We are Orovia

Established in 2004 by directors Steve Cowley, Chris Green and Jim Hartley, Orovia has quickly become a market leader in education finance software. We now support over 4000 schools, academies and MATs.

What we do

From the beginning we've listened to our customers and have taken on-board their feedback. This feedback shapes our software, training and support, guaranteeing that we provide a service which is intrinsically linked to the highly specific needs of our customers.

It doesn't stop there though; we hold annual user group sessions for customers, ensuring that they can meet us face to face, give suggestions and receive personalised advice and top-up training, as well as getting a preview of the newest versions of our software. If you would like to be part of one of these meetings, contact us on info@orovia.com

We may be experts, but we’re friendly ones at that; we haven’t got our fantastic reputation by being all straight faces and stiff collars. Why not give us a call and find out what sets us apart?

Education experts

With over 10 years in the industry, we know education. Our budget planning, payroll and HR products are designed with education in mind.

Small, friendly business

Sure, we’re a growing business, but we’ll never lose our human touch. We build great relationships with our customers and keep in contact on a regular basis.

In-house development

Our software is designed in-house by our own team of experts. We keep a close eye on every stage of development and ensure we always listen to and apply customer feedback to the process.

A Message from our clients

I look at this as a partnership. I genuinely feel that if I phone up with a problem, there’s someone on the end of the phone who wants to make that issue go away for me. I feel that the team take my problem personally and seriously and I know they’ll sort it. That’s always a great thing.

John Banbrook, Farringdon Academy Trust

The Flying High Trust have worked closely with Orovia since becoming an academy Trust. The Orovia team have always been quick to support & have a real willingness to help. This support is instant, with someone always happy to take your call & resolve your question whilst you are on the telephone. They constantly go out of their way to make you feel supported & help with any question, no matter how small, & all of the team are really friendly. The support from Orovia has been fantastic, we couldn’t ask for more!

Elaine Armstrong, Trust Finance and Business Manager

I have found Orovia a very useful tool in budget setting and forecasting, I support many schools and Academies through a multi Academy trust and each have complex scenarios and different budgets. With many changes in funding planned in the near future, I’m happy that Schools BPS provides updates and changes to cover all national changes to policy and allows long term scenario planning that can be amended at the touch of a button. The system is tailored to your individual needs and if you want additional specific changes the support team are excellent and very prompt. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as they provide a trust and accuracy that allows me to concentrate on the budget planning without worrying about the logistics and the systems that underpin it.”
