FMS is a finance package that runs separately to SIMS but may be linked to gain information from SIMS.
FMS is capable of recording all order and invoice information for suppliers, recording budgets and commitments along with cash book transactions, petty cash and general journals. It also produces cheque runs and bank reconciliations along with all the period end/year end procedures.
