Powerful data translation and syncing engine

Connect your FileMaker solution to web products and services with bi-directional sync.

BrilliantSync is an incredibly powerful translation and syncing engine that helps you connect your FileMaker solution to nearly any web product or service available with a minimal programming effort. BrilliantSync is a powerful way to connect FileMaker to the world. BrilliantSync allows you to take advantage of the wealth of technology available beyond the FileMaker world, but keep FileMaker as the digital hub for your solution. No longer do you need to reinvent the wheel and build everything in FileMaker. Each tool can work in concert to build your solution.

BrilliantSync provides a reliable and secure database in the cloud with connectors that do all the magic. BrilliantSync converts data from multiple sources to information the FileMaker developer can understand and work with in a familiar way. BrilliantSync streamlines integrations and can save significant time during the process of building a complete solution.

BrilliantSync creates the ability to:
* Reliably scale FileMaker data access to thousands of users.
* Allow for web form generation and translation to FileMaker.
* Provide access to web data sources in a way familiar to FileMaker developers.
* Reduce the complexities of APIs.

How it Works
Data sync is a very complex operation. BrilliantSync includes several advanced technologies working behind the scenes to make it accessible to FileMaker developers.

Web-based products and services each have their own API (Application Programming Interface). BrilliantSync translates data formats between your FileMaker solution and the web-based solutions you want to use and handles the syncing of the data on a regular schedule.

BrilliantSync uses a FileMaker technology called ESS (External SQL Sources) and an ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) connection to a reliable master external sync database in the cloud. Once you setup the connection to BrilliantSync with the built-in wizard you can read, edit, or create records in a BrilliantSync table and exchange information with the external solution without the need to write complicated code with JSON, cURL or the need to understand REST APIs. BrilliantSync takes care of all that work for you behind the scenes. You can work with familiar FileMaker tables, fields, and script steps. It even insulates you from future API changes.

BrilliantSync is built using fully scalable, load balanced, fault-tolerant, managed technologies via AWS (Amazon Web Services). BrilliantSync works the same if your database is hosted on-site, on a FileMaker server in the cloud, or in fmCloud.

What Does It Sync?
BrillantSync allows you to directly pull or push nearly anything including FileMaker ecommerce orders, registration details, product/catalog info, inquires, etc. with your web site. It allows you to scale FileMaker to thousands of users through the web. With the proper connector, BrilliantSync can exchange FileMaker data with WordPress, WooCommerce, Gravity Forms, Twitter, Facebook, Slack, QuickBooks, MailChimp, Salesforce, Hubspot, PeopleSoft, and any number of other web tools. In addition, our team of integration experts can build a connector for nearly any web service or solution available.
