BrilliantSync – A framework for keeping WordPress and FileMaker in Sync

brilliantsync-logoBrilliantSync is a custom technology solution from Cimbura.com for connecting FileMaker to WordPress, with add-ons for WooCommerce, Gravity Forms. We’ve also integrated with Drupal, and can interface with other content management systems (CMS) if needed.

BrilliantSync is a framework that does the work to convert data types to information FileMaker can understand via ESS/ODBC. It has an add-on we call wpIgnite that syncs fmIgnite data automatically. Our WordPress plugin and add-ons assists with the integration and can save us significant time during the process of building the solution.

Since each FileMaker database is unique, we need to look at your existing database to assess the amount of time required to integrate, thus BrilliantSync (and add-ons) are licensed along with consulting services to implement a successful sync solution. Custom coding is required to map fields, and connect systems to enable the desired workflow. Integration projects often require budgets on the order of $6,000-$18,000 and beyond depending on many factors (number of tables/fields to be synced, complexity of desired workflows, web hosting provider, etc).

BrilliantSync is evolving quickly and becomes more powerful with each integration we complete.

Here are a few example web sites/projects that utilize the BrilliantSync framework to connect backend FileMaker databases to WordPress or other websites:

  • LKT Laboratories – Bi-directional sync of customers, orders, POs, products —  integrated eCommerce with WooCommerce
  • The Wedding Guys – Sync of tickets, exhibitors, photos, and shows (FileMaker to WordPress)
  • Hideaway Day Camp – One way sync if registration forms (WordPress to FileMaker)
  • The Jerome Foundation – Sync of registration information from Drupal

More information is available from the DevCon 2016 WordPress/FileMaker integration presentation.
