[PR] Lasso Master Class Keeps the RV's Rolling
QUILCENE, WA - Not only is Connie Gallant of RV.TV "ecstatic," she has just saved untold thousands of dollars.
RV.TV is a consumer orgranization dedicated to promoting products and lifestyle ideas for the recreational vehicle enthusiast. Recently, they've upgraded their static web site to one powered by FileMaker Pro and the Lasso Web Data Engine. But they didn't spend any money doing it; instead relying on their own expertise in business and the Lasso Master Class book from briandunning.com.
"The Lasso Master Class served as an excellent introduction to using Lasso with Filemaker Pro," says Connie. "Brian was very encouraging and helpful throughout our learning process. At least 100 hours of research and study were saved, which in turn amounts to a great deal of money."
Even more money was spared by sticking with their existing FileMaker Pro system. "A minimum of 1,500 hours were saved by using our existing database, as opposed to designing and constructing html pages or contracting for the design of another application." Consider that in terms of $100 an hour for a consultant.
The beneficiaries of RV.TV's efficiency are recreational vehicle enthusiasts, potential buyers, and users of recreational vehicles such as motor homes, trailers, campers, boats, kayaks, and canoes. Users are able to view detailed product reviews as well as lifestyle stories to get them charged up for RVing.
"Our publishing staff is ecstatic about this solution. We have removed the need to design and construct burdensome html pages, keeping track of links, and fattening our site's allocation, thereby reducing the amount of time and effort normally associated with html-based pages.
"Working with images and captions using a Filemaker database destined to be online is a new project for us. From its conception, and especially after we read Brian Dunning's Lasso Master Class books, we knew we were going to use Filemaker. We absolutely love it and would never dream of changing to anything else."
RV.TV is an indepent organization not affiliated with the RV industry. Their mission is to promote the recreational vehicles lifestyle by portraying quality products through a series of slide-shows in their website. In the world of recreational vehicles, RV.TV is in the forefront of innovation. The site is clean and simple, yet presents interesting topics and images to encourage RV enthusiasts to get out and enjoy the RVing lifestyle.
