The founder of the company Advanced FileMaker is Bob Harrington.   Bob has worked with the FileMaker program since its inception, and worked for a firm that was doing Real Estate classes and seminars which involved managing projects and events.

When FileMaker was first released the Real Estate firm was one of the first to use FileMaker to run the entire system.   Bob learned much about the FileMaker program and later began teaching classes on it with an international training company. Traveling all round the USA and even training in Australia, London, Canada, teaching at large conferences like MacWorld gave Bob a huge amount of experience.
After teaching for many years, a consulting company was setup to help seminar attendees and other customers.

As the consulting company continued, training was always a main focus and Bob starting training on how to web enable FileMaker databases. Which means shopping carts, status reports, submit forms, and other web tools.
