New Heights in Financial Reporting for Businesses and Government

Bookmark and Share

Mitchell Humphrey & Co., a provider of software solutions and services to the public sector for over 34 years, has recently announced the release of ASK FMS 2011. ASK FMS 2011 is a cutting edge computer software reporting tool for business and government financial management. It is directly designed to generate reports by automatically linking related tables within document systems such as Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivables, Purchase Orders, Inventory, and Fixed Assets.

Mitchell Humphrey’s ASK FMS 2011 has several built-in features to make reporting easier than ever and is now supported on Windows 7. The tool allows casual users to write their own reports without requiring IT assistance or assistance from Mitchell Humphrey.

ASK FMS 2011 saves businesses and governments time and money because it can generate a written report within ten minutes verses several hours using Crystal Reports or built-in report writer tools. In addition, ASK FMS has all tables linked so the end-user does not have to build links to tables they wish to report on like they would with Crystal Reports.

Users can define their own templates and dashboards through a set of Chart Reports displayed on their desktop. In addition, multiple users can run multiple reports via their desktops, with real-time data at the exact same time and all frequently used reports can be created as desktop shortcuts. Many say the best features are the calculated fields, scheduling of reports, and effortless export to MS Excel, MS Word, and PDF. This easy-to-use tool allows users to create formulas, pull percentage totals, and output numeric values rather than text.

“ASK FMS 2011 has been a tremendous resource for us. It allows end-users to create their own reports and reduces the workload of our IT technical staff. We really like the formula feature because it allows us to create calculated fields based on existing fields from the tables in our FMS database. These calculated fields are also available in any additional reports that we create accessing the table we created the calculated fields from,” explained Mike McLellan, Senior IS Financial Analyst at the City of Winston-Salem.

“I have been using FMS for four years now. FMS allows us to seamlessly interface with our state-mandated system and is easy for our staff to use in their daily tasks. We would recommend Mitchell Humphrey to other entities that are looking for a more powerful software solution that is customizable for their individual needs,” stated Tracy Morrison, Finance Director of the Virginia Department of Veterans Services.

Building and Fire Professionals Find Latest Innovations at ICC Conference

Bookmark and Share

The 18th Annual International Code Conference in Phoenix, Arizona attracted approximately 2,000 building and fire professionals from across the country.  These pros included code officials, inspectors, contractors, builders, plans examiners, architects, engineers, plumbers, and fire service personnel; all looking for the latest innovations in products and technology to make jobs more efficient and buildings safer.

The International Code Council (ICC) is a member-focused association dedicated to helping the building safety community and construction industry provide safe, sustainable, and affordable construction through the development of codes and standards used in the design, build, and compliance process.  Through public/private sector collaboration, the Code Council provides support to government by developing codes that allow for safe and sustainable construction.  As a result, government does not take on the high cost of developing its own codes but benefits from code uniformity that encourages local, affordable, construction growth.

Municipalities are dealing with shrinking budgets, but have the ever expanding responsibility of protecting their citizens’ building structures and regulating community standards.   This can be a tall order for departments which may not have the same personnel they had a few years ago because of overall cutbacks.

The question is what can municipalities do to change things around and provide the same support of safety to their communities?  Consider the following:

  • Easily Deployed Technology:  Federal, state, and local governments are turning to the “Cloud” or subscription based software.  The capital outlay is minimal and budgeting is easier.  A big attraction of this methodology is it does not require staff for technology support.    Backups, security, and server infrastructure are all handled outside the organization.  The organization simply needs to maintain their Internet connection.  Another added bonus is the ability to access the system from anywhere.  Imagine inspectors being able to document their results in real time on a tablet or smart phone device, providing better service to citizens and businesses.
  • Citizen Communication:  Communities are becoming more and more technology driven.  Citizens are beginning to demand it from the communities in which they live.  On-line Citizen Portals provide easy ways for citizens to apply for permits, complain about a neighborhood violation, or praise a civil servant.   The Citizen Portals are self-service and push out information to the community.
  • Automation:  How long does it take to create a permit?  How many people are involved?  Can the approval process be refined?   With a new system, workflow can be created via email or task lists which allow instant approvals.  Documents can be attached and viewed.  All information about the property or permit can be centralized.  The inspection process can also be streamlined with data and information at the inspectors’ finger tips.

Intriguing?  Many of the ICC attendees found exactly this type of information to help them do their jobs effectively and provide real answers to their city councils and citizens.   Want to learn more?  Check out Mitchell Humphrey’s software solutions and its technology based on Microsoft Dynamic CRM at FastTrackGov.com.
