Barclays 3 Day Payments

For Primary and Secondary Schools

You can now book to attend the Barclays 3 Day Payments Workshops to be held at The ICT Service Training Centre in St Ives.
  • Tues 17 May 2016, 9.30am - 12.00pm
  • Weds 18 May 2016, 1.30 - 4.00pm
  • Thurs 23 June 2016, 9.30am - 12.00pm
  • Thurs 30 June 2016, 1.30pm - 4.00pm
Now that Year End is out of the way, the roll-out of Barclays 3 Day Payments is starting again.
These workshops are designed for schools that want to make the move away from cheque payments. Their purpose is to demonstrate the benefits and encourage school finance staff to streamline and improve their current financial practices whilst complying with Cambridgeshire County Council Financial Regulations and Audit.
During the workshop course delegates will be setting up their own FMS modules to activate and configure the BACS setup for either or Lloyds Link. 
If you are interested in changing to electronic bank payments then you must in the first instance contact Education Finance. They manage the relevant access and permissions to get your school set up for 3 day payments with Barclays. They will arrange for you to be provided with a card, pin code and access rights.
There is a pre-requisite form to complete before course bookings are confirmed; these must be completed to safeguard all parties.
It is important that you have read the Preparing Your Systems for 3 Day Payments short guide and that you have started to set up some of your regularly used suppliers, such as ESPO.
As part of the course you will be able to make your first BACS file upload onto the bank website.  Many users of FMS are put off by the apparent complexity.  In this workshop you will be enlightened.
During the session you will be supplied with a reconditioned and serviced Smartcard Reader-enabled keyboard to take away and use (meaning you can plug your Barclaycard directly into the keyboard whilst in Central Hosting).
