FM Starting Point by Richard Carlton Consulting (RCC) is a complete CRM that is ready for you to build upon. You can create the perfect solution for your needs through FileMaker development. Even the most experienced FileMaker Pro developers can benefit from having this free tool to use as a base or a good starting point.

Recently, FM Starting Point 4.6 was released with support for the new features of FileMaker 14 and integration with 360Works CloudMail. The CloudMail integration allows you to start sending emails right away without having to worry about the possible difficulties you may encounter when configuring a mail server or dealing with network firewalls.

Additionally, if you are interested in a plugin for large email marketing type sending, CloudMail allows you to send email blasts to any size audience and track real-time views and clicks, all directly from FileMaker. You can even see which specific email campaigns are driving traffic to your site from the data that CloudMail can pass back to various analytics platforms, such as Google Analytics. There are many other great features in the CloudMail Plugin, which you can learn about here.
