The measures and solutions available from WCBS to ensure maximum efficiency throughout lockdown.
As teachers and other school staff are forced to work remotely, we have seen the adaptability and persistence from the Independent school community once more. This truly demonstrates the dedication that our leading Independent schools have for their pupils, and the commitment to the delivery of their outstanding education.
Be assured that the WCBS Support team is continuing to work as usual. There are no reduced hours and the full team is on hand to answer your calls.
Unlimited Pass User Licences
For as long a Covid-19 is disrupting regular working, you can receive as many additional temporary Pass user licences as you need. There is a small admin charge, which covers the time needed for our Tech Team to add on the additional licences.
Alternatively, if you already know you will permanently need more Pass licences, we are offering these with a 50% discount, for a limited time.
Cloud hosted solutions for on-premise customers
WCBS remains committed to helping schools through this time, and we recognise the necessity of a smooth transition from working in office, to working from home. Our Pass hosting solution has enabled on-premise customers to access passFINANCE and 3sysACADEMIC with their own data from any browser, so that users who have adjusted their workspaces can do so with as little disruption as possible.
Pass Hosting Licences
Due to the popular uptake of the Pass hosting solution, combined with the new lockdown measures, we are offering schools free access for two users to our Pass hosting solution, when a minimum of six users are purchased. This will allow your school’s finance team to continue working efficiently from home, throughout this lockdown.
Cloud Native Products: Cloud Finance and HUBmis
The HMRC recognised Cloud Finance solution gives Independent Schools’ financial teams a remote working facility with reduced costs and automated updates. With Cloud Finance & WCBS’ exclusively developed Billing solution supporting all the special requirements of Independent schools, our schools will have a more efficient, safe and secure finance department.
As a cloud native product, Cloud Finance can be accessed anywhere, at any time.
Launched in Autumn 2020, HUBmis is the next generation, cloud native, management information system for schools. Developed specifically for Independent and International Schools, the new HUBmis has been built to live in the cloud, providing a global reach.
Designed for 99.95% uptime, HUBmis eliminates the risk of frequent disruption, with point in time back ups and instant updates. A gold standard in security gives peace of mind, especially for staff working from home.
With cloud native products, losing your internet doesn’t mean losing work. With instant backups, you don’t need to worry so much about the reliability of your home’s internet connection.
