FMSWeb Benefits

1) Saves time - Printing all of the information included in FMS Web would take far longer than using FMS Web ... and then there's the time you'll save on filing.

3) Improved Cost Reporting - All details supporting your Cost Report are included

4) E-mail ready - You can send a copy of all of these reports to Completion Guarantors and production partners in a few minutes. (Password protected e-mail is recommended)

5) Easy Archiving - You can build up a library of Cost Report snapshots over a period of time (if required). 

6) Intranet/Internet ready - You can easily publish your Cost Reports to your Intranet or the Internet (A secure site is recommended)

FMSWeb Tips and Tricks

1. Maximise your screen resolution: Many reports are best viewed with your screen resolution set at the highest possible resolution. If you can, set your screen resolution to 1024*768. 

2. Reduce browser text size: If you are using Internet Explorer, do this via the View | Text Size option to view wide reports on one browser 'page'.

3. Use Ctrl-F: When browsing a report, press Ctrl-F, type in the information you are looking for, and then click on 'Find Next' (Remember you can move 'Up' and 'Down' using the Ctrl-F options.)

4. Budget Report: The 'Budget" report option always puts you at the top of the Budget Index which makes it easy to navigate large budgets.

5. Use your browsers Back and Forwards buttons: These buttons put you back to where you were when you were last in a page i.e. you don't 'lose your place'.

6. To send an individual report: select the repot using your browser, and then, from your browser menu, select Tools | Mail and News | Send Page. Your e-mail client will open and you can then enter the recipients address and send the page.

7. To send all reports: Start WinZip and use it to create a ZIP file containing the FMSWeb folder. Then send the ZIP file via e-mail. (If you don't have WinZip, you can download a FREE version from

8. Customising FMSWeb: You can add and/or delete reports from FMSWeb (using an HTML Editor such as FrontPage or a text editor such as Notepad). If you want a custom version, or you would like to integrate FMS or FMSWeb with other systems, send us an e-mail.
