Working with Local Authorities
We work with Local Authorities to help implement 'best practice' income administration processes in schools. Using a centralised system massively improves the efficiency and provides consistency across your schools.
Improve efficiencies - our system creates a framework that delivers consistent income procedures in schools throughout your region.
Easy to use - the system is fast to implement and easy for your schools to learn; it comes in a modular suite of products allowing you to decide on the scale of implementation.
Visibility - get a clear picture of all of your schools' finances.
Full audit trail - it creates a permanent record every time money is received in school or online using our SCOPAY app. The system generates a complete audit trail from the time money is received in school to the point where it's paid into the bank.
Flexible - our modular suite of products allows you to decide on the scale of implementation.
Centralised - we can generate one invoice for the authority, but each school can have the modules that suit them.
Need help? - reach our friendly Customer Support team instantly, when you need us.
Training - get the most out of our training, we offer tailored or refresher training for all of your schools.
If you are working with schools in an advisory capacity, we are happy to come and present at a School Business meeting and allow schools to make up their own mind about our system. We are equally happy to discuss implementation to all schools across an Authority.
Talk to us about full integration with your existing systems.
Centralised access and reporting
There are several requirements we can offer central finance teams.
- Access - staff can have centralised access to individual sites, so both the internal school staff and central teams can monitor and work if needed.
- Reporting - in addition to this, there is a reporting function which enables central finance teams to run reports across the local authority.
- Security - approved by Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
- Streamlined - We can also link with existing gateway systems that Local Authorities already use.
We can also collect data from multiple schools for transfer into LA finance systems (FMS, RM Finance, SAP etc).
