A growing suite of applications and resources
Users will see that the SBS Online Welcome Screen now features SBS Budgets, SBS Sync and additional resources, with SBS ICFP coming soon. Furthermore, this paves the way for future SBS applications and resources to benefit school business management, including:
- Improved reporting visuals and analysis for finance and pupil/staff
- Significant visibility and timesaving for data management and updates
- Communication and data transfer link between leading education software packages, including SBS Budgets
- Instant visibility of your onsite or offsite SBS support, inc. visits and cases
- SBS Community – share best practice and lead the conversation
Our 2020 vision: SBS Online to be developed for all SBS customers!
For example, for schools that receive onsite visits from an SBS consultant and require visibility of days available, in 2020 you will be able to log into SBS Online to view this, in addition to discussing with your account manager. If you call our Service Desks for troubleshooting and advice, and would like visibility of your cases, SBS Online will be able to provide an overview and peace of mind for your school team, alongside phone/email liaison on a resolution.
If you are a School Business Services customer with a suggestion for SBS Online we’d like to hear from you!
