RC2FM Connector is the brainchild of Automation USA, LLC and was developed to help propel the FileMaker platform into the Cloud age.
As long term FileMaker developers, FileMaker Business Alliance Partners, and also RingCentral Partners, we saw a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between two worlds. RC2FM Connector is among the first FileMaker integrations of its kind.
With features like single tap/click dialing, 2-way SMS/MMS, 2-way e-faxing, call logging, and the ability to download and store voicemails, faxes, and call recordings inside FileMaker data containers, our integration lets RingCentral users manage all their call related activities from within their own custom app.
Our integration leverages RingCentral's REST APIs to quickly connect any RingCentral business phone system (PBX) to any compatible FileMaker custom application.
RC2FM Connector is also a 100%
Cloud based microservice deployed on Amazon's AWS infrastructure, providing scalable, secure, and global availability.
Click/tap to call. Start an outbound call from any FileMaker supported device and pick up your call on any smart phone, desk phone, cordless, or RingCentral app.
Send and receive SMS and MMS messages right from FileMaker in near-real time.
Turn your FileMaker custom app into a full-fledged business messaging app. Just snap a photo and send using your business caller ID.
Download call history, store voicemails and call recordings as MP3s, and store faxes as PDFs (incoming and outgoing) inside container fields within your FileMaker custom app.
Send/receive digital Faxes directly into and out of
your FileMaker app's data containers.
Or select from your device's photo library or file system.
Your look and feel
RC2FM Connector is a backend service that offers no user interface. We provide the connectivity, you as a FileMaker developer provide the customized look and feel.
Our demo file template is merely an illustration of what's possible. You decide which features to implement and how they will behave.
Supports FileMaker Go
All RC2FM features are supported on FileMaker Go for iOS.
Supports FileMaker Pro
All RC2FM features are supported on FileMaker Pro/Advanced
Supports FileMaker WebDirect
All RC2FM features are supported on FileMaker WebDirect 16, and most features are supported in older versions.
Supports FileMaker Cloud/Server
RC2FM has been 100% FileMaker Cloud and FileMaker Server compatible right from the start.
Compatible with all platforms
All RC2FM features run on all platforms where FileMaker offers a native client.
This includes iOS, macOS, and Windows.
Connect using FileMaker Scripts and store data in native FileMaker tables. Get started quickly by pasting scripts and tables from our sample file. It's as easy as 1-2-3.
RC2FM works natively on iOS because it needs no plugins. While plugins are great for extending functionality, they impose the use of Server or Desktop technology.
No CWP Coding
RC2FM requires no web coding or complicated installations. RC2FM works great on apps that are not hosted, and works even better on apps hosted on FileMaker Server.
We deployed RC2FM as a scalable Cloud integration available across redundant AWS regions. All you need is a RingCentral account an Internet connection.
One low rate includes all standard features and functionality. What's more, each user is allowed up to three (3) concurrent connections on three separate devices. For example, the user may connect to RC2FM on an iPad, an iPhone, and a Mac at the same time and it will count as just one (1) user.
