The City of Austin is putting a ‘fleet of iPads’ and the FileMaker Go app to work to help streamline exhibitors management at the Austin Convention Center. As Apple Insider reports, the city has been able to deploy specialized apps based on the FileMaker database software …

… Austin’s database administrator Jeff Moore outlined how his group is using FileMaker Go to turn work order forms in their billing system into a touch-driven iPad app that allows employees to navigate orders and floor diagrams for city’s convention center.
The mobile app for iPad has improved employees’ productivity by giving them up to date information for clients and exhibitors operating in the Austin Convention Center

The Austin Convention Center is home to the upcoming annual South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive, Music and Film conference and festival.

Moore also said the iPad initiative is providing a 200 percent return on investment. I’m very glad to see the iPad at work in my hometown, and doing good work for the home of SXSW.
