Resource 32000 Case Study-Walsall Academy

Following the announcement last year of the strategic partnership with Pearson Phoenix, Mondas was pleased to confirm Walsall Academy as the first school to install Resource 32000 Accounting and Management solution as a result of the relationship.

Opened in September 2003, Walsall Academy is one of a number of City Academies to be established in England, and now has approximately 670 students.

Walsall Academy will benefit from the integration of core financial modules including Nominal, Sales and Purchase Ledger, Cash Book and Purchase Order Processing, which includes features of specific importance to Schools such as comprehensive budget controls, commitment accounting and procurement.

“We were delighted that the implementation was completed so quickly.  We were up and running within 4 days, and a big plus from our point of view was the ease of data migration from our old system?, said Adrian Bowater, the Director of Finance at Walsall Academy.

Bernard Snowe the Director of the Resource Business Unit commented:
“This is a stepping stone in our move with Pearson Phoenix towards the complete ‘e¹ & e¹ Finance’ MIS strategy, which will provide schools with access to a browser based solution that will include all the functionality they would expect from a leading education finance system.?
