Spring update ii. SBS Budgets now boasts True Integration with ESS SIMS

Continuing our objective to make lives easier for schools through True Integration, you will now be able to pull through your staff and contract information from ESS SIMS directly into SBS Budgets without a .CSV file. This streamlines your processes, improves accuracy and removes the duplication of data entry into different systems.

Note - Arbor integration is available for Arbor users.

On our roadmap for future MIS integrations are Bromcom, CMIS, Engage, Furlong, Horizons, iSams, iTrent, PA, Progresso, RM Integris, ScholarPack, Schoolpod and WCBS. Please let us know if your school would be interested in these integrations.

We'd like some volunteer schools to show us how these integrations work for them on a day-to-day basis, and to also give us further insight for future software enhancements. Please contact us if you are interested.
