Food Management Partners is always expanding so, they were looking for an all-in-one tool to handle day-to-day accounting issues like payroll, accounts payable, and HR as well as a team that could handle multi-location circumstances.
In 2012, Express Information Systems suggested, implemented, and trained the FMP team on Microsoft Dynamics GP. And, over the past seven years as FMP has grown, the team at Express Information Systems has continued to support Food Management Partners’ daily to ensure that all their accounting challenges have been met. FMP now uses several software programs with service through Express Information Systems, including PaperSave for document imaging, Greenshades for tax filing, and Comprehensive Leave Manager, which allows FMP to handle requirements needed with personal time off for restaurant employees in the different states in which Food Management Partners operates.
