We have 14 schools using Compleat...

“We have 14 schools using Compleat, each primary and secondary school can easily buy online with our suppliers including Amazon Business and YPO using Integrated Online Buying, rather than raising POs in a separate system, saving them a huge amount of time. Invoices are digitally captured and matched back to POs, saving our Finance team significant amount of manual data entry, reducing the risk of human error and allowing them to spend time more productively. Finance have real-time visibility of the status of all purchases and invoices across our schools and invoices are automatically posted to PS Financials.

James Rant – Finance Director, Red Kite Learning Trust

Fantastic Software System

“iCompleat has made the review, approval & declining of our company invoices seamless. It has saved so much work internally across all our departments. I can also easily search for previous invoices within the system. I have just started using the Amazon booking tool via iCompleat & again find it seamless & very easy to use. This has saved me from having to download & send copies of all my Amazon invoices internally. Great find saving, easy to use system.”

Niamh P – Executive Assistant

Paperless Heaven

“My experience & use of Compleat is limited to raising Purchase Orders for my organization. In this capacity, it’s an invaluable tool & ends years of rifling through, bulging, ‘dog-eared’ & sometimes lost paperwork. Invoices can be sent directly to the system further enhancing a paperless environment. It’s simple & clean to use. The layout is easy to grasp. It has revolutionized storage, retrieval, editing & works out VAT too”

Review on G2 – Consultant in Education Management

Great invoicing & order management application

“User-friendly interface & iCompleat offers all of the functionality we need as part of working with Sage to manage & process Invoices & Ordering. We also like the integration with Sage for postings & how we can use punchout applications such as Amazon FB for a seamless way to order products.”

Conor S – IT Engineer

Time-saving efficient tool

“Easy & stress-free invoice processing automation. Saves huge amounts of time”

Bryony V – Finance Assistant

Great Software

“Compleat Software is Easy to navigate & has an excellent help guide. When we raise a requisition, we can also set up specific approval routes so that your company can manage who approves particular items. To receipt a purchase Order is quick & straightforward, & if there are any errors, easy to edit. For employees to set a nominee during annual leave is very helpful & makes things much more efficient.”

Review on G2 – User in Telecommunications

Great product!

“I can have my supplier send invoices directly to iCompleat or I can forward them on either scanned or from my mailbox, what was one of my consideration points was varying invoice formats from word docs, excel & pdf, iCompleat handles all these, so makes my life easy as I don’t have to think about handling invoices at all.”

Review on G2 – User in Computer Networking

Excellent solution for all size companies

“First of all the team are superb, especially on the Procurement Services front as they really understand the function. It takes stress off your hands in automatically finding savings opportunities for you, which is not something I would have expected from a transactional software solution. The software itself has been surprisingly quick & painless to implement. They really do fill a void left behind by the major suites who tend to only focus on blue-chip logos.”

Review on G2 – Consultant in Computer Software

A Great AP Automation Solution for Better End to End AP Processes & Visibility.

“Cloud-based, no IT intervention & ease of set up. Integration into the main accounting/ledger solutions (e.g. Xero). Very user-friendly.”

Hilary H – Treasury Manager

Life-changing

“For us, it was the significant change away from paper & manual systems over to online viewing & approval. The flexible workflow approvals allow this to work for all scenarios.”

Review on G2 – Administrator in Performing Arts

A simple interface works well.

“Automatically sending the PO to the supplier without having to send an email manually”

Very Helpful

“I have to say that we have found the team at Compleat to always be very helpful, having been with them since 2017 we have been lucky enough to be with them through a lot of development. They continually take on new ideas, most of which we see implemented along the line. The support response time is always swift and appropriate.”
