Headquartered in Hampton Court in England, the group has 12 Independent Schools across the UK as well as schools in Switzerland and Qatar, which means the finance team needs to account for income and payments in multiple currencies as well as produce consolidated group accounts.
As well as a suite of 250 pre-built reports, iFinance can be customised to create tailored reports. Bellevue created their own management reports in MS Excel which can be automatically updated from the iFinance database via an “add-in” link.
Unlike other applications which encourage the exclusive use of in-built Business Intelligence tools, iFinance also gives users the option to plug in existing reports modelled in Excel. This allows businesses like Bellevue to focus on becoming familiar with the software without the worry of recreating reporting packs in the early stages.
