At the Core - Access Dimensions
Market-leading Commercial Accounting System
Dimensions is Access (UK)'s market leading accounting system that Hoge 100 has sold and supported for over 20 years.
The system is in use by thousands of organisations; a much larger customer base than the supposed 'mainstream' systems used by many academies. Dimensions for Academies really is a mainstream finance system.
Access is a substantial UK-based company with a turnover in excess of £100m.
We, at Hoge 100 sell, implement and support the system. Our customer care and support is first class and we believe it to be second to none. Its foundation and ethos is a process developed over our 30 years of experience.
The author-supplier relationship between Access and Hoge 100 means that you get the best of worlds; a mainstream finance system from a substantial software development company with first class support from a very responsive friendly company.
In essence; this finance system is an easy to use, full commercial system with all of the features and standard reporting facilities required by an academy at an affordable price. Plus, it comes with outstanding support.
Powerful core ledgers & more
At the heart of your academy's accounting system, powerful ledgers provide instant access to essential information, fully supported by a wide range of tools designed to make your daily routines faster and more effective.
From asset management to document management and MAT consolidation; Dimensions for Academies has everything needed by today's School Business Manager.
Close gaps in your purchasing process
Negotiate prime terms, keep tight budgetary control and handle your budgets with ease: Dimensions for Academies gives you full control over the purchase life cycle.
With instant access to supplier information and full, flexible purchase analysis, you can interrogate supplier performance at the most detailed level.
The Finance Portal gives complete control over the purchasing process. It eliminates paper and gives everyone who needs to place purchase requests the ability to make requests over your internal Intranet system.
Budget holders can authorise requests and see their spend to date at a glance. They can even drill down to see scanned copies of invoices.
Reporting and consolidation
Dimensions for Academies has a sophisticated ledger structure that provides powerful analysis and business intelligence.
This also enables us to easily produce standard reports, for example ESFA and counterparty reports.
For MATs, if you choose to have a single database, real-time consolidations are available with drill down.
If your schools have more autonomy with separate databases and even with different ledger structures, consolidation is available with a few clicks of a mouse.
Timely, accurate analysis at-a-touch
From governors' packs to business intelligence, online analysis to flexible enquiries, Dimensions for Academies is the driver for timely, accurate analysis.
You can track your bank balances, top suppliers or KPIs of your choice: all reports provide drill-down to source transactions so that you can quickly get to the heart of the issue.
