Digital cupboard is a South African company operating in the music industry on various levels. They offer technical and database services to the industry. Over the last 5 years they have been engaged in digitizing large catalogues of tapes that are owned by Gallo Records, the largest independent record company in Africa.
Digital Cupboard use FileMaker as their database application and were looking for ways to access the database from Android devices. On discovering LiveCode for FileMaker they came across a piece of software that not only achieved their main goal but added a host of features they never expected.
They could now build Apps directly for IOS, Android and Mac, which greatly expanded their client’s ability to access their data. A huge bonus is the ability to work offline and later sync with the database, as their warehouse doesn’t have internet access. In addition, due to some extremely clever programming they can present a huge catalogue of 25000+ songs to their users on demand without overloading their local storage capacity.
