PFM & iPayimpact


PFM is a simple to use but powerful back office, that imports money received through iPayimpact as well as other sources (eg non uniform days etc or other ongoing cash payments). This can be all the payments received or just specific ones such as trips, events, shops etc.

PFM provides a cost effective and easy way for your school to manage school trips, before and after school clubs, events, donations, uniform, fundraising and any other school funds.  It produces all the information the organizers needs and all the finance information your finance team requires.

PFM is used by schools and colleges throughout the UK - from nursery schools and small primaries, to large academies. More than 2000 schools are using the program, which was first introduced in 1999
