See how customers use FMX's help desk software

Other IT asset management software was really noisy with a lot of different features that we don't typically use. FMX is really straightforward. I like how once you've decided what user you want to work with, you can go right into the device selection and search a device.

Easy to use software

Streamlines IT ticketing with simple workflows for district faculty and staff.

With FMX, it feels like the work order system and the scheduling software are really a single seamless piece of software. I love the calendar view as a global view of everything. I appreciate the fact that I can grab my iPhone or iPad and still enter a work order while I’m out at a venue like our softball field.

We liked that we could filter the data and see exactly what we wanted to find and when we wanted to see it. Our old system could not do that. It makes it so much easier to find a work order or what the team did. Capturing the information is a part of what makes FMX stand out.

Additionally, all users have access to webinar training, where they can learn how to submit and close work requests and how to configure personal settings.

At FMX, we typically response to support requests within 30 minutes, and we have a 98% customer satisfaction rating.

How much does FMX cost?

Pricing for FMX depends on the number of students enrolled or the total number of users. Other factors, like add-ons and additional features, can also affect the price.

Depending on each educational institution’s needs, implementation times vary but can take as little as two weeks.

Our team will be highly involved throughout the implementation process. We work with our new customers to import data, establish workflows, and configure permission settings.
