FM Chimp - Features

Features explained

FM Chimp is consists of an open & unlocked FileMaker Pro 13/14/15 database and a set of PHP Files. FileMaker has a Custom Web Publishings engine which means PHP can interact with your FileMaker database. This is also the reason FM Chimp requires you to have a FileMaker server or use a FileMaker hosting service that enables you to connect via Custom Web Publishing. We don’t use a plugin of any sorts. The entire process is server side and thus less error prone.
 
FM Chimp uses a set of PHP files to communicate between FileMaker & MailChimp. We use the MailChimp API 3.0 to communicate with MailChimp, which was specifically designed by MailChimp to communicate with external services and software products. API v3.0 is RESTful, self-describing, and fully discoverable, providing a "playground" for developers to experiment with the communication with MailChimp.
 
FM CHIMP offers a GUI to match your desired FileMaker fields in your solutions to your MailChimp list fields. Each field can be used in the segmentation of your campaign. Send an Email Campaign based on the data in your FileMaker solution, for instance location of your customers, invoice totals, purchases, interests, etc.
