iSAMS and AccountsIQ

A fully integrated Cloud Accounting and School MIS System

accountsIQ and iSAMS provide a unique cloud accounting solution ideal for schools and colleges. Based on the SaaS model (Software as a Service), the integrated fee billing and accounts systems help to eliminate unnecessary duplication of work and costly mistakes by offering a seamless two-way synchronisation of data. Whilst iSAMS handles the complicated billing structures and generates the invoices, accountsIQ manages the accounts and reports.

The systems are dynamically linked so that changes in iSAMS will automatically update accountsIQ and vice versa.

Why accountsIQ?

Unique architecture: of by being built on an SQL platform with every entity on the system having its own SQL database. This is truly unique to the Cloud accounting market and enables us to customise the database enormously to a user’s requirements. It also enables enhanced reporting capabilities, user profiling and custom database fields for Customers and Suppliers.

Consolidation software: that can handle any type of group structure (groups within groups, partial ownership and multi-currency) that produces a true set of accounting consolidated results (as opposed to amalgamated results) with full inter-company posting facilities. There is also a great deal of reporting capability at the parent company level with drilldown into the subsidiaries.

Enhanced Business Analytics: which is possible due to our unique SQL database architecture means that we can query the database in any manner you wish and produce reports on any data captured. We can also produce custom reports (there are 250 pre-written reports in the system) and dashboards for clients. There is also an ability to set up KPI’s and report on Statistics (at a Company or Group level).

Workflow Approval with Budget Holders: There is a detailed and comprehensive workflow approval process for PO’s, PI’s and Payments. Budget Holders can be assigned and required to approve spending taking into account previous expenditure, and orders in progress against budget.  There are also comprehensive Commitment Reports for each Budget Holder.

Some of our Clients:

“When we set out on our journey to implement a new accounting system for the Kingsworth Group of Schools, ease of use, integration with our current MIS, friendly relations and great customer service were top of our pre-requisites.  With accountsIQ, we have all of that and more.  The team at accountsIQ have been outstanding; from our initial contact and discussions, right the way through to helping our finance department implement the system in the best way for us. AccountsIQ is a system that is adapted for our needs, rather than us adapting to its capabilities, indeed its capabilities and possibilities are huge.
I would highly recommend AccountsIQ, a great product, a great team and a fantastic personalised service. Just Excellent! ”
