I have found FPS Web very easy to use, and both the headteacher and governors have commented favourably on the reports that the system generates. It is an incredible aid to my role as business manager.
Tina Hooker, School Business Manager, The Costello School
’The system allows the "what if scenarios" to be calculated quickly and accurately and enables informed discussions to take place at the click of a button. I cannot fault the system, and with central updates with EFA changes on reports and formats the technical hassle is removed, I am really impressed.’
