Hoge 100

The Gold Standard Finance System
for Multi-academy Trusts

We're ready for
Making Tax Digital

Sophisticated enough to cater for the most complex academy or MAT. User-friendly enough for everyone and used by two of the largest MATs and several Diocesan MATs.

Dimensions for Academies is more than simply an accounting system; it manages all of your financial activities, eliminates re-keying and paper and even has an integrated on-line payment system for all your invoices. The system has everything you need, from core accounting to management and invoicing of wraparound and lettings.

"One thing that is a great benefit is that it’s available anywhere, I can do it (work) at home; this has massive advantages."

Joy Tomkinson
Chief Financial Officer
Haberdashers’ Adams Federation Trust

At the core: A market-leading finance system, trusted by thousands

At the core of Dimensions for Academies is Access Dimensions, a market-leading commercial accounting system used by thousands of organisations.

"It was choice between Hoge and a competitor, the market leader. We chose Hoge on price and functionality. Dimensions does everything the competitor’s system would do but does some features better. The price is much better too."

And when you call us, more often than not, the person who answers the phone is also able your question.

"The support and training we’ve received has helped us become more efficient at carrying out financial functions. We’re still on that journey but the Dimensions system has helped. And it has helped us to maintain that culture of financial responsibility across the school."
