Exciting New Capita Products

SIMS Finance

SIMS Finance provides a consolidated picture of finances across an academy or multi-academy trust.

It provides graphical dashboards with powerful reporting tools that enable you to drill down from an overall budget view to individual transactions helping identify opportunities for cost saving and the ability to compare spending across the academies within the trust.

It is designed to meet the needs of the users by removing complexity and improving user experience.

Data will not be migrated across from FMS 6 but new Companies will be setup with a new set of accounts in SIMS Finance – FMS 6 will still be available for schools to access their data at no cost.

SIMS Finance is a web based product hosted in Azure and can be accessed from anywhere. There isn’t an equipment register but there is a fixed asset register and integration with SIMS Personnel for salary projections has also been included this means that salary projection will be more accurate.

We have been given a peek at this amazing new product and we cannot wait for our academies to get onboard!

You will need to be setup for September 2018 if you are interested. The next opportunity for academies to come on board will only be in September 2019. Don’t Miss Out!

SIMS 8 (Primary)

SIMS 8 (Primary) – Capita called a halt to accepting new schools on to the Pilot when they realised there was an issue with the migration of data and then they were experiencing problems with their Reporting platform and Resource Sharing. They are hoping to ramp up the pilot in the Autumn term so we will keep you updated as things progress. 

The SIMS Conference 2018 is a great opportunity to find out more about these new products.
