    Moving away from SIMS?

    We're Academising, and as part of that process we are replacing SIMS FMS. That's non-negotiable: we're a Special School and we have quite complex funding, which since the NFF has come in is prone to huge fluctuation. FMS is fundamentally running on a cash basis and we need accruals accounting so that we can offset the sudden spikes in cashflow and see the real changes in income more clearly.

    So, the question is - whether to throw the baby out with the bathwater? We make fairly limited use of other SIMS modules at present: the performance module, for instance, is useless to Specials. But some of them are useful and that functionality needs to be retained, or replaced. Do we keep the bits of SIMS we are using, or do we replace them when we replace the accounting module?

    What did other schools who chucked out SIMS bring in, and what came along with it?

    Not an answer but it might be worth you going to BETT. Will give you the opportunity to speak to lots of different companies. Edugeek will also have a stand there.
