After much discussion, designing, testing and long nights, the SBS Online team is happy to present the new and improved budget management software.

Thankyou to our schools for their kind words whilst using the updated software so far. The redesign greatly improves the user experience, makes financial planning easier and saves time when navigating throughout the software. Much of the menu and sub-menu items will be familiar and will remain intuitive and easy to use. For those who have opted out until the 31st May, please note there may be limited downtime on that evening.

Recap: SBS Online Redesign Blog Series

In the run up to the release date we began a redesign blog series to ensure that schools are familiar with the updated software before they use it. Below is a convenient list of installments with a summary of significant functions and features. Each topic provides a before/after screenshot and description to help users visualise the old and new planners side-by-side and the differences in function.
