Client Success Stories

Examples of Our Custom Software Development Engagements

Since 1986, FMS has created custom database applications for over 100 organizations in a wide range of industries. Our solutions tend to focus on helping decisions makers better collect, manage, and analyze data to improve efficiency, eliminate mistakes, and lower costs.

Here are just a few examples of our work:

Humanitarian Relief Logistics for the Pan American Health Organization

PAHO is part of the World Health Organization and United Nations. They respond to humanitarian disasters around the world.

FMS created their Logistics Support System. Designed to work in difficult environments with local language support, LSS is deployed in over 80 nations and used in dozens of emergencies.

Mercer Consulting

Mercer is a global provider of human resources consulting and outsourcing.

FMS leveraged an existing solution their internal team created, to make it commercial quality, more maintainable, and localizable for distribution to their worldwide customer base. Learn how we worked with them in this case study.

Interview management software for Harvard college applicants

Harvard College is the oldest and arguably the most competitive university in the US. Attempts are made to give every applicant a personal interview by an alum.

FMS built a web and desktop solution to manage the Harvard admissions interview process to match candidates to interviewers.

Defense Acquisition University

DAU offers continuing education courses for all branches of the US military.

FMS created a web application to manage their curriculum and course competencies to ensure our forces are properly trained. Read more about DAU's Competency Requirements Management System.

Inspection Software for the National Archives and Records Administration

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) uses our solution to manage their inspection results to improve reporting and operational quality.


Medivia provides education classes for large pharmaceutical firms.

FMS helped them create an event management system to efficiently manage thousands of events a year. The solution tracks large volumes of client information while minimizing redundancy and employee training costs.

Hot Mommas Project

A professor at the George Washington University Business School is an expert on female entrepreneurship.

FMS helped her create the world's leading case study and social networking website for businesswomen and entrepreneurs.

Software for the Washington DC Department of Public Works

The DC Public Works department needed to better manage daily trash and recyclables collections to ensure that all customers receive consistent service.

FMS created a system to better manage their services, costs and ability to schedule related activities such as street cleaning and snow removal.

Washington DC Public Schools System DCPS

Because federal property is not subject to local taxes, the federal government compensates municipalities for federal students and workers through their Impact Aid program. Every year, school systems need to support claims to receive this payment. The Washington DC Public Schools (DCPS) sends surveys to determine students who live or have parents who work on federal property.

Our multiuser Impact Aid Survey Form software transformed a manual process into a more efficient, accurate and timely solution. It led to increased funding well in excess of the cost of our application, and continues to payoff every year.

Software for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

NCMEC tracks and locates missing children and helps prosecute criminals. We help their investigators search for suspects across state criminal registries and web sites such as Google, newsgroups, social network sites, and other places where suspects lurk.

Our solution has improved productivity by more than 10 times, which means more children are protected. Learn how we got involved.
