Access Dimensions

Many academy finance systems lack professional accountancy software. Processes are disjointed and time-consuming. It's a common complaint.

Dimensions for Academies has Access Dimensions at the core. Driven by powerful ledgers from a market-leading system, accountants welcome the strength it delivers.

Dimensions is used by thousands of businesses and organisations UK-wide.

Finance Portal

Finance Portal

Browser-based and developed by Hoge 100, Finance Portal empowers your budget holders whilst retaining control of your core system.

With permission-based access, you'll automate the creation, submission and approval of purchase requests, whilst giving budget holders real-time information at their fingertips.

Have clarity from multi-level reporting in an instant: by cost centre, by nominal code, by academy. You choose. All quickly exported to Excel or by PDF.

Operations Portal

Managing wraparound care, lettings and school trips can be cumbersome. Too many 'systems' and time-wasting duplication.

We've developed an integrated system that takes care of self-generated income. With just one click, the fee moves straight through to the core accounting system.

And integration with the Parent Portal means that payments are delivered swiftly, straight into into your bank account.

"The support from Hoge 100 is just incomparable. I mean, it was one of their selling points. But people say they give great support, and then in reality, they don't. But Hoge do. I think they are first-class; I really do."
