Chipping Camden School

Chipping Campden - Case Study

GCC helps Chipping Campden School meet their business asset register requirements by utilising Sicon Fixed Assets for Sage 200

Chipping Campden School is an outstanding school (OFSTED 2017) with a long and distinguished history dating back to 1440, and a reputation to match. However, it is also a forward-looking school, always striving to provide the best opportunities for students to achieve their potential in a time of rapid change. Chipping Campden School is a Co Ed Academy and includes a 6th form and 1130 pupils.

Since obtaining Academy status there was a requirement for an assets register, which wasn’t previously needed when they were a foundation school.

Business Manager, Steve Donnachie, wanted an integrated solution rather than a manual system, so turned to GCC to see how this requirement could be achieved.

  • Challenge

    >  Chipping Camden School obtained Academy status which required an assets register. This was not currently in place.

    >  The Business Manager wanted an integrated solution rather than a manual system.

  • Solution

    >  Sicon Fixed Assets was recommended by GCC as the solution

    Sicon Fixed Assets is a comprehensive fixed asset and financial management platform which can be fully integrated into Sage 200.

  • Result

    >  The Business Manager can now access management information with a simple interface linking directly into Sage.

    >  Sicon Fixed Assets provides an integrated module within Sage, which provides simple and quick postings of depreciation.

    >  Chipping Campden School now has the ability to store all relevant documentation and information within the module.

    >  Depreciation Forecasts can be generated simply and quickly.

    >  Links to purchase ledger.

    >  Reports can be produced to show all maintenance costs against each asset.
