SCFMC website goes live

Leading Manx software development company PDMS has announced the launch of scfmc.im - the new website for the Small Countries Financial Management Centre.

A secure social network for participants and alumni has also been created.

The SCFMC is a Manx charity, established in June 2009 to help growth and prosperity in small developing states around the world by looking at new ways to address common issues faced by governments and financial sectors.

The centre is based at the International Business School where it runs the annual Small Countries Financial Management Programme (SCFMP), taught by prominent academics from the Universities of Oxford and Harvard.

The programme, intended for finance professionals, focuses on integrity, improved public sector management, and negotiation skills and it is hoped the site will become a vital central communication hub for all the programme's participants.

Included in the website is a secure SCFMC community portal, a members' area which features personal profile pages, activity feeds, forums, real time chat, blogs, events and document libraries.

It also supports photo, audio and video uploads, meaning course participants can keep in touch and continue to reap the benefits of group learning.
