The Challenges

Finance, budgets and reporting

Take the challenge out of large school and multi-academy trust reporting. Unified ledger technology empowers users to generate accurate, up-to-date reports. View data across all locations or drill down into specific schools for incisive reports. Streamline financial management and reporting and plan your spending with financial confidence.

Communications and admin

Engage with the parent community by sending news and information directly to their phones. Pull contact information from your school’s MIS and manage attendance, safeguarding and parents’ evening appointments from a single platform. Save your school the time and money spent printing, sealing and sending home endless paper letters.

School payments and cashless catering

Schools need robust software solutions to process the thousands of pounds they collect every year.
By integrating their payments and cashless catering with parental engagement systems, schools can reap the rewards of cashless payments. Eliminate the need to manage cash in your school and make it easy to collect parent arrears.

Administration, people and asset maintenance

Reduce staff turnover by adopting a proactive approach to human resource management. Analyse and identify skill gaps, patterns of absence and staff shortages and take action before you lose vital employees.
Manage your school facilities and resources with ease over one location or a hundred, and ensure compliance with statutory requirements.
