Engage FeesThe Engage Fee Billing module is the foundation component of all school financial data within the Engage management information system.

Engage Fees enables fee-paying schools to manage all student charges, invoicing, statements, collections and debtors. The module offers a full sales ledger capability and split charging, in a fully integrated way.

The Engage Fees module can be seamlessly teamed up with our education focused Engage Accounts suite, which offers all the financial and stock control facilities you would expect. Engage Finance also links with other major Accounts suites such as Pastel, Pastel Evolution, Sage 50, 200 and 500 and Quickbooks.
