Are you a Local Authority looking to switch your schools’ MIS and Finance systems? We’re excited to announce that Arbor Finance (formerly RM Finance) is now part of the Arbor family. Which means if you’re an LA with schools stuck in a legacy Finance and MIS contract, you can move to the cloud and get the benefits of Arbor’s top-rated products – at last.
Already used and loved by over 1,250 Local Authority maintained schools, Arbor Finance is a cash book accounting system that makes day-to-day school accounting simple, paperless and affordable. We acquired RM Finance and brought it into the Arbor brand to expand our offering to LAs.
Both Arbor MIS and Finance are cloud-based, meaning you can work completely flexibly, from home or anywhere, with no server bulk, costs, or complications. Plus, work with just one team for both MIS and Finance.
Arbor MIS is chosen by more schools that switch than any other UK MIS, and we’re proud to be the UK’s most popular cloud-MIS. We’ve designed Arbor with features tailored to office staff, teachers and SLT – so you can work together in one, shared system.
With features just right for your schools, including built-in statutory reporting, online invoicing and electronic approvals, your schools will love our simple and easy-to-use interface. Arbor Finance makes accounting straightforward and paperless, with no accounting background needed.
We’ll make sure you’re accredited to support your schools on Arbor MIS and Arbor Finance. Plus, we’ll work with you to define the right set of finance reports for your schools, tailored to your authority’s needs.
We’ve migrated more schools (over 4,500!) from legacy, server-based systems to the cloud than any other MIS provider. Together with your MIS team and support partner, we’ll map out a phased onboarding of Arbor MIS and Arbor Finance across your Local Authority – with you in the driver’s seat.
We already work with over 20 Local Authorities and over 50 local support teams to ensure schools have the tools they need to make day-to-day accounting simple and straightforward, and an MIS that will measurably improve the way you work.
If you’re an LA team or or a Partner that works closely with LA schools reviewing your schools’ MIS and Finance options, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
