Kingsbridge Educational Trust moves to centralised system for finance management
Kingsbridge Educational Trust (KET) chose Civica Financials to support the centralisation and management of the MAT’s finances.
Formed in September 2016, KET is a multi-academy trust of like-minded autonomous schools dedicated to high standards and collaborative working.
KET chose Civica Financials for its reputation, education-specific expertise, functionality, price and the confidence that the software will help them drive long-term financial stability and help meet their MAT goals.
Chief Financial Officer,
Kingsbridge Education Trust
Civica Financials has all the functionality that we were looking for with the reporting and analysis elements being key for meeting our goals as a trust. The Business Analytics tools will provide good value for money and seemed more in line with modest budgets that schools have to work with. Some commercial competitors were more than treble the price and we did not feel confident they fully understood the education sector the way Civica does.
Civica is a large, well-established company with a great track record of delivering finance systems to schools and Trusts. This gave us confidence that any issues or support we may need going forward will be quickly resolved and actioned. Having products and expertise specifically for schools and trusts means Civica will be aware of any sector-related changes or developments that may impact our day-to-day roles.
