The FMS Roadshows are now a regular event (taking place annually for the past three years), but for those who haven’t been before you may be wondering what it’s all about and why you should attend.
Well …  Every year The ICT Service brings to you the FMS Roadshow to provide you with details of new developments within FMS and new ways of tackling things.
Unlike the ‘Finance Forums’ run by Education Finance, we specialise in just FMS and related products and we can show you how FMS can support the financial processes required of both maintained schools and academies.
Here’s a list of some of the topics covered:
  • Reports within FMS and how to interpret them.
  • New developments / services - including the use of both credit and debit cards and the easiest way to deal with them quickly and efficiently using new software available in FMS.
  • A walk through the fast approaching year end and system tidy!
  • Pupil Premium and a way of recording and proving.
  • Barclays 3 Day Payments rollout – the process.
  • HCSS  Presentation of the FRS  Reporting Suite and the Budgeting Tool
  • Hints and tips, forthcoming developments, good practice and efficiencies.
We are very happy to be welcoming back guest speakers from HCSS Education, a leading education finance specialist and SIMS partnership company.  Back by popular demand are:
  • Dan Young -  Head of Business Development   HCSS
  • Paul Prophet - Key Account Manager
Many Cambridgeshire academies use their products, as do 32 other authorities and over 4000 LA schools and 2000 academies.  Find out more about them here.
