Why education providers use Access software

“Thanks to our Access solution, we've been able to reduce the level of outstanding debt at the end of each academic year - and that's despite the introduction of variable fees.”

Loretta Hartwell, Southampton Solent University
  • Accurate analytics for senior managers

    We provide a full suite of online reports to provide staff with accurate information on-demand. Rolling absence by department, appraisals due, complete and actuals vs budget are just some examples of the reports you could provide through intuitive dashboards.

  • Support complex working patterns

    Different contract types? Varying working patterns and holiday entitlements? The functionality within our HR solutions means complex administration is completed quickly and easily. Automated key processes across the organisation mean improved operational efficiency and a significant reduction in duplication of effort.

  • Complete OFSTED reporting

    Ensuring that your organisation remains compliant is a time-consuming but essential task. CRB & Single Central Record checks are recorded as standard in the core system, and the Workforce Census report can be generated quickly and easily. Reporting can be automated and set up to communicate directly with professional bodies such as OFSTED and the Department of Education.

  • Reduce duplication & errors

    Access education solutions provide a single source of data capture, from student records through to integration with relevant sources such as the Student Loan Company (SLC) and EPOS. We take data out of silos and create one central platform, reducing re-keying and increasing data accuracy.

  • Centralised student debt management

    Developed specifically for the needs of higher/further education, our solutions offer: the ability to tailor debt collection plans per student; flexible debt collection, including cash, debit and credit card; online hub enabling students to pay fees via the internet and integration to online payment providers such as WPM Education.

  • Intuitive web-based purchasing

    When it comes to purchasing, our solutions combine tight control with flexibility and ease of use. One online portal allows staff whether on or off campus to instigate the purchasing process, raising requests using preconfigured, familiar web-based forms. In-built workflow ensures submissions are authorised at right level/s, minimising spending errors and providing full traceability.
