The Accounting System for Academies
Ideal for academies
Dimensions for Academies is a market leading accounting and finance system developed by Access (UK) and sold and supported by Hoge 100.
The system is in use by over 5,000 organisations; a much larger customer base than the 'mainstream' systems used by many academies. Dimensions for Academies really is a mainstream finance system.
Access (UK), the author of the system, is a substantial UK-based company; a much larger company than the authors of some competitor systems.
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 25 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 smaller, very responsive 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 purhase 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.
In the cloud or local
The system is developed for the very latest computing environments: it is at home in 'The Cloud', on a Hosted server or installed in a local environment.
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 at the click of the mouse, for example EFA reports.
For MATs, instant consolidations can be produced with a single database or you can have separate databases with different ledger structures for each school if greater autonomy is required.
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.
