We might not be the best known provider of accounting systems but our Dimensions for Academies system has been referred to as 'The new gold standard finance system'.
The system is totally integrated, provides all of the facilities that an academy or MAT will need and has Access Dimensions at its core.
Dimensions is Access (UK)'s market leading finance system. Sold and supported by Hoge 100, it is a mainstream finance system in use by thousands of organisations ranging from multi-national companies to a small special school. It is expremely flexible, very easy to use and is relied on by 30,000 people every day.
mensions fo Academies is aAt home in cloud, hosted or local environments and is used by academies, MATs and free schools of all kinds.
Dimensions for Academies is a suite of software with Dimensions at its core that covers every aspect of Academy requirements.
Our Finance Portal provides purchase control, reporting and much more. It can be used as the only facility required by a school within a MAT; cutting down on the number of expensive users of the core finance ystem and relieving the schools of the burden of entering what any find to be complex 'accounting' transactions.
Our Fees and Charges system provides facilities for the management of School Trips, Lettings, Wrap Around and Merchandise Sales.
So whether it is generating invoices for wrap around or documenting the financial ins and outs of a long school term, we have a complete set of software and professional support team to help you along every step of the way.
Talking of support: it's our forté: whatever finance system you choose for your academy or MAT you will need help from time to time, particularly in the early months. When you do, you will need effective help quickly; not in an hour or two or next day or by email.
Because we are smaller and more agile our support is much better than that of our competitors. We believe our support to be second to none. Its foundation is a process developed over 25 years. For example, when you call us, the person who answers the phone answers your question.
We're here for the long term: we've already been around for nearly 30 years and Access is a substantial UK-based company, much larger in the provision of finace systems than the authors of our competitor systems. Furthermore, Access and Hoge 100 are commercially much more robust: neither of us is reliant on just one market sector. We are going to be around for a long time.
The author-supplier relationship between Access and Hoge 100 means that you get the best of worlds:
In essence, Dimensions for Academies is a finance and accounting system that is easy to use, is fully commercial and has all of the features and standard reporting facilities required by an academy at an affordable price.
Plus, it comes with outstanding support from the team at Hoge 100 !
Here's what the Finance DIrector of one of the country's leading academies has to say about us:
"We have used Hoge 100’s finance system across the trust since 2011. Our finance staff have found it very user friendly and it is extremely flexible. Hoge’s support is always available and everyone is helpful, friendly and accommodating. The system has undoubtedly contributed to the successful financial management of OAT academies."
