General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
May 25th is fast approaching, this means we all need to have prepared for the change in regulations. We have been busy ensuring our internal company policies are updated and rolled out, the products and services we offer schools have been reviewed and any changes to security and procedures are implemented by the enforcement date. Find out more in our new GDPR blog.
Product Updates and Announcements
Version 5.5 was released earlier this month, enhancements to 3sysACADEMIC and schoolADMIN included push notifications for WeChat/Weixin in China, pastoral notification functionality, level 5 standalone units for SQA exams and an add related button in the quick admissions screen.
Updates to passFINANCE comprised Swiss ISO 20022 conformity for billing and purchase modules for relevant schools, RTI submission changes in line with government legislation, new pay variance report, changes to P60 laser copy form, serious ill health lump sum additions and much more.
We are very excited about the progress we are making with our new MIS ‘HUB’. The development team have been working hard to bring our current HUB customers new features, as well as looking to the future to provide an option for our present 3sysACADEMIC customers to transition across. We will be posting a blog soon to highlight the new features and what to look forward to in coming releases.
We have been talking recently about an interactive reporting and dashboard solution, and we are pleased to say this exciting product will soon be launched, thanks to our new partner Panintelligence. Gain a multi-dimensional view of your school, anywhere, any time, and on any device. Produce reports and make decisions quickly, with instant access to live, accurate data. Keep an eye out for more information coming soon.
HMRC - Thumbs up!
As each year goes by, the trust in passFINANCE Payroll is strengthened, and yet again this year the submission for recognition by HMRC received no queries. So, it’s been tested, recognised and now on their website ready for 2018 – 2019 tax year.
