FP2 Solution

Sylvan Lake use FP2 extensively in their day-to-day operations, and have had the software since 2008. They provide Inspection reports using the FP2 Inspection module, track hydrant locations and information, manage their inventory servicing, and most importantly, use the FP2 Compensation module to generate timesheets for personnel pay calculation.

Since they don’t have lots of people using FP2, they have a limited number of user licences, and their additional plugins, like the Invoicing module, allow them the generate invoices for their Ministry of Transportation billing directly from FP2, without filling out separate forms.
