During my 8 years as Principal of Santa Maria College we have undertaken a massive building program and also altered our enrolment numbers. Prior to making these changes, approval is needed from the College Advisory Council and the Mercy Education Board. We live in interesting and uncertain economic times and ten years ago who would have predicted the current low interest rates? Prudent financial planning requires inputting the best and worst case scenarios in terms of variables such as; interest rates, Federal and State funding, loan repayments, enrolment numbers and staff pay increases.

Kilbracken Destiny has simplified this task and allowed us to stress test our financial position. A simple change to a variable, a click of a button and our 10 year financial plan is in front of us. Further scrutiny and answering questions such “what if the State Government gives 0% increase?” – can be done immediately. Kilbracken Destiny is product that comes with my highest recommendation.

Ian Elder – Principal – Santa Maria College

I have used the product for three years at two Independent Schools. I have run numerous planning sessions with my Finance Committees and Governing bodies to review and enhance the various Annual Budgets, Capital Development and Strategic Plans. I have also used the product when discussing long term planning with various lending institutions. I believe it is very well priced and I strongly recommend the acquisition of this product.

Jim Watkins – Business Manager – Santa Maria College

I commenced using Destiny in 2007 for the preparation of my school budget papers after I looked around for a product that was comprehensive, yet easy to understand and use. I have continued to use and support the software since that time as I have found it meets the school’s requirements. Staff have found the Budget Papers’ element very easy to use and the automatic consolidation of departments/sections is really useful. Our Board members find the Destiny reports provide them with enough detail so that they can make informed decisions in relation to setting fees and financial forecasting. Paul Butler has always been responsive to our needs and it is obvious that he has a wealth of experience in the school environment.
I would recommend that schools consider Destiny if they are looking for a program that can enhance their budget preparation and Board reporting.
