St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Academy Trust Partners with ION to Implement Sage Intacct for Education

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

ION, a leading provider of innovative cloud-based financial solutions, is delighted to announce its new partnership with St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Academy Trust to deliver their new finance system, Sage Intacct for Education.  

St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Academy Trust is comprised of 15 primary and secondary schools across Hull, Scarborough, Bridlington, and Pocklington. With the needs of their growing Trust expanding, St Cuthbert’s realised they had outgrown their previous system, Sage 200. Specific challenges faced by the trust’s finance team included poor visibility into reporting, limited financial dashboards, and an inefficient Purchase to Pay process that proved to be extremely time-consuming.  

As long-term Sage supporters, St Cuthbert’s approached ION with the desire to upgrade their current system to industry-specific Sage Intacct for Education. Sage Intacct for Education is ION’s best-in-class financial system purpose-built to address the specific needs of growing multi-academy trusts.  It is well-known within the industry for its comprehensive features designed specifically for educational institutions.

A true cloud-based solution, Sage Intacct for Education addresses the challenges faced by St Cuthbert’s by offering a robust and powerful range of accounting solutions. This includes an advanced reporting suite enhanced by real-time analytics that allow up-to-date reports to be compiled in just a few clicks. This will also allow the Trust to compare budgets to actuals quickly and easily. Sage Intacct for Education will also offer the Trust a customisable and streamlined Purchase to Pay workflow designed to boost productivity and efficiency, and save time for both requisitioners and the central finance team.  

Afte choosing to adopt Sage Intacct as their new finance system, St Cuthbert’s partnered with ION to configure and deliver the project. Experts in the education sector, ION was recently named Sage Intacct Partner of the Year. This strategic partnership will allow St Cuthbert’s to benefit from ION’s extensive knowledge and experience in delivering education-specific financial transformation projects alongside a modernised finance solution purpose-built to meet their individual needs.  

"We are thrilled to partner with St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Academy Trust for their transformation project with Sage Intacct for Education," said Rob Mathieson, CEO of ION.

We are confident that with Sage Intacct for Education and ION’s support, St Cuthbert’s will see significant benefits from a modernised and sophisticated finance system."
