Streamline your MAT's financial operations
SIMS Finance offers clear, graphical dashboards that show a consolidated financial view across your academies. Powerful reporting tools enable you to drill down into transactions to easily see where and how much is being spent, helping to highlight opportunities to benefit from economies of scale. You can also ensure you're getting the best value from suppliers while minimising waste, retain a consolidated list of suppliers with links to catalogues, determine certification and tolerance levels that support your financial regulations, make consolidated BACS payments via a central bank account and provide a single sign on for all staff.
A consolidated view of your group's data
SIMS SchoolView is ideal for academy groups looking for an intuitive solution to managing data more efficiently across their SIMS schools. Easy-to-use dashboards provide you with valuable insight into how your schools are performing by displaying an easy to interpret breakdown of key performance measures. It also streamlines the collection of data automatically from SIMS schools within your academy groups, helping you to make more informed decisions. SIMS SchoolView is simple and quick to set up, and saves hours of time and money on data collection and processing by reducing the need to re-input data held elsewhere.

Our specialist team can help make the conversion of your schools to academy status a smooth process. We provide support to help academies demonstrate continuous school improvement and ensure they’re making the most of being an academy. We have also helped academies and groups set up to meet their new financial management and reporting obligations.
