Aletheia Academies Trust Chooses Industry-Leading Sage Intacct for Education

Thursday, February 1, 2024

ION, a leading provider of innovative cloud-based financial solutions, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Aletheia Academies Trust, a dynamic Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) consisting of 12 schools with ambitious plans for growth in the coming years.

Aletheia Academies Trust had been utilizing SIMS finance, but the limitations of their previous financial system became evident as the trust expanded. The reporting function in SIMS finance fell short of meeting Aletheia's needs, lacking the necessary detail and consistency in numbers. Additionally, the trust found a lack of support services and a disjointed purchase-to-pay workflow within the system.

One of the major pain points for Aletheia was the inadequate reporting function, forcing the finance team to use extensive manual calculations in Excel. This proved to be time-consuming but also introduced the risk of errors, leading to reduced efficiency.

With the aim of becoming a more centralised trust, Aletheia Academies Trust sought a finance solution tailored to the unique requirements of a growing MAT. After careful consideration, they chose Sage Intacct for Education, a best-in-class financial system known for its adaptability and comprehensive features designed specifically for educational institutions.

Sage Intacct for Education addresses the challenges faced by MATs, and offers robust reporting capabilities, streamlined purchase-to-pay workflows. By partnering with ION who were recently named Sage Intacct Partner of the Year UKI, Aletheia will also have access to a range of support services and training workshops from certified Sage specialists. This strategic move aligns with Aletheia's vision of creating a more efficient, centralised financial system that can scale alongside the trust's growth.

"We are excited to collaborate with Aletheia Academies Trust in implementing Sage Intacct for Education," said Rob Mathieson, CEO of ION. "The unique needs of MATs demand a sophisticated financial solution, and we are confident that Sage Intacct will empower Aletheia to achieve their goals while ensuring accuracy, transparency, and efficiency in their financial processes."

As Aletheia Academies Trust embarks on this partnership with ION, both organizations are committed to driving positive change and fostering a financial environment that supports the trust's growth aspirations. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in Aletheia's journey towards financial excellence and centralised management.
