The cloud finance software MATs have been waiting for

iplicit's award-winning finance solution has been tailored for the MAT market, in order to provide a compelling alternative to the legacy systems that many MATs currently use.

Instead of having restricted interconnectivity with other systems, issues around remote access and punitive pricing to add every new school, iplicit provides an education-focused, true cloud option with a very simple and cost-effective way to add schools to your MAT as you grow. 


Improved financial transparency for MATs 

Automatically consolidate and improve transparency with an instant, 360-degree view across all of your schools and academies financial data.

iplicit's unlimited accounting dimensions, multiple cost centres and nominal codes make it quick and simple to monitor and compare spend across departments, schools and academies. 

Drill down to gain an in depth view of your budgets and forecasts, helping to identify cost savings and control spend.

Fast, accurate reporting

iplicit's powerful reporting functionality provides real-time information at a moments notice, helping your academy to make better, more informed, data driven decisions.

Our mission is to help finance teams move seamlessly to a modern cloud finance operation, and we have successfully supported many organisations such as nonprofits - who typically have extremely complex reporting requirements - through this transition for many years. 

iplicit is quite unusual in that it offers no limitation upon the number of elements that can be reported on within the system. Any attribute in any field, within an unlimited number of possible reports, is available to present as management information in real-time.

Don't Take Our Word For It

Here's What Our Customers Say


Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing​

Keith Stephenson​, Director of Finance and Operations

“With approximately 250 examiners working around the globe, it was important for us to have an expense management and timesheet system that could enable them to take more control of their affairs and submit the details accurately and efficiently. An underlying driver for change was also the need to move to a true-cloud solution.

"Being able to rehearse workflows and play with configurations, without risk, has been invaluable to us and also serves to make us much more confident with customisation.”



Health Poverty Action

Sandra Tcheumeni Boschet, Head of Finance & Administration at Health Poverty Action

"The timesaving we experience with iplicit is enormous! We are currently preparing our year-end process, and already we are saving six weeks consolidating the various project balance sheets from various QuickBooks versions.

Just take Donor Reports as an example – it’s essential that we have transparency and can report back to Donors on how and where their funds have been spent. With our old system, each Donor report would take three weeks to produce, with iplicit a report can be done in less than 2 days!"


Yorkshire Wildlife Trust

Darren Tiffney, Director of Finance and Central Services

"My finance staff like the fact they can access iplicit from anywhere and are already saving time. To reconcile the main bank account would have taken half a day. Now it takes five minutes.

With expenses, these would have been entered manually on to the finance system previously, taking days to review them. Now it just takes an afternoon to sort all the expenses out, so I do this bi-weekly now."
