark moments including the incorporation of MacFactor into a limited company (MF Software Solutions Ltd) and our recognition as an approved Claris Partner (1997) and Reseller (2019) for the FileMaker Pro platform.

Our ethos is as fervent now in 2021 as it was back in 1994: to take the time to listen to what our customers actually need and help them streamline their business processes through intuitive software solutions.

But don’t take my word for it: I’ll let our customers do the talking…

“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.
