Migrating to a new MIS is possibly the largest challenge a bursar or school IT Director will face. WCBS project managers worked with extraordinary attention to detail when Queen’s moved from a competitor product to passFINANCE and 3sysACADEMIC.

Paul Foster, IT Director
The Queens School, Chester

We started to use passFINANCE Payroll in April and it has gone very smoothly. The consultants were extremely helpful, I have phoned the helpdesk several times and they have been excellent, Overall – we are absolutely delighted by it!

Fiona Lister, Accountant
Lord Wandsworth College

I’d like to pass on my thanks for an extremely helpful, professional and responsive service we received from Mark House and the data services team. The documentation and knowledgeable advice added to the all-round excellence.

“Now 100% of our teaching staff, and nearly all of our administrators are inputting or accessing data and information into the MIS.”
“It’s helped us to achieve a much better understanding of each student’s learning progress. Now, through the WCBS Markbook programme, we have access to advanced calculations.”

I have always received friendly and knowledgeable advice whenever I have a query. The courses WCBS run are really useful, especially when done at headquarters and you can chat to other users.

Dawn Williams, Accounts Clerk
St Mary’s School, Shaftesbury

passFINANCE continues to run well for us and is the easiest of the systems that I manage on a daily basis as it requires so little intervention and the move to RTI went very smoothly. We are very satisfied and with the support that WCBS give us.

Andrew Johnson, Database Administrator
Clayesmore School

Moving to passFINANCE has been the best transition ever. The best bit: review date and admissions checks as well as being able to sort your front screen  according to the place status.
