What Our Customers Say
We can try to tell you how WebFMS is changing our customers’ working lives and how much time it will save you, but we thought it would be better to let them tell you in their own words.
Here is Alison Deadman, the school business manager at Windrush Primary School, Greenwich, to share her experience of using WebFMS.

How to Shop With WebFMS
Can Anyone at my School use WebFMS?
Once the setup has been completed any web user associated to your account will have the functionality to click “Export to SIMS” any orders that are placed by this method will be available to be imported and approved as normal. The setup is done at account level.
Can I Still Print my PO before it is Sent Back to you for Picking and Packing?
There are multiple ways to print off orders within FMS the safest and most reliable is to use the preview option. The print button in FMS is also the order dispatch button so once FMS is integrated the Print button transmits the order to us, so using the preview button allows you to print before and after without the risk of duplicated orders (we do have blocks in place for duplicates though)
Am I Still Eligible for Next Day Delivery or Delayed Delivery?
Both Next Day and delay delivery are available and treated the same and just depends on what date is imputed to how we will deliver the order. If you would like next day delivery you would have to transmit the order before 2pm with tomorrow's date entered and the delivery instruction of “Specific Date” once selecting this a new field appears to enter your date. If you would like delayed delivery then use this same feature and use a date +3 days in advance.
