Agora.. anyone know anything
I got my annual maintennance pre-invoice suprise today which came with a couple of booklets... one mentioned Agora and Earnie but I can't find anything about them on the Sims site.. anyone heard/got any info about these.
Anotehr interested thing in the booklet is Multiple timetables for schools that go all the way through from Nursery to Sixth form like ours (about time)

I'm pretty sure Agora is a new payment system.
Multiple timetables has long been required. Does it say for when, and are they charging extra for these things since it came with your invoice...?

Sorry, I meant more info about these 2 products, their is some blurb in the entitlement guide about them both. Agora sounds interesting but wondered if its a addon to their gateway and FMS or its a standalone.. the Earnie thing talks about payrolls and Bacs which looks interesting too.
The bit about multiple Timetables isn't on my bill, just mentions it in the booklet also... its the independent schools booklet so might be different for state schools.

Agora is the new online payment system, linking to Dinner Money etc. It's not live yet, some authorities are testing, or will be soon.
It was announced at the last Software Update Seminar.
Earnie is a new one on me. We should hear at Alton Towers next week though.

Earnie has been around for ever. It is a payroll management system.

EARNIE is old and i don't know anyone that likes it.
I'm an independent so look forward to the books, but the postal system here might make it a long wait.
I'm sure i've already had my pre-invoice doc though, don't remember anything with it.

Agora is the new online payment interface. Looked quite slick when I saw it at Independent conference in March. Although Capita have no marketing material on it, and have recently pushed it back for release into next year (or so I have been told from various people in Capita).
Basic pricing on Agora wasnt to bad when compared with parentpay, but have to wait and see if it changes along with release date.

Sims Agora sounds very interesting. Its about time they brought out something like that.

Mmm, I wish they did a specific API for it and let third parties integrate rather then locking it down so you're force us only Capita services. I guess Capita wants direct access to the parents money - guess it's a community effort. Maybe I'm just being a bit too cynical
