The FMS Professional Solutions Group is focused on matching the appropriate technologies with your organization's needs. We strive to deeply understand the pros and cons of each technology through research and experience. Our relationship with Microsoft insiders allows us to use new Microsoft technologies long before they come to market. We've also built relationships with other organizations that are part of the hybrid platforms of today.
FMS has created websites, web applications and web services using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET with C# since 2001 when it was in beta release.
We consider Visual Studio .NET to be the most advanced and cost-effective platform for web development and have created a wide range of custom solutions among our Success Stories.
We use the highly scalable, cost-effective, and managed Microsoft Azure platform to deploy our cloud solutions.
We can easily deploy web solutions to Azure App Services with different slots for production, staging and testing. SQL Server databases on Azure are provided in a scalable manner with automated backups. And we have experience using the massively scalable cloud storage for blobs and files, plus the use of SSL Certificates to secure it all.
Solutions can also be created for private cloud environments and deployments to virtual machines.
Microsoft SQL Server is the primary database for most applications we build for Windows or the web.
Our team has extensive experience and deep technical knowledge of SQL Server internals to apply best practices for database design, writing stored procedures, transations, and performance optimization.
We also are leaders in upsizing databases from Microsoft Access datbases to SQL Server both internally and to the cloud.
FMS is the leading developer of Microsoft Access products and custom applications in the world.
We can leverage your investment in Access to help you:
We also have experience using Terminal Services and Remote Desktop to let your team run your Access and other Windows applications over the web.
The Microsoft Power Platform offers low-code solutions leveraging your SQL Server, Access, SharePoint and other data for Windows, web and mobile users.
We've created PowerApp solutions on phone and slate devices combining data with cameras, photo galleries, and GPS locations to revolutionize data collection and sharing.
Our PowerBI solutions bring Business Intelligence to your team. Dynamic dashboards bring life to your data. See summaries, graphs, maps, timelines, etc. of your Microsoft SQL Server, Access, and Excel data. Visually perform ad hoc analysis to better understand what’s happening. Share dashboards privately or publicly over the web.
We create Windows desktop applications using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET to leverage the feature-rich Windows environment.
We also support legacy Visual Basic 6.0 applications, address desktop deployment issues, and help you migrate them to a more modern platform or web solution.
A mobile solution is not simply taking desktop or web solutions and migrating them to a smaller screen.
It's about leveraging the features of smartphones and tablets to deliver entirely new solutions that transform the way people achieve their missions.

Although the industry is driven by web-based technologies, Windows desktop applications still provide unmatched functionality, ease-of-use, security and productivity for information workers.
We've created many solutions that integrate Microsoft Office (Access, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word) plus other Windows desktop programs like Google Earth.
These solutions can be much more cost-effective to build and can often be maintained and enhanced by non-programmers.
With a SQL Server database hosted in the Azure cloud, we can create solutions that take advantage of the strengths of multiple platforms while sharing the same data.
A public web site and mobile application are ideal for users outside your organization.
A Windows application that can share or download the same data lets you integrate it with other data, perform ad hoc analysis in Excel, generate reports in Access, insert data directly into PowerPoint presentations and Word documents, and broadcast emails from your desktop.
