SPSS Dimensions survey system

Unfortunately I must work with the above piece of shit software for a while. I don't understand how the hell SPSS justify the cost.
The documentation is a mess, web interface works with IE only (there is not technical reason for this, gmail and other "web 2.0" interfaces are much more complicated than DimensionsNET), the web admin interface kicks me out from time to time without any reason and when I try to login again, it just gives an internal error (wait 4-5min and it works again).
Could be that it's just some simple configuration problem but unfortunately I'm not the administrator (and the server is located some 500km away so I can't even go and kick it myself...)

Well, back to building the survey...
