The Benefits of iFinance for Schools

The iFinance accounting, consolidation and business intelligence features offer the bursary the capability to generate predefined and custom reports profiled by user. The fully-interactive reporting allows the user to drill down to transaction level and produce customised analysis, which can then be exported to Word, PDF or Excel. The Auto-Bank Reconciliation allows users to speed up the allocation process, uploading your bank files and posting transactions in a time efficient manner.

The iFinance fee billing feature allows account departments to generate bills and add charges in several different ways for specific applicants, current students and alumni. The feature enables the bursary to amend invoices and synchronise this data with a sales and nominal ledger. The flexible deferred income functionality removes the need for monthly journals to be calculated and posted. Featuring a comprehensive suite of interactive reports for pre and post invoice, historic invoices and ad-hoc reports.

With our workflow approval, you’re able to automatically send paperless POs and purchase invoices for approval before they are posted to the accounting system, including options to add customisable layers of approval. Save time by creating an auto approval process for reviewing or approving invoices by authorised personnel. Keep your data secure and track each request with real-time view of the status of approval.

All your company and group assets can now be managed and stored via this single database, no need for switching between multiple systems. Quickly approve fixed asset POs or invoices through our approval workflow and App. Upload accompanying documents with our document management functionality, schedule dates for maintenance or renewal and link assets to leases or loans. Automated depreciation journals and fixed asset schedules. CapEx forecasting will offer you greater assistance in your financial planning.

Employees can record expenses and outlay against internal or external projects and managers to approve. Enjoy our easy-to-use Expenses Capture App to add photos of expense items or receipts, submit expenses to line managers, start-stop mileage claims using Google Maps and easily route expenses for client recharge and tag as paid or to be reimbursed – all with ease on your smartphone. Lock fixed expense items to reduce the risk of error and avoid multiple submissions for the same expense claim. Integration with the finance ledger ensure expense claims are automatically paid once approved.
